A wordpress blog I found with interesting information :

“News about tools that are being developed to support implementation of the Common Core State Standards”

http://commoncoretools.wordpress.com/tools/

Want to read the Common Core Mathematics Standards? This link will take you there:

http://www.corestandards.org/assets/CCSSI_Math%20Standards.pdf

Appendix A to the Common Core Mathematics Standards has information about the two Pathways for organizing courses and how the standards are divided into courses where one standard can be taught at different levels. A great resource for curriculum.

http://www.corestandards.org/assets/CCSSI_Mathematics_Appendix_A.pdf

I spent time browsing information on other state websites: Indiana especially caught my eye since they recommended each teacher put into place the eight Mathematical Practices with the current curriculum and then begin to add Common Core.

That state up north which shall remain nameless has a site with numerous resources:

Found this site to follow on Facebook that contains “rich” problems for mathematics:

They also have a curriculum page that has curriculum for England but has great problems to use:

Edutopia is one of my favorites to follow. This week they published an end of year addition that included an article on how to make mathematics more meaningful to students (among other articles):

Oh, and while you are visiting Edutopia don’t forget to look at the list of 80 online resources! Something for everyone!

Many schools in our area are using ACT end of course exams.
