Monthly Featured Resource

  • September 2020 

    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.

    See It, Move It, Grasp It: Math with Virtual Manipulatives (Pre K-2)  
    Learn about some amazing online manipulatives that will help your students visualize mathematical concepts.

    Create an Address Number (3-5)  
    Students will find a three-digit address for a building according to certain rules. Through guidance and working together, students will discover that making a list is more efficient than random guessing.

    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.

    Exploring Transformations

    Students will explore properties of transformations to discover patterns through generalizations, and developing rules.

    High School (9-12)

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

    Creativity and Storytelling in Mathematics Lessons                                                
    September 25th is Math Story Telling Day! In this webinar, educators explore how storytelling and real-life applications can make the content more accessible and engaging, and how creativity and problem-solving can show students the great power and surprising beauty of mathematics

    As you explore MyNCTM, be sure to check out the  ElementaryMiddle, and  High School resource libraries. There you will find some of NCTM's best resources, organized by grade level and by key concept within each grade level. You'll find resources from Illuminations, journal articles that blend research with classroom activities and lessons, games from Calculation Nation, and more! If you find a resource you might use in your classroom, click to "Favorite" it and you'll always be able to find it on your profile page (under My Contributions). We'll also use those Favorites to help us feature and share the most popular resources. And if you have another favorite resource, whether it's from NCTM, something you created, or a link to share from another source, you can add it to the library as well, and it might just show up in our Featured Resources one day!

    Check out the #NCTMresources hashtag on Twitter to follow along as we share and discuss these and other NCTM classroom resources.
