Contexts for Learning Mathematics (CFLM) uses rich, authentic contexts provide a backdrop for fostering a positive growth mindset through:

- the use of mathematical models as thinking tools
- tenacious problem solving
- the reading and writing of mathematical arguments and justification

Flexibly designed, CFLM units can be used to enhance your teaching, supplement your curriculum, or differentiate instruction. Each unit stands on its own, presenting a two-week sequence of interconnected investigations, games, and minilessons created to support key math topics.

The series’ **18 classroom-tested units** are organized into three age-appropriate packages:

**Investigating Number Sense, Addition, and Subtraction****(Grades K–3)**supports the development of such fundamental topics as place value, compensation and equivalence, addition and subtraction on the open number line, and the efficient use of five- and ten-structures.

**Investigating Multiplication and Division****(Grades 3–5)**explores with increasing sophistication big ideas in multiplication and division including systematic factoring, the distributive, associative, and commutative properties as well as their use in computation.

**Investigating Fractions, Decimals, and Percents****(Grades 4–6)**examines fundamental topics such as equivalence of fractions, how to multiply and divide with fractions, proportional reasoning, rates, and the ordering of decimals.
