Make Math Real
It’s what we believe.
If we connect the real world with deep mathematical experiences, we provide the best opportunities for students to truly master mathematics.
In order to make that happen, this site is dedicated to providing teachers the professional development and curriculum they need in order to be an effective teacher of mathematics.
Our work is built from the ground up on Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM).
Our research-based Maps show teachers how to arrange the standards into units of study, sections, and lessons in order to provide a coherent, focused, and rigorous curriculum for students. Within our Maps, we provide teacher guidance, example problems, and exit tickets so that teachers can create high-quality lesson plans.
Our Curriculum Maps are better than a textbook because we continually update them! In fact, think of our Curriculum Maps as the future of a teacher’s edition textbook!
Our student tasks are real-world problems that provide a deep mathematical experience for students. Our tasks are built directly from CCSSM and are relevant to the lives of students. We are always adding more tasks and updating old tasks to keep them interesting to today’s students!
Our tasks are great for teaching students to think critically as well as allowing students to demonstrate the Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice!
