Discovering Lessons for the Common Core State Standards in Grades 6-8 (Download)
This highly useful book, authored by leading teacher educators, provides ready-made alignment to high-quality, peer-reviewed, engaging activities reviewed by NCTM members that they can use with their K–12 students.
Common Core Mathematics in a PLC at Work, Grades K-2
How do you help your students demonstrate mathematical proficiency toward the learning expectations of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)? This teacher guide illustrates how to sustain successful implementation of the CCSS for mathematics for grades K–2. Discover what students should learn and how they should learn it at each grade level, including insight into prekindergarten early childhood readiness expectations for the K–2 standards, as well as the unique Counting and Cardinality standards for kindergarten.

Connecting the NCTM Process Standards and the CCSSM Practices
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.
Developing Essential Understanding of Expressions, Equations, and Functions for Teaching Mathematics in Grades 6-8
This book focuses on essential knowledge for teachers about expressions, equations, and functions. It is organized around five big ideas, supported by multiple smaller, interconnected ideas—essential understandings.Taking you beyond a simple introduction to expressions, equations, and functions, the book will broaden and deepen your mathematical understanding of one of the most challenging topics for students—and teachers. It will help you engage your students, anticipate their perplexities, avoid pitfalls, and dispel misconceptions. You will also learn to develop appropriate tasks, techniques, and tools for assessing students' understanding of the topic.

Implementing the Common Core State Standards through Mathematical Problem Solving: Kindergarten-Grade 2
Connect the Process of Problem Solving with the Content of the Common Core Mathematics educators have long worked to help students to develop problem-solving skills. More recently, they have sought to provide students with the knowledge in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). This volume is the second in a series from NCTM that equips classroom teachers with targeted, highly effective problems for achieving both goals at once. For every mathematics educator, the books in this series will illuminate a crucial link between problem solving and the Common Core State Standards.
Mathematics Formative Assessment: 75 Practical Strategies for Linking Assessment, Instruction, and Learning
Award-winning author Page Keeley and mathematics expert Cheryl Rose Tobey apply the successful format of Keeley’s best-selling Science Formative Assessment to mathematics. They provide 75 formative assessment strategies and show teachers how to use them to inform instructional planning and better meet the needs of all students. Research shows that formative assessment has the power to significantly improve learning, and its many benefits include: Copublished with Corwin
Reasoning and Sense-Making Problems and Activities for Grades 5-8
This book is a collection of the best of NCTM's Addenda series, grades 5-8 and includes problems and examples that represent critical content for today’s middle school curriculum. The problems focus on the four key practices: • Roles of representation • Generalization • Problem solving • Connections in mathematics learning and teaching This book has More4U, which includes additional resources online. Download activities, classroom materials, and blackline masters. Look inside book for access code.
Uncomplicating Fractions to Meet Common Core Standards in Math, K-7
This accessible book provides math teachers with support for differentiated instruction. Math coaches can use it to assist teachers with their transition to the Common Core State Standards. All teachers will find it helpful to see the mathematical fraction learning that precedes and follows the grades that they teach. It is also an excellent text for preservice teachers as they prepare themselves and their students to understand and teach math with a deep level of understanding.

Using Classroom Assessment to Improve Student Learning: Math Problems Aligned with NCTM and Common Core State Standards
Linking assessment to everday classroom instruction requires a shift in both thinking and practice. For many, the term assessment simply means grade. Using Classroom Assessment to Improve Student Learning shows how teachers can move away from using tests, letter or numerical grades, or passing or failing as evidence of student learning to creating a rich classroom environment that is conducive to effective formative assessment.
GAISEing into the Common Core of Statistics
Two recent sets of guidelines that intersect statistics and complement each other can be used to plot an orderly progression of study.
