CCSS-Mathematics Resources  ~ Updated December 30, 2013 CCSS_logo

CCSS Videos from The Hunt Institute - The Hunt Institute has a number of CCSS videos, including videos with Dr. Bill McCallum; see the related blog post at:  http://isupportthecommoncore.net/2013/12/13/common-core-authors-on-developing-the-standards/

Bill McCallum's Blog - Dr. McCallum is the CCSS-M lead writer.  His blog has numerous resources, presentations, links, and the like to current (and archived) CCSS-M materials.

Michigan CCSS Resources - website sponsored by MAISA (Michigan Association of Intermediate School Administrators) and REMC (Regional Educational Media Center Association of Michigan)

Statement of Support of the CCSS-M from the Conference Board on the Mathematical Sciences (CBMS) - July 24, 2013

Parent Resouces for the CCSS - Located in the Tools section of Dr. McCallum's blog

Attending to the verbs in the Standards for Mathematical Practice - a guest blog post from Dev Sinha

Implementation Action Briefs for the CCSS for Elementary School Leaders, Secondary School Leaders, and Counselors...and other publications

Real World Math from NCTM - new website for middle grades mathematics; articles, activities, experiments, investigations, problems

3-Act Math Problems - Several websites focus on three-act math problems.  These are similar in approach to the SBAC constructed response / performance task problems.  They're also great to have students create and present.  These sites include:

Core Math Tools - Core Math Tools (CMT) is a FREE, downloadable software tool that provides a variety of technology tools for exploring mathematics and problem solving.  Tools are available for algebra and functions, data analysis and statistics, geometry, and simulation.  This tool was created by curriculum and software developers from Michigan State University and Western Michigan University, in conjunction with the Core-Plus Mathematics Project.  The tools are being hosted on the NCTM website.

Achieve's CTE-related Assessment Tasks - Achieve has partnered with National Association of State Directors of Career Technical Education (NASDCTEc) to develop and post a number of real-world scenario tasks.

Michigan ASCD CCSS Resources - Michigan ASCD has developed a list of CCSS resources.

Danielle Seabold's CCSS-M Live Binder - Danielle Seabold, Mathematics Consultant at Kalamazoo RESA, has compiled a comprehensive CCSS-M resource file in her Live Binder, and updates it frequently.

A Graph of the CCSS-M - Jason Zimba's overview and maps showing how the CCSS-M are connected.  A related document with narrative is available at:  http://commoncoretools.me/2011/07/06/examples-of-structure-in-the-content-standards/

NCSM CCSS-M Webinar Series - Check out this series of webinars on the CCSS-M from the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics (NCSM).  Topics range from introducing the CCSS-M, to using the NCSM materials alignment tools (see information below), to the Standards for Mathematical Practice.

PTA Parent Guides - These grade-by-grade guides (in English and in Spanish) are a great resource for Parents, explaining what their child should be learning a the given grade level.  They also provide suggestions for parents for learning activities outside of school.  http://www.pta.org/4446.htm OR   http://www.PTA.org/parentsguide .

Achieve the Core website - articles, websites, and research

Illustrative Mathematics Project- Illustrates the range and types of mathematical work that students are expected to experience as the CCSS-M are implemented with fidelity.  Creator/Lead Author is Bill McCallum, the lead CCSS-M standards writer.  This site continues to be under development.  http://www.illustrativemathematics.org

CCSS-M Learning Progressions Documents- Bill McCallum's group is working to provide several mathematics progressions documents, describing how a topic evolves as students move from grade to grade.  Visit http://ime.math.arizona.edu/progressions
Currently a draft of the K-5 Number and Operations in Base Ten document is available.  Scroll down to the "Products" section at the bottom of the page.

Mathematics Curricular Analysis Tool for the CCSS-M (Now Available) - Creator/Lead Author Bill Bush from the University of Louisville is heading this project to produce three tools to analyze curricular materials vs. the CCSS-M.  One tool will help users see how well key content areas are treated in each of four grade bands (K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12).  A second tool will analyze how well the eight Standards for Mathematical Practice are integrated into curricular materials.  The third tools will help assess pedagogical aspects of curricular materials.  These are now available on the NCSM website at...

Hyperlinked Version of the CCSS-M:  Want to navigate easily within the CCSS-Math document?  Try using (or downloading) this hyperlinked version from Bill McCallum and his team.

Visual Depiction of the Mathematical Practices:  This brief graphic shows some higher-order structure for the eight Standards for Mathematical Practice.

Inside Mathematics - This professional resource for educators features classroom examples, tools for mathematics instruction, and video tours of the materials and ideas available on the website.  Materials here are being aligned to the CCSS-Math.  http://www.insidemathematics.org

MARS Project- Mathematics Assessment Resource Service:  If you've been teaching in Michigan for a while, you might remember the "Balanced Assessment for the Mathematics Curriculum" project - a series of workshops and materials around high-quality assessment tasks for students (geared toward grades 4, 8, and 9-12, but can be adapted for other grade level use).  If you are looking for resources for "performance events" and "performance tasks" (a la SMARTER Balanced Consortium proposed assessments), you might dig out your BAMC materials, or check out the resources here.

http://www.mathshell.com/scp/ba.htm (synopsis and link to some free resources)
http://toolkitforchange.org/toolkit/documents/285_24_ttl_ba_pkgs.pdf (summary of books)

Toolkit for Change - from MARS - not strictly a CCSS-M resource but a wealth of resources about standards, assessment, tools, and more.

What Mathematics do Teachers Need to Know? PDF Print E-mail

The Mathematical Education of Teachers II

Posted on "Tools for the Common Core" - November 27, 2012

MET II proposes a new set of courses, and redesigned courses, to better prepare K-12 mathematics teachers.  The report hopes to answer the question, "What mathematics do teachers need to know?"  If you are a mathematics teacher an ever wondered how your college coursework was supposed to prepare you for teaching mathematics, you'll find this suggested plan intriguing.

CCSS-M Learning Progressions

On Dr. Bill McCallum's Blog - In case you're wondering "What were they thinking??" when the CCSS-M authors wrote the standards and sequenced them into grades as they did, be sure to visit Dr. Bill McCallum's CCSS-M Learning Progressions pages within his blog, Tools for the Common Core.  A number of draft progressions have been released, and readers are welcome to comment on them...and Dr. McCallum frequently responds within his blog to posts.  This can be an invaluable tool to curriculum planning committees, PLC groups, and individual mathematics educators.

Draft Learning Progressions for Functions and Algebra Drop by Dr. Bill McCallum's blog to read and enjoy these recently released learning progressions.  Since these are likely to be arranged into courses rather than grade levels, these have a bit different flavor than K-8 progressions you may have already reviewed.  (12/4/2012)

MAISA CCSS Units now on Atlas! PDF Print E-mail

MAISA MAISA_atlas_logo

The MAISA CCSS-M model units are now available on the MAISA Atlas Curriculum Management software system.  They are publicly viewable with no need for a user ID or password.  Keep in mind that many units are still in DRAFT form.  This project is scheduled to be complete in the summer of 2013.  Thanks go to the hundreds of Michigan mathematics educators who have begun crafting the great CCSS-M resources!
