IAS/PCMI: Advancing a Common Curriculum in Mathematics by Herb Clemens
From the Spring 2012 Issue
Common Core State Standards Initatiative: The Standards: Mathematics
These Standards define what students should understand and be able to do in their study of mathematics.
CCSS: Standards for Mathematical Practice
The Standards for Mathematical Practice describe varieties of expertise that mathematics educators at all levels should seek to develop in their students.
Conference Board of Mathematical Sciences
The Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences (CBMS) is an umbrella organization consisting of sixteen professional societies all of which have as one of their primary objectives the increase or diffusion of knowledge in one or more of the mathematical sciences. Its purpose is to promote understanding and cooperation among these national organizations so that they work together and support each other in their efforts to promote research, improve education, and expand the uses of mathematics.
Institute for Mathematics & Education
The Institute for Mathematics & Education supports local, national, and international projects in mathematics education that focus on both the mathematics and the students, can be applied to current needs, build on existing knowledge, and are grounded in the work of educators.
Illustrative Mathematics
Illustrative Mathematics provides guidance to states, assessment consortia, testing companies, and curriculum developers by illustrating the range and types of mathematical work that students experience in a faithful implementation of the Common Core State Standards, and by publishing other tools that support implementation of the standards.
The Algebra Project
The Algebra Project, Inc. is a 501 (c) (3) national, nonprofit organization that uses mathematics as an organizing tool to ensure quality public school education for every child in America. We believe that every child has a right to a quality education to succeed in this technology-based society and to exercise full citizenship. We achieve this by using best educational research and practices, and building coalitions to create systemic changes.
