Mathematics Benchmarks, Grades K12
http://www.utdanacenter.org/k12mathbenchmarks/
The American Diploma Project benchmarks for K12 detail the
content and skills students need to master throughout their
schooling, and which they need for success in postsecondary
education and the workplace. Model course sequences and
sample tasks help educators see how the benchmarks can be
implemented in mathematics classrooms.
Developed by the Charles A. Dana Center at the University of
Texas at Austin, in partnership with Achieve, Inc.
Discovering Polygons and Polyhedra
http://internal.maths.adelaide.edu.au/people/pscott/polyhedra/
A page designed to encourage interactive exploration of
polygons and polyhedra, and appreciation of their beauty. The
site contains diagrams and applets, and invites readers to
explore and find answers for themselves.
