# Math Minutes

— sets of 10 problems that help students to solve problems effortlessly and rapidly. We usually do them at the start of every class. They are scored, and we discuss any approach a student takes to get an answer. New skills are addressed as the year unfolds, but each Minute includes one of each type of problem.
