Lesson Plans by the Chicago Lesson Study Group


This Lesson Plan Library organizes dozens of math lessons and units for grades 3-9, all aligned to the Common Core Standards.

The Chicago Lesson Study Group invites teachers to rate and comment on these resources; and to join its forum to learn about, and practice, lesson study as a way to steadily improve student learning.

Math teacher and researcher Tom O'Brien offers resources and activities through this site, with planned updates each month to add more materials. These include books published by the UK's Association of Teachers of Mathematics--some out of print --now downloadable and available for purchase. Excerpts from the e-books are available free, as well as three articles by O'Brien and colleagues. O'Brien recommends software as well, some of which is available free of charge.
