Utah is also a Common Core state that has some helpful instructional resources.  Here are some direct links to the various resources from Utah.

 

Emergent Math Curriculum Maps

This site includes curriculum maps for the various grade levels and high school courses that are aligned to the common core math standards.  The maps also have links to specific lessons that are focused on problem-based learning.  Very helpful resource.

 

Learn Zillion

This site contains very sound instructional lessons that teach the 2-8 math standards using video and technology.  To navigate to your grade level, click the grade level and then the lesson folder under the standard you are looking to teach.  This can also be used as a powerful tutorial resource for students who need remediation.

 

Virtual Nerd

This is a video-based tutorial site for mathematics.  You can search for short video tutorials by topic for grade 6-12.

 

Eureka Math

Eureka math is a complete, free math curriculum aligned to the common core standards for mathematics.  It has been evaluated and rated as one of the top math curriculum by edreports.org.  Below are some great resources that are aligned directly to Eureka math.

Parent Resources – one challenge to Eureka math is that it teaches math differently than most parents learned math.  Therefore, parent resources and help are critical in implementing Eureka math.  Here is a site created by Dave Shellhaas when he was at Piqua City Schools.

Teacher Resources – the links below are to specific grade level resources aligned to Eureka math.

 

Zearn

Zearn is a free online math resource that is totally aligned to the modules and lessons in the Eureka math curriculum.  It is free but you must sign up and register to get access to the program.  This is a powerful online resource.  At this point the site only includes resources for grades 2,3, and 4.  5th grade is supposed to be added in the future, so keep checking back.

g(Math) – Google Docs add-on

It’s quick and easy to create equations, graphs, stats displays and math quizzes to insert in Google Docs or Sheets. Now students at all levels – and their teachers – can include mathematical formulas and equations, graphs and statistical displays

 

Desmos

Desmos can be used on any computer or tablet, completely free of charge, and does not even require a download. It seamlessly creates beautiful visual representations and animations, and it allows users to save and share graphs they’ve created. Desmos makes complex math — whether theoretical or applied — fun, interactive, and accessible.

 

GeoGebra

A geometry package providing for both graphical and algebraic input. Includes the program and worksheets for download, as well as screenshots.

Mathematics Assessment Project (MAP)

This site contains rich resources to teach 6-12 mathematics.  The resources include lessons/challenges, assessments/tasks, and PD modules.

  • Summative tests or tasks exemplify the performance targets that the standards imply. The tests show the kinds of performance that students in rich math programs will achieve, with the range and balance that the standards describe. The tasks, with the associated guidance, equip teachers to monitor overall progress in their students’ mathematics.
  • Classroom Challenges are lessons that support teachers in formative assessment. They both reveal and develop students’ understanding of key mathematical ideas and applications. These lessons enable teachers and students to monitor in more detail their progress towards the targets of the standards. They assay students’ understanding of important concepts and problem solving performance and help teachers and their students to work effectively together to move each student’s mathematical reasoning forward.
  • Professional development modules will help teachers with the pedagogical and mathematical challenges that this approach involves. Built around the Classroom Challenges, these modules are designed for use by groups of teachers, working together in a supportive school to improve the effectiveness of their program.
