Math Lessons - Looking to understand a subject better, or maybe you don't understand what your textbook is trying to tell you? We have a collection of algebra and geometry lessons that you can view online right now. If the site does not have what you are looking for, there are other sites referenced here that may help you out.
Select Math
This is a really good web site that matches the Boston math curriculum to online resources, mapped to the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks. Many of the links referenced in this project are also listed in this page.
The National Library of Virtual Manipulatives
This is a great collection of virtual manipulatives. Many of these ideas are computer adaptations of classroom activities, but it can also work the other way around. You can use this as a source of ideas of activities that you can do off-line. The site is well organized and free. Copies of the site are available for purchase on CD.
NCTM
There are online activities as well as things you can download (Excel workbooks) and adapt. There are indexes and links to other sites and it is worth a look. Some of the links from Select Math go to the NCTM web site.

Parent Resources

  • The Council of the Great City Schools
    Parent Roadmaps to the Common Core Standards- Mathematics
    The Council of the Great City Schools' parent roadmaps in mathematics provide guidance to parents about what their children will be learning and how they can support that learning in grades K-8. These parent roadmaps for each grade level also provide three-year snapshots showing how selected standards progress from year to year so that students will be college and career ready upon their graduation from high school.

  • There are a lot of opinions and publications about the role of the Gates Foundation to promote Common Core Standards, The Council of the Great City Schools has received money from the foundation. There is a view that the Common Core Standards are being implemented without any supporting data, without any field testing, without any parent input, legislature support, and with little input from experienced educators that are not on the payroll of publishers or those pushing the privatization of the country's education system. Parents are encouraged to conduct their own research on how there local school district has determined whether to adopt the Common Core Standards. It is also worth investigating how a national student database will be used and the privacy of students protected or exploited.
