Common Core Web Resource






Progressions for the Common Core in Mathematics:
The authors of the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics released draft papers that provide in-depth discussion of the domain progressions across grades, highlight connections across domains, elaborate on the learning expectations for students, and provide instructional suggestions.

The grade level documents provide “Explanations and Examples” for each standard.


Hawaii: h ttp://
The site includes interpretative guides, grade band domain progressions, and other documents. The grade level Interpretative Guides respond to the prompt, “This means that the student can...” for each standard.


This site contains prioritized standards, learning progression organizers, and clarification documents, as well as formative assessment probes, universal screeners, and interventions.


Kansas Association Teachers of Mathematics -

Common Core Flip Books -


The site provides a useful organization to access components of the Common Core and includes grade band domain progression documents.


This provides Exploration Activities to examine the focus, coherence, clarity and rigor of the common core standards and includes presentation slides, facilitator notes, and handouts.


New York State:


North Carolina:
The grade level “Unpacked Content” documents include examples and discussion of each standard in response to the question, “What do these standards mean a child will know and be able to do?”


The grade level model curriculum guides include content elaborations, student learning expectations, instructional strategies, and common student misconceptions.


This site contains some short video clips, posters, grade band overviews of domains and clusters, and other documents.

Milwaukee Mathematics Partnership:



MARS (Mathematics Assessment Project)

Tools for formative and summative assessment that make knowledge and reasoning visible, and help teachers to guide students in how to improve, and monitor their progress. Classroom Challenges: lessons for formative assessment, some focused on developing math concepts, others on non-routine problem solving.

Professional Development Modules: to help teachers with the new pedagogical challenges that formative assessment presents.

Summative Assessment Task Collection: to illustrate the range of performance goals required by CCSSM.

Prototype Summative Tests: designed to help teachers and students monitor their progress, these tests provide a model for examinations that may replace or complement current US tests.


PARCC Consortium:
The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a consortium of 24 states developing a common set of assessments in English and mathematics aligned to the common core standards.

Dana Center at UT Austin -

This site offers examples of the types of innovative assessment tasks that reflect the direction of the PARCC summative assessments.


SMARTER Balance Assessment Consortium (SBAC):
The SMARTER Balance Assessment Consortium (SBAC) is a consortium of 30 states, including Wisconsin, that are collaboratively developing a student assessment system aligned to the common core standards.



Map of State Adoption:
This site shows which states have adopted the Common Core State Standards.
