Principles & Standards for School Mathematics
Listed by grade band from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) website. View by strand:
         Number and Operations
         Data Analysis and Probability
These are examples of interactive activities that NCTM lists to help students understand the math concepts addressed in the five strands. Think about the specific mathematical topics for each. Select one to think about with the students at your table and how it might be presented in a game.

Learning Theory Resources
Funderstanding: About Learning
This page gives an overview of 12 different theories on how people learn.
New Horizons for Learning: Multiple Intelligence Theory in the Classroom
Leslie Owen Wilson's article, Why teachers are drawn to using Multiple Intelligence Theory in their classrooms, explains her views on why multiple intelligence theory is a big attraction to teachers.
Theory Into Practice
Greg Kearsley's Theory Into Practice (TIP) site is a tool intended to make learning and instructional theory more accessible to educators. The database contains brief summaries of 50 major theories of learning and instruction. These theories can also be accessed by learning domains and concepts.
Learning Theory - Models, Product, and Process
Mark K. Smith writes about: What is learning? Is it a change in behaviour or understanding? Is it a process? Here we survey some common models.
