Links to Other ResourcesThe Council is collaborating with partner organizations to build the tools and support necessary for implementation of rigorous mathematics instruction and higher student achievement. The following is a list of websites providing information and free resources to support implementation of the Common Core Standards for Mathematics.
This website provides information about the PARCC consortium: assessment, implementation, instructional frameworks, and other topics related to Common Core.
This website provides information about the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium. This information includes implementation, instructional frameworks, and other topics related to Common Core.
This website describes this organization and provides a variety of information on the Common Core initiative including articles, research, Next Generation Assessment activities, links to other related websites and resources.
The Tri-State Collaborative (comprised of educational leaders from Massachusetts, New York, and Rhode Island and facilitated by Achieve) has developed rubrics and review processes so that educators may evaluate the quality of lessons and units developed to address the Common Core State Standards for mathematics and ELA/literacy. At the page, click on the “Tools” tab, found half-way down the page.
This website houses sample mathematics tasks illustrative of the CCSS. It is an ever-growing archive juried by trained alignment experts.
This site contains news about tools that are being developed to support implementation of the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics.
This is a website that is populated by Student Achievement Partners that provides articles, sites, research and tools that provide support for Common Core implementation.
This site contains ready-to-use professional development materials and performance tasks designed to help teachers understand the Standards for Mathematical Practice and implement them in their classrooms. The Noyce Foundation’s Inside Mathematics website [insidemathematics.org] provides the core resources for these materials. Each module supports a 1.5-to 3-hour session that focuses on one or two of the mathematical practices.
Student Achievement Partners has created this site to support implementation of the Common Core State Standards. It includes the “instructional shifts”, as well as other resources free of charge.
This site was developed to connect practice and research. This link focuses attention on middle school mathematics and provides a window into sense-making in mathematics. Additionally, there is a 5 x 8 observer tool available on this site. The 5 x 8 card focuses the observers’ attention on what students are saying and doing so that students' thinking can be at the center of educators’ discussions.
The Mathematics Publisher's Criteria endeavors to support faithful implementation of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics by providing specific criteria for aligned materials. These criteria are based on the design principles of focus and coherence. The document is intended to guide the work of publishers and curriculum developers, as well as states and school districts, as they design, evaluate, and select materials or revise existing materials to align with the Common Core.
