Creating Anchor Tasks
Sarah Schaefer and Dr. Marian Small
“There is no decision that teachers make that has a greater impact on students’ opportunities to learn and on their perceptions about what mathematics is than the selection or creation of the task with which the teacher engages students in studying mathematics.” (Lappan & Briars, 1995).
