1) New shapes posters for your classroom
Which One Doesn't Belong? Shapes Posters, by Christopher Danielson Upgrade your walls and your instruction with this new set of shapes posters by Christopher Danielson, author of Which One Doesn't Belong? Designed to spark curiosity, creativity, and conversation about geometry, the posters address and prevent misconceptions and move beyond treating geometry as vocabulary to memorize.

Just like in Christopher's book, each shape is a right answer because each shape has a reason not to belong. Students can talk about their reasons using informal everyday words, specialized mathematical vocabulary, or a mix of both. Often, these posters will spark a need for a new word as well as clarity about its meaning.

The posters are appropriate for grades K-8 and beyond. The set of eight 18-by-24-inch posters includes one for each of the following: square, rectangle, rhombus, triangle, hexagon, polygon, shape, and curve.

Preorder now—posters will be available mid-August:
