ByExample Math Learning
Math ByExample and Algebra ByExample are collections of strategically-designed problem sets developed to help students dislodge misconceptions–both small errors and fundamental misunderstandings. ByExample assignments incorporate correct and incorrect “worked examples” for students to analyze and explain. After each worked example, students are given a similar problem to solve themselves. This approach gives students practice solving problems and practice modeling, analyzing, critiquing, and articulating mathematical arguments.
Although designed for K12 use, these standards-aligned resources are highly relevant to adult learners. Educators can download free, ready-to-use mathematics assignments by topic or as complete workbooks; teacher resources are also available. Educators must create free accounts with the SERP (Strategic Education Research Partnership) website in order to download materials.
