It seems as though everywhere you look you can find Common Core math resources. This is both a blessing and a curse. I remember years ago (before Common Core) trying to search the internet for resources on math topics such as imaginary numbers or adding rational expressions. I think that is why blogging drew me in and I started this blog. I was having a hard time finding great tasks, and using vetted tasks from teachers like me was a blessing. I wanted to share!
But now we have the CCSS and that means there should be a lot of great resources out there. Be careful! I have come across a lot of resources labeled CCSS and PARCC, only to find weak content and revamped activities. Not everything has to be new, but everything should be aligned. I wanted to share one of my new favorite sites for finding great resources for CCSS in mathematics. It has become my ‘one stop shop’.
Here is why I love this site:
- This site take the best resources and organizes them in one location.
- It is easy to search by standards to find tasks.
- You will find links to all the curriculum maps released by states.
- There is no password or login required!!
Here is part of the mission statement from the site:
“There is so much that has been created by so many and it is out there free to the public via the internet. However, it remains difficult to sift through it all to find the best things for our children to use. This site will hopefully allow teachers to spend more time teaching and give kids more of an opportunity to learn both at school and at home.”
You will find resources from
- Khan Academy
- Learn Zillion
- Mathematics Assessment Project (MAP)
- NCTM Illuminations
- Science Net
- Texas Instruments
- Dan Meyer
- Hot Math
- and many more…
