## Mathwire.com: Math Mats Resources

Math mats are wonderful tools for developing mathematical concepts and reasoning. They are also effective assessment tools, enabling teachers to see how students work through a problem, and allowing teachers to work with individuals or small groups for remediation or enrichment, as needed. Finally, math mat work provides a format for mathematical discussion, encouraging students to use mathematical language as they describe their thinking to other students.

This series of pages is designed as a resource to teachers as they differentiate instruction for varied learners in the class. Each page discusses how to use the set of mats to develop mathematical understanding and support student growth.
