http://maccss.ncdpi.wikispaces.net/home This link provides updated versions of the old “Week by Week” documents from the NC Department of Public Instruction. The lessons are now aligned with the Common Core and the eight Math Practices. The link takes you to the Math Wiki. On the left, click on Elementary or Middle, and then go to a specific grade. Look for “Lessons for Learning”.

http://thinkingblocks.com/ Thinking Blocks is a suite of learning tools designed to help students solve math word problems accurately and efficiently. Using brightly colored blocks, students model mathematical relationships and identify known and unknown quantities. The model provides students with a powerful image that organizes information and simplifies the problem solving process. By modeling increasingly complex word problems, students develop strong reasoning skills which will facilitate the transition from arithmetic to algebra.

http://nsdl.org/search/results?n=10&s=0&verb=Search&include_collection[]=ncs-NSDL-COLLECTION-000-003-112-088 This website allows you to search the subject and grade level to see Common Core lessons shared by other teachers.

http://www.phschool.com/atschool/cmp2/active_math/index.html This website has interactive activities. It is from the makers of CMP2 but is free to anyone to use.

http://learnzillion.com/-There are videos that go along with each standard. You can set up your own account or use your Google (gmail) account. You could use these to flip the classroom or let the students use the videos as review. Best of all, it’s free.

http://www.webmath.com/ Resources to look through organized by topic.

http://www.ixl.com/standards/common-core/math Online question bank aligned with the Common Core standards broken down by grade level and then topic. If students get the problem wrong, the computer offers an explanation. There are a limited number of questions you can do for free.
