The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) is proud to announce MOTO, a new Response to Intervention (RtI) digital series for kindergarten through second grade. Available for any web browser, and most tablets and mobile devices, MOTO for K–2 comprises 7 student books and a teacher website—Teacher Connect that is available exclusively through NCTM’s website. 

Developed specifically for a digital environment, MOTO encourages active learning through interactive games, puzzles, songs, tasks, videos, and stories.  Working along with the MOTO family of characters, students learn mathematics by doing. The entire series is designed to meet and support the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics.

In each student book, four math friends (Addison, Mina, Split, and Multiplex), practice such essential skills as counting, telling time, adding and subtracting, sorting data, and much more.

Every page offers mathematical enrichment: 

  • Fun mathematical games that build and reinforce K-2 concepts and skills
  • MOTO family characters portraying computational math symbols
  • Interactive stories that engage and involve each child while teaching and demonstrating key mathematical concepts
  • Technology that allows students to practice key skills, put answers directly on the page, and get gentle but instant feedback to those answers

  • Track the progress of each student, comment on his or her work, and share those comments with the student
  • Access effective RtI instructional strategies and tasks that connect math students who struggle with tools to get them back on track
  • Connect each chapter of each book to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics
  • Take advantage of extensive teacher resources, such as problem extensions, high-order questions, instructional techniques, and downloadable activity sheets for the classroom
  • Gain entry to Teacher Notes for every page of the student book (visible only in the teacher edition) to learn how to get the most out of each page and task

iBookavailable from iBooks or the “Books” section of iTunes. Search for National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, MOTO, or the title of the book you’d like to purchase. If you don’t already have iTunes on your device, you can download it at www.iTunes.com. This version uses the finger-touch response system.

Android—available on Google Play, search for NCTM or the title of the book you’d like to purchase. If you don’t have Google Play on your device, you can download it at www.googleplay.com. This version uses the finger-touch response system.

Web-based—available from NCTM.org, www.nctm.org/catalog, search for MOTO. This version uses the mouse to navigate and respond but the content is exactly the same as any other version.

  

If you just want to purchase one of the books, stop here.

If, however, you want to track your students' progress, see the Teacher Notes in each book, correlate the chapters to the Common Core State Standards--Mathematics, or access even more activities, you'll need Teacher Connect, so follow Steps 3 and 4...

Step 3

Purchase Teacher Connect. 

If you’re a teacher who would like to use the MOTO series in your classroom, you will need Teacher Connect. Teacher Connect allows you to buy teacher and student codes, see your students' answers, correlate the lessons to CCSSM, and get additional classroom activities. You can use this one purchase for all 7 books. However, because you get a free teacher code with your original purchase, begin by simply choosing the Teacher Connect option with the title of the book you already own. Here are the links for each Teacher Connect on the NCTM catalog: 

Once you own Teacher Connect, you’ll be able to purchase teacher codes for any of the other books you own to unlock the Teacher Notes in each title. Teacher codes are book specific but not platform specific, so you'll need to purchase the teacher code that corresponds to the book.

Please note that the HTML versions are best viewed through Chrome, Safari, Firefox, or IE v10.  

Step 4 

Purchase Student Codes.

Student codes can be purchased only through Teacher Connect. Student codes are student-specific but not book-specific; once you purchase a student code that code will work in any of the 7 books. That means that you can assign one code to one student and see his or her work for all 7 books on Teacher Connect. If you’ve purchased Teacher Connect, you’ll find a tab on the navigation bar of the home page that says “Purchase Codes,” which lists all available codes.
