Curriculum Materials Matter! Evaluating the Evaluation Process
Diane J. Briars, NCTM PresidentAdoption of curriculum materials is one of the most important decisions a teacher, school, or district can make. While state standards describe what students are expected to learn and be able to do, what is taught in classrooms—the implemented curriculum—is heavily influenced by textbooks and other instructional materials. The instructional materials affect lesson content, depth and duration of instruction for particular topics, and topic sequence. So, while we may talk about curriculum materials as just "resources," the fact is that they strongly influence classroom instruction—for better or worse. President's Message

What is a Counting Circle?
Blogarithm"Is it okay to blog about something that is not my innovation or lesson idea? Certainly! Blogging includes sharing your practices and things you've learned from other teachers. In the Math Twitter Blog-o-Sphere (#MTBoS), I love reading how teachers share and implement one another's ideas." Learn more in the latest MTMS Blogarithm post.

Math is a Verb
14326For most people, the word mathematics is a noun. But for many people in different cultures, math is not simply something they learn in school but something they do as an intrinsic part of their everyday lives. Math is a Verb: Activities and Lessons from Cultures Around the World provides culturally situated examples, each linked to Common Core objectives that show how math can be so much more than a story problem or an exercise in a worksheet with little or no context.
