Math Planning Resources Available
In order to support teachers in "working together on the right work," Math Teacher Leader Cadre members have worked collaboratively to create and post a suggested pacing guide, common formative assessments, a model lesson, and other instructional resources in Blackboard. These can be found in the TPSS Resources class under the “Math” tab.If you would like more information on the aforementioned resources as well as future opportunities to assist in extending our library of resources, you are encouraged to attend an overview of our current offerings during our district professional development day.

Mathematics Design Collaborative
What is the Math Design Collaborative?
The Math Design Collaborative (MDC) provides teachers with formative assessment lessons and professional development so they can use evidence of learning to adapt teaching, minute to minute and day to day.
Central to MDC are sets of Formative Assessment Lessons (FALs). Each lesson is research-based, aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and fit within CCSS-aligned courses of study. The FALs represent a major innovation in teaching and learning math. Their hybrid model of assessment and instruction is designed for medium-cycle formative assessment – the type that teachers can use every two weeks.
MDC provides teachers with tools and individual coaching to enable teachers to respond to the instructional shifts necessary with the CCSS.
- Students draw upon their real world experience to make sense of mathematics and solve problems.
- Students use dialogue and conversation to explore mathematical thinking.
- Students use place value and mathematical properties and relationships to compute with flexibility, accuracy, and efficiency.
- Students use concrete materials, drawings, graphs, and symbols to understand and represent mathematical ideas.
- Students build confidence and experience in choosing tools and strategies to make sense of and solve problems.
Hello Math Design Collaborativefriends and partners,
As our work has grown togetherwe have heard from a number of you that it would be helpful to have aone-stop-shop to find resources and supports for the Math Design Collaborative(MDC). We have been working for some time to have a place where we canhouse and share all our resources that have been developed by our partners inthe MDC and it is finally ready to launch. If you click on the linksbelow you will find a public website that can be shared where we are housingall our resources related to MDC. These are all located on one websitebut I thought it would be easier to give you the two direct links so that youcould find the resources more easily.
This first link is to a pagewhere you can find a number of resources, videos, student work samples andprofessional development modules that can support your work in implementing theformative assessment lessons. There are also sample course outlines thatshow how you can situate this work in standard middle and high school mathcourses.
This second link goes to a pagewhere you can find links to a number of other resources related to MDC as wellas LDC. Many of the projects that members of our MDC partner networkshave developed can be found on this page. There are a number of resourcesso make sure to scroll through all the pages.

Harcourt Math Correlation
This document, Harcourt-GM-Corr-corrected.pdf, is a correlation of the Harcourt Math book and the new Common Core State Standards. It specifically lists which lessons need to be skipped and which standards need to supplemented with the Harcourt OnCore worksheets or other materials.

The FASTT Math intervention program uses the research-validated FASTT system (Fluency and Automaticity through Systematic Teaching with Technology) to help all students develop fluency with basic math facts. FASTT Math assesses all students to uncover fluency gaps and to establish a baseline of fluency for each student. Then, FASTT Math automatically differentiates instruction in customized, 10-minute daily sessions.
