Monthly Featured Resource

  • March 2021

    Each month, NCTM provides its members with one highlighted classroom resource per grade band. These resources are updated during the first week of every month.

    Elementary (K-5)

    For each grade level, Kindergarten through 5th grade, you will find resources focused on the major work of each grade level.

    Who's in the Family (Pre K-2)    
    Students make connections between addition and subtraction to understand Who's in the Family?

    Petals Around the Rose (3-5)    
    In observing the rolls of five die, students are encouraged to deduce the "number of petals on the rose". By keeping an organized list of rolls and number of petals, students will use discourse to discover the pattern to reveal the answer. This task is more about the process than the final answer.

    Middle School (6-8)

    For each grade level, 6th through 8th grade, you will find resources focused on the major work of each grade level. 

    Mathematics as Communication 
    In this lesson that addresses functions in a practical way, students will see real life videos and determine how to produce this image on a graph. They will have to decide how these difference life scenarios should be graphically displayed over time.

    High School (9-12)

    The high school library is divided into content areas: Algebra and Functions, Probability and Statistics, Geometry, and Number and Operations. 

    Static Nim
    Static Nim is a one-pile game between two players. In this lesson, students will learn that solving a game means satisfying properties and lots more!
