The Problem-Solving Cycle is a series of three interconnected professional development workshops for mathematics teachers, organized around a rich mathematical task. This task enables teachers to share a common learning, planning and teaching experience.

In the Problem-Solving Cycle, teachers think deeply about mathematics content and mathematics instruction. Together with a knowledgeable facilitator, teachers reflect on their areas of expertise and areas in which they want to improve. They select goals for the professional development workshops, including goals for learning mathematics content and exploring new pedagogical practices. The Problem-Solving Cycle model provides a structure for helping teachers to meet these goals, and enables the development of a professional learning community.
