## Rich Mathematical Tasks from NSCM

Happy New Year Everyone! I wish you all health, happiness and prosperity! May all of your mathematical endeavors be fruitful. What better way to start the New Year than with a great mathematical task! NCSM has posted a great task called *Bugs, Giraffes, Elephants and More* showing the way that the practices intersect with the content. Each task has teacher notes, the standards connections and suggestions for teaching and assessing the task. There is also a rubric and samples of student work. Try the task at your schools. Let me know how it goes.

Happy Mathing and Happy New Year!
