The Center for the Study of Mathematics Curriculum (CSMC) leaders developed this volume to further the goal of teachers having opportunities to interact across grades in ways that help both teachers and their students see connections in schooling as they progress through the grades. Each section of this volume contains three companion chapters appropriate to the three grade bands—K–5, 6–8, and 9–12—focusing on important curriculum issues related to understanding and implementing the CCSSM.

How do you help your students demonstrate mathematical proficiency toward the learning expectations of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)?
This leader companion to the grade-level teacher guides illustrates how to sustain successful implementation of the CCSS for mathematics. School leaders will discover how to support and focus the work of their collaborative mathematics teams for significant student achievement and improvement. Readers will receive explicit guidance and resources on how to lead and exceed the assessment expectations of the common core.

Connecting the Standards, Improving Mathematical Instruction
By connecting the CCSSM to previous standards and practices, the book serves as a valuable guide for teachers and administrators in implementing the CCSSM to make mathematics education the best and most effective for all students.

How Can We Sort Our Junk? Can You Roll Your Tongue? How Expensive Is Your Name? How Tall Were the Ancestors of Laetoli? What Do Frogs Eat? These are a few of the 20 data analysis and probability investigations in Bridging the Gap
The module’s investigations are written as guides for teachers to implement straightforwardly in their K–8 classrooms. Each investigation is based on the four-step statistical process as defined by the Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education (GAISE).

Transform math instruction with effective CCSS leadershipThis professional development resource helps principals and math leaders grapple with the changes that must be addressed so that teachers can implement the practices required by the CCSS.

Using the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics With Gifted and Advanced Learners provides teachers and administrators examples and strategies to implement the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) with advanced learners at all stages of development in K–12 schools. The book describes—and demonstrates with specific examples from the CCSS—what effective differentiated activities in mathematics look like for top learners.
