Below is a list of resources for educators that we really love and find value in. We hope you find them helpful!
Discover concrete and practical methods to cultivate students’ mathematical thinking. The integration of research and an inviting tone makes it the sought-after book it has become. Many schools we work with have studied it in teacher book clubs. We love that the strategies provided are immediately applicable, prompting teachers to jump into implementation with enthusiasm!
When you see these five practices being implemented in a math classroom, it is truly a beautiful thing. Read it for the first time, or again with colleagues. Each read provides new and useful information to move the math classroom towards a place where students are met where they are, where they are sharing their thinking and making valuable connections.
The site of all sites. The Coherence Map from Achieve the Core provides so much information about the standards! Not only does it show the connections between standards, but it also provides illustrative tasks and language from the Progressions Documents to help all educators better understand the expectations of all math standards K–12.
Including the Desmos calculator to this list of recommendations may seem obvious since those who know and use this tool absolutely love it. We’re still surprised by how many math educators haven’t found this amazing tool yet. If you are one of them…you are welcome.
Wondering what it looks like for a student to be meeting grade-level standards? The Math Milestone grids provide us with a thoughtful, gorgeously depicted answer to that question. While the tasks are fantastic, the teacher notes are a work of art and, we predict, will soon be a basis for much professional learning in K–8 over the next few years.
Fabulous resource for teachers and those who support teachers who are interested in reflecting on their actions, beliefs, and values in an effort to disrupt racism in their system.
Created during the pandemic, these slides are just beautiful. They support students talking about mathematics across K–5 using the same visual—so many use cases!
