Principles to Action

Principles to Actions has a new Toolkit that can be used by NCTM members for sharing with others.  Toolkit consists of a series of grade-band specific modules focused on a subset of effective teaching practices, as well as professional learning resources that support implementation of five guiding principles in Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All. Teaching and Learning: Access and Equity, Curriculum, Tools and Technology, Assessment, and Professionalism.

Principles to Action is now available in Spanish and is an excellent resource for teachers and administrators who serve students with Spanish speaking parents. De los principios a la acción: Para garantizar el éxito matemático para todos provides a great book study for schools that want to begin Professional Learning Groups with the goal of transforming an entire faculty.

Teaching and Learning Math with Common Core
NCTM and The Hunt Institute have produced a series of videos to enhance understanding of mathematics students need to succeed in college, life, and careers. Beginning in primary grades, videos address importance of developing solid foundations for algebra, as well as laying groundwork for calculus and other postsecondary mathematics. This video series addresses Standards for Mathematical Practice and examines why developing conceptual understanding requires a different approach to teaching and learning. These videos also provide rich foundations to have discussions with parents about mathematical practices!

Monthly Featured Classroom Resources
Connect with mathematics educators about tips, ideas, and online resources used in classrooms. NCTM offers monthly featured mathematics education resources from NCTM and Math Forum. Stay informed through Summing Up and social media. NCTM members can visit Classroom Resources Collaboration Center today for tomorrow's engaging mathematics lesson.
