Carole's Gift to You

This month’s free book is Alge-Grid: What’s the a? By Carole Greenes and Tanner Wolfram. Enhance your students’ algebraic reasoning talents with these grid puzzles. Students use clues to find the value of a, evaluate expressions, and fill in the grid with numbers from 1 to 9.

Visit Carole’s Corner next month for another free gift!

Carole's Creative Puzzles, Problems, and Tasks

Have you and your students played Carole's newest Jeopardy-like game called SMASH (Science, Math, Art, Sports, History)?. Read the Game Booklet and play Game 2.

Carole's Commentary

"The math community thanks Carole Greenes for delivering an interesting session at the NCSM National Math Conference in Anaheim, CA on September 27, 2022. Here are three items for participants (and others who enjoy Carole's Corner). Thank you Carole.

1. Identifying and Capitalizing on Student Interests and Hidden Talents (ppt)

2. Free algebra puzzle book: READY-X

3. Free mathematical thinking book: Pattern Grid-unLocks

Great Ideas from the MathLink’s Team

The NEW MathLinks Core Program for Grades 6, 7, 8 is now available for pilot testing, and will be available for sale in Summer 2023. The program includes "Activity Routines" to engage students. These Computational Fluency Challenges introduce two of the routines.


Welcome to Carole’s Corner!

CMAT is honored that Carole Greenes is joining our CMAT team as a distinguished contributor. I personally met Carole when she wrote and directed the 50th anniversary musical celebration for NCSM. Her energy and spirit are contagious, and now Carole is part of the CMAT family.

We are so excited that Carole will be sharing some of her engaging puzzles, projects, tasks, and wisdom with all of us through Carole’s Corner. Every month, Carole will share her thoughts of the moment in Carole’s Corner. We also will post some of Carole’s activities, puzzles, tasks, and projects, with connections to MathLinks materials. Carole would like these selected materials (and solutions) to be free to you, so download, enjoy yourself, and use with your students!


Thank you, Carole,
