Each issue of DynaMath includes a Teacher’s Guide with helpful tools for teaching with the magazine in your classroom.

DynaMath creates a variety of skills sheets to help assess conceptual understanding and build fluency with standards-based, grade-specific problems at multiple levels. Learn more about our differentiated Skills Sheets here.
Each feature article includes a customizable digital form of the questions that you can assign with your Google Classroom account. Best of all, it’s scored automatically for you! To learn more about using Google Quizzes and integrating with Google Classroom, click here.
Don’t use Google? We also provide blank answer sheets for all of the problems in each issue. Have your students show all of their work so you can better evaluate their understanding of the math skills.
