About

Our website provides materials and activities to support implementation of the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics. All resources have been designed based on the belief that effective mathematical learning is best achieved when students are given frequent opportunities to develop their own problem solving strategies, to pose questions, and to engage in mathematical inquiry through the use of open-ended tasks.

In addition to the materials on this website K-5 Math Teaching Resources LLC also offers research based professional development to meet school or district-based goals. Our consultants are committed to working side by side with administrators, coaches and teachers to improve the quality of math education for all students.

Math Consulting
Our Math Consultants can work with schools and districts to:

  • guide and support leaders in the creation and implementation of a clearly defined action plan for math improvement based on an analysis of your data and an audit of the math environment, practices, resources  and policies;

  • design professional development to develop an in-depth understanding of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics;

  • provide in class support for teachers through co-planning, modeling, co-teaching, and reflection sessions to establish exemplary math classroom instruction and improve student outcomes;

  • support the implementation of newly adopted math programs;

  • facilitate grade level or whole school professional development meetings and workshops to develop and deepen teachers' math content and pedagogical knowledge;

  • introduce protocols for the analysis of student work samples to assess learning and determine instructional next steps;

  • increase teacher proficiency in the use of technology as a tool to enhance student learning.

Math Institutes
Our research-based Math Institutes offer relevant, interactive learning experiences designed to improve teachers' instruction, advance students’ learning, and increase achievement in math. We will collaborate with you to identify and develop one or two day institutes aligned to your curriculum and focused on your needs. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

Teaching for Understanding: Number (K-2)
Developing Computational Fluency (Gds. 3-5)
Teaching for Understanding: Fractions (Gds. 3-5)
Using Open Ended Tasks to Differentiate Instruction (K-5)
Developing and Assessing Number Sense (Pre K-3)
Hands on Geometry (K-5)
Using Children's Literature to Teach Math
Asking Good Questions in the Math Classroom (K-5)
