This session will address the national shift from teaching isolated problem solving skills in mathematics, to teaching mathematics via a problem-solving approach.  A collection of resources will be provided to attendees, which they will be able to take back to their own classrooms and utilize immediately with their students. Multiple versions of problem-solving templates that have been created by teachers involved in the Arizona Mathematics Partnership will be shared, as well as utilized, during the session.  Attendees will actively engage in problem-solving tasks, and will experience, first-hand, how the incorporation of a tool such as a problem-solving template can help to raise their students' performance levels.
