Thinking Math Microlesson

Thinking Mathematics was developed as part of AFT’s longstanding Educational Research and Dissemination Program (ER&D) in 1989. It is the product of collaboration between researchers and a small group of AFT teachers. The teachers read the best of research available on how children learn mathematics, research that was recommended by the researcher team, and developed what became Thinking Mathematics.
