Math Pathway Rubrics:

Islington Junior Middle School did a Math Pathway on Problem Solving with a focus on Thinking. The teachers in Grades 1-4 and Grades 5-8 worked collaboratively to create rubric that focused on Thinking. Please feel free to use these rubrics to guide your Thinking Pathway.

Both Pathway Rubrics are posted in this document (click on the 5-8 tab at the bottom of the page to view the Junior/Intermediate Rubric).


Park Lawn Junior Middle School used this graphic organizer to map out their Math Pathway on Problem Solving. Thank you to Bev Tratnik, Joel Allen, Brett Quance, Sherri Khun and Erin Quinn for contributing this Pathway Map.
