How Does Posting Math Problems in Your Classroom Help Students Learn More? There is no doubt that for most students, understanding math is a very daunting experience. Being able to learn all the rules, patterns, laws, equations, theorems, and operations makes it very difficult for a student to understand math problems effectively. Teachers all over the world try different tactics that help students get better at mathematics, one of which is posting a math problem in the classroom. This is a highly effective strategy that allows students to solve one math problem every day rather than being bombarded with a bunch of it. This strategy helps the students develop a sense of accomplishment when they solve the problem while creating a competitive environment in the classroom. Keeping scores can help students solve the problems quickly and get a better hang of problem-solving. When students learn to enjoy doing math problems, they will eventually get better at it and not get frustrated while finding a solution. We have put together some excitement for classroom walls and binders. On the pages below, you will find complete walk throughs of all major Common Core Math topics by grade level. We add new posters all the time too.


  • Preschool - Students start with just working to understand the concept of a total value.
  • Kindergarten - We work on mastering counting, recognizing numbers and sorting objects.
  • Grade 1 - The goal is to get students to twenty both with addition and subtraction.
  • Grade 2 - Students work with graphs for the first time and they take their addition and subtraction skills to new heights.
  • Grade 3 - This is where algebra shows up for the first time. We also start to calculate basic forms of probability and measure all types of items in their proper units of measurement.
  • Grade 4 - The math begins to become more abstract and focuses on operations and introduction of fractions.
  • Grade 5 - Place value is paramount at this level as we make our way into decimal territory.
  • Grade 6 - Geometry and functions play a large role at this level.
  • Grade 7 - This is where math really intensifies critical thinking and recognizing trends in data are where you swing with these.
  • Grade 8 - It seems like every is just amplified at this level. You will see algebra, geometry, measurement, and do a ton of data analysis at this level.
  • High School Algebra - Students learn how to manipulate expressions and equations to find all kinds of unknown values.
  • High School Geometry - This start out pretty simple and slowly becomes the most abstract form of math you have encountered, pretty quickly.
