Title: Habits of Mind: Mathematics Problem Solving Strategies
Url: http://www2.edc.org/mathproblems/searchHabit.asp
Publisher: Education Development Center
 Description: These roughly 200 lesson plans are related to mathematical problem solving and are provided by the non-profit Education Development Center. The lesson plans are designed to help students develop both deep conceptual mathematical understandings and technical skills. The plans are provided both as PDF files and in HTML, and teacher comments are also provided. Topics covered include modeling / mathematizing; finding analogies / structural similarities / isomorphisms; working with graphs; working with units/dimensional analysis; proving; formulating conjectures / generalizing / abstracting; finding and using invariants; creating / analyzing an algorithm; dealing with non-unique solutions; visualization; solving by special cases; verifying / interpreting results; analyzing parameters; estimating; inventing and using notation. This is an extensive and thorough resource for first-cycle college mathematics teachers and teachers of advanced high school math.
