This begins a sharing blog of Mathematics CCSS sources that optimize professional learning opportunities for mathematics colleagues and hopefully affect student learning and engagement.
Every additional post or comment will be dated, recognized, and posted. Roland O’Daniel and I are looking forward to this sharing opportunity.
Mathematics Common Core State Standards Tools
Common Core State Standards (CCSS) – homepage has the latest news and updates for implementing the CCSS.
Tools for Common Core Standards – website has a collection of tools for implementing the CCSS in Mathematics authored by four educators. There are continual updates and significant at this point are Progressions written for the following:
- Draft K–6 Progression on Geometry
- Draft K–5 Progression on Measurement and Data (measurement part)
- Draft K–5 progression on Measurement and Data (data part)
- Draft K–5 Progression on Number and Operations in Base Ten
- Draft K–5 Progression on Counting and Cardinality and Operations and Algebraic Thinking
- Draft 3–5 progression on Number and Operations—Fractions
- Draft 6–8 Progression on Statistics and Probability
- Draft 6–8 Progression on Expressions and Equations
- Draft 6–7 Progression on Ratios and Proportional Relationships
- Draft High School Progression on Statistics and Probability
- Draft High School Progression on Algebra
- Draft High School Progression on Functions
Mathematics Common Core Toolbox – provides examples of assessment tasks and other resources; K-12
Teaching Channel – provides classroom examples demonstrating various CCS lessons – such as use of the number line in Integer addition; use of vocabulary; K-12
Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium – has assessment information
Mathematics Assessment Project – is a collaboration between the Shell Center team at the University of Nottingham and the University of California, Berkeley with classroom lessons (extremely thorough with materials and linkages), summative assessments, and professional development modules.
Inside Mathematics – has professional resources for teachers that “ features classroom examples of innovative teaching methods and insights into student learning, tools for mathematics instruction that teachers can use, and video tours of the ideas and materials on the site.”
Tech Learning January 2013 Edition – tools for Common Core on pages 34- 36 and apps for mathematics page 42.
Southeast Comprehensive Center – has an audiovisual resource focusing on the standards and includes examples/illustrations geared to enhancing understanding. The intent of each content-focused video is to clarify the meaning of the individual standard .
Quantile Teacher Assistant – is a tool that locates instructional resources and identifies those skills most relevant to the topic of the daily instruction.
ASCD Common Core Resources – ASCD site contains CCSS updates with information, resources, and newsletter; K-12
National Council of Teachers of Mathematics – has Core Math Tools in a downloadable suite of interactive software tools for algebra and functions, geometry and trigonometry, and statistics and probability. Other lessons that support the CCSS are available at all grade levels; High School
National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics – provides resources to support educators in understanding the CCSS – tasks, webinars, other links, reports, materials, etc..
State and Local Councils of Mathematics and Departments of Educations – Kentucky Department of Education, in conjunction with the Kentucky Center for Mathematics, is producing a series of podcasts, titled Teaching to the Standards, showing the importance of, and accessibility to, the Standards of Mathematical Practices (SMP).
New York’s CCSS Resource – New York’s educational resources
The Partnership for Assessments of Readiness for College and Career – site offers guidance and support to assist with applying Common Core to instruction. The site posts most recent CC resources; K-12
The Student Achievement Partners – website has resources to support CC implementation; K-12
Illustrative Mathematics Project – site provides a variety of tools illustrating the kinds of mathematics students experience through the CCS. For each Mathematical Practice there are videos of students at various levels illustrating the kinds of dialogue and thinking opportunities provided through the Practice; K-12
Common Core Essentials – Created by Darren Burris (Boston) as a way of organizing permanent resources; 4/8/13; K-12
Please post your recommended resources and any notes that will be useful to our colleagues. Roland and I in turn will keep track of the resources and share with all the readers.
