Description of the Workshop:
Insight will be provided into how units, lessons and activities on the Math Forum site can be used in a Standardsbased classroom.
Introduction:
Suzanne's Mathematics Lessons are middle school activities, lesson plans, and units aligned to NCTM (and local) Standards that have been developed since 1995. As I started writing and using these lessons with middle school students I tried to follow these guidelines and include lessons that:
 are completely aligned to the seventh grade CA Mathematics Standards and NCTM Middle Grades Standards
 offer a combination of manipulatives, technology, and paper/pencil activities
 use the computer and the Internet as tools
 are of sufficient length to engage students fully
 can be presented using several strategies
Standardsaligned 7th Grade Mathematics
example: Week Six/Seven
A Primary Example:
At the Math Forum's 2000 Summer Institute Varnelle Moore and I started a collaboration to write primary mathematics lessons aligned to Pennsylvania Mathematics Standards and NCTM PreK2 Standards. Her lessons include four types of activities:
 interactive, manipulativebased projects
 technology
 paper/pencil practice
 literature connections

Other areas to explore:
Suzanne's Mathematics Lessons
Lessons originally written for middle grades students and organized by the content standards.
Teacher Exchange
The Teacher Exchange is a combination of Web Units and Lessons page and the idea of encouraging the mathematics education community to contribute their own lessons. Materials are organized first according to the NCTMdefined grade level bands, and within grade levels by the content standards.
ESCOT Problems of the Week
The ESCOT Problems of the Week were developed as part of a threeyear grant and include interactive Java applets.
Problems Library
An archive of the six Problem of the Week (Elementary, Middle, Algebra, Geometry, Discrete Math, Trig/Calc) for browsing by mathematics and story topic.
Problems of the Week
The Math Forum's Problems of the Week (PoWs) are designed to provide creative, nonroutine challenges for students in grades three through twelve. Problemsolving and mathematical communication are key elements of every problem.
