Common Core State Standards
|Helpful Links for Common Core Mathematics
This site is the official home of the Common Core State Standards. It is hosted and maintained by the CCSSO and the NGA Center. It provideds parents, educators, policymakers, journalists and others easy access to the actual standards, as well as supporting information and resources.
Illustrative Mathematics is a discerning community of educators dedicated to the coherent learning of mathematics. We collaborate at illustrativemathematics.org, sharing carefully vetted resources for teachers and teacher leaders to give our children an understanding of mathematics and skill in using it. We provide expert guidance to states and districts working to improve mathematics education.
Inside Mathematics has worked closely with mathematics education leaders involved in the creation of the national Common Core State Standards for Mathematics to align the resources of this site with the national standards. Our goal is to guide and support educators in learning the Common Core framework and relate it to teaching practice and students’ learning. The nonlinear nature of web-based resources will support educators in building deeper understanding of what the Common Core Standards look like in practice, with a goal of building robust mathematical thinking in all students.
Implementing the Mathematical Practice Standards
Implementing the Mathematical Practice Standards is an EDC project funded by the National Science Foundation to develop Illustrations of the Mathematical Practices and a professional development curriculum for teachers in grades 5–10.
Math Common Core Coalition
The Mathematics Common Core Coalition works to provide expertise and advice on issues related to the effective implementation of the Common Core State Standards for School Mathematics (CCSSM).
PTA'S Parents' Guide to Student Success: Grades Kindergarten-High School
PTA Parents Guide to Student Success K12 ELA Mathematics.pdf
This guide includes an overview of some of the key things your child will learn in English/Literacy and Math in Kindergarten through High School, ideas for activities to help your child learn at home, and topics of discussion for talking to your child's teacher about his or her academic progress.
Progressions Documents for the Common Core Math Standards
The Progressions for the common Core State Standard are updated versions of those early progression drafts, revised and edited to correspond with the Standards by members of the original Progresssions work team, toghether with other mathematicians and education researchers not involved in the initial writing. They note key connections among standards, point out cognitive difficulties and pedagogical solutions, and give more detail on particularly knotty areas of the mathematics.
Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC)
SBAC is a state-led consortium working to develop next-generation assessments that accurately measure student progress towarde college and career readiness. SBACA is one of two multistate consortia awarding funding frmo the U.S. Department of Education in 2010 to develop an assessment stsytem aligned to the Common Core State Standards by the 2014-2015 school year.
Tool to Enhance State Mathematics College and Career Readiness Standards Implementation Plans
This tool, developed by the Council of Chief State School Officers, summarizes current research and promising practices about what teachers need to know and be able to do in order to teach college and career ready standards. This resource was made possible through support from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
The Toolkit is a set of interrelated, freely available instruments for evaluating instructional and assessment materials for alignment to the CCSS: includes IMET tool, EQuIP rebric, AET, and Publisher's Criteria.
