Originally created for the August 2012 NJ Association of Mathematics Teachers (AMTNJ) two-day workshop for grades 3-5, this site has expanded to embrace resources for all things common to mathematics and the CCSS.
Please share with your colleagues and provide comment so we can support you with a common knowledge, insightful skills, and a renewed pedagogy as we meet the Common Core standards in mathematics.

Lots of good resources for teachers, including their creative and colorful “I Can” Statements.
Free resources in printable format. Great for motivating students to learn, learn, learn they can really “DO” the Common Core.
Thank you to Jill McEldowney and Cathy Henry,
creators of this wonderful and generous site!
As discussed in our West Milford Administrators’ meeting today, I am uploading Navigating the Common Core – Quick Links for Mathematics. Use and share with colleagues, and let me know if we need to add anything else you find helpful.
You saw it here.
NJ Department of Education has released a ppt for this year’s assessment. If you are teaching grades 3-8, you need to watch this NJASK 2013 – NJDOE update ppt.
Basically and no matter what grade, TEACH to the CCSS. This applies even to the middle grades that are not required to be fully in place until September 2013.
Looking for a sneak peak of the new assessments from PARCC?
This AMAZING site offers examples of the online assessment tasks of the PARCC summative assessments and is a resource designed to support districts working to meet the challenge and the opportunity of the new standards. New assessment tasks are being added all the time, so bookmark this site NOW.
This site has been created through a collaboration of the Charles A. Dana Center at the University of Texas at Austin and Agile Mind with partial funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Formative Assessment: As we teach, there has to be a way to inform our instruction based on what we know students are learning. Check out the new page under Assessment that links to West Virginia’s good models of formative assessment.
