Math Toolkit – Websites
EngageNY.org is an evolving, collaborative website for New York State educators to find resources for implementing the Regents Reform Agenda. The site contains resources relating to the following topics: Common Core standards, data driven instruction, and teacher/leader effectiveness. It was designed by the New York State Education Department specifically for teachers, principals/administrators, and network teams.
Common Core State Standards Initiative
The National Common Core Standards website contains information about the development of the standards. The site contains all of the Common Core Standards in PDF format.
New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards for Math
Adopted in January 2011 by the New York State Board of Regents, this document includes all of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in Math, plus the New York- recommended additions. All of the New York State Math Common Core Workgroup’s recommended additions are included within this document, highlighted in yellow under the related domain.
Common Core in Mathematics: Overview from EngageNY
This 14-minute video provides an overview of the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics. NYS Commissioner of Education John B. King Jr. and contributing author David Coleman discuss the background of the Common Core State Standards, their value in the state, the principles of their development, and the changes required of schools during this transition.
Tools for the Common Core
Tools for the Common Core publishes updates and reports on projects that support the implementation of the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics.
Illustrative Mathematics provides guidance to states, assessment consortia, testing companies, and curriculum developers by illustrating the range and types of mathematical work that students experience in a faithful implementation of the Common Core State Standards, and by publishing other tools that support implementation of the standards.
Improving Mathematical Problem Solving in Grades 4 Through 8
The goal of this practice guide is to offer educators specific, evidence-based recommendations
that address the challenge of improving mathematical problem solving in grades 4 through 8.
The guide provides practical, clear information on critical topics related to improving mathematical
problem solving and is based on the best available evidence as judged by the authors.
