NEW! The Mathematics Design Collaborative (MDC) brings to mathematics teaching and learning high-quality instructional tools and professional support services that play a pivotal role in helping the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation realize its ambitious goal of having 80% of low-income and minority students ready for college by 2025. The site contains course outlines provided to help teachers place the Classroom Challenges in their math courses. The Course Outlines illustrate how the mathematics of the California Core State Standards (CCSS) flows from Grade 6 to Algebra 2 in rigorous, focused, and coherent units of study. Classroom Challenges are allocated to various units within a Course Outline. For more information on the Classroom Challenges, please see the Math Assessment Project's website. µ
tasks & assessments, lessons, year long planning materials, and how CCSS in math is different from previous math standardsµ
This site includes charts and information for the CCSS in math.
Did you know that there are dozens of other kinds of calculators? If you think about it, we can use math to measure and calculate all sorts of things, from climate, to shopping, cooking, saving money, converting measurements, and plenty more. Visit this web site to check out a multitude of calculators.
This project has created Task Forces to collect, design, and organize resources that could be used in professional development (PD) that will strengthen teachers’ content knowledge to teach these standards: K-2 Number Sense and Place Value, Fractions from a Number Line Approach, Model with Mathematics, Transformational Geometry, and High School Mathematical Modeling. These Task Forces have establish a high quality list of resources that PD providers can use (e.g., articles, books, videos, technology, problems, existing curriculum, outlines of presentations).
Free Test Online has developed sets of practice questions for grades K-12 that illustrate the full range of difficulty expected by particular CCSS.
Here you will find tools and instructional materials (sample curriculum framework documents, PARCC prototyping project, key visualizations-be sure to explore all tabs at the top of this webpage) that helpyou to better understand and to implement the CCSSM. This site has been createdthrough a collaboration of the Charles A. Dana Center at the University ofTexas at Austin and Agile Mind with partial funding from the Bill & MelindaGates Foundation.
Wiki in Utah, dedicated to grades K-5 for math CCSS resources - contains teacher created tasks aligned to the CCSS
Teachers and students can create 5 different kinds of graphs (bar, line, pie, area, and X-Y) that can be printed or saved as a file to be inserted into homemade assessments.
These documents for grades 2-12 are designed to help understand the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) by providing examples that show a range of format and complexity.µ

These curriculum modules for Pre-K to high school in mathematics are marked by in-depth focus on fewer topics. They integrate the CCSS, rigorous classroom reasoning, extended classroom time devoted to practice and reflection through extensive problem sets, and high expectations for mastery. The time required to complete a curriculum module will depend on the scope and difficulty of the mathematical content that is the focus of the module (first priority cluster area for a given grade level).µ
Contains unit plans, curriculum maps, lesson plans for math aligned to common core state standards, and more...µ
Illustrative Mathematics (for K-12) provides guidance by illustrating the range and types of mathematical work that students experience in a faithful implementation of the Common Core State Standards, and by publishing other tools that support implementation of the standards.µ
This site features classroom examples for K-12 of innovative teaching methods and insights into student learning, tools for mathematics instruction that teachers can use immediately, and video tours of the ideas and materials on the site.µ
