About MathHW.net
    There are many web sites that are able to provide definitions and resources for the Common Core Standards, and some of these web sites provide online tutorials or examples that are aligned to the standards. These web sites do not provide tutorials and practice for each standard, and are not aligned to specific courses. This site is designed to be a repository for lessons (or links to lessons on other sites) that will provide a map between courses and the Common Core Standards.

    MathHW.net was launched to provide students with online practice problems aligned to their course curriculum, and resources for teachers to integrate the Standards for Mathematical Practice (using proved strategies), with the Common Core Standards for Mathematics, and their curriculum maps.

Course Resources
    For Students: This web site is intended to provide students with practice problems for each skill needed to be successful in each course, along with examples and short tutorials. Links to additional web resources will also be provided.

    For Teachers: The site is assembled using proven classroom resources submitted by teachers in Massachusetts. Teachers will find resources for the Common Core State Standards and the Standards For Mathematical Practice.
    For Parents: Resources for understanding the Standards For Mathematical Practice, parent will come to realize that the way their children experience math should be much different than the way they were taught.

Feature: Common Core Focus
    The Common Core Standards and the Standards for Mathematical Practice are packed with math terms, education and pedagogy terms, and often the terms are used with little context. The Focus of the Week concentrates on a specific topic to provide clarification or a working context of a specific concept.
Common Core Focus of the Week: Rigor
    Rigor is creating an environment in which each student is expected to learn at high levels, and each is supported so he or she can learn at high level, and each student demonstrates learning at high level. (Blackburn, 2008).

    When creating Common Core - aligned lessons and activities naturally they will be correlated with particular standards, but it also important to address (in equal proportions) the three components of rigor: conceptual understanding, procedural skill fluency, and application. When examining lessons or even PARCC questions identify the component(s) of rigor that are meant to be addressed.
