Happy Mathing,

Dr. Nicki

The importance of students setting math goal was very interesting. Teacher using this graph as an aid to plan instruction was also a great idea. I like the site you listed and have to decided to utilize the forms in this site to help students who are struggling in math. Great Way to start the New Year Mathing.
