Achieve the Core"This website is full of free content designed to help educators understand and implement the Common Core State Standards. It includes practical tools designed to help students and teachers see their hard work deliver results. achievethecore.org was created in the spirit of collaboration. Please steal these tools and share them with others."  Edutopia Our Foundation is dedicated to transforming K12 education so that all students can acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to thrive in their studies, careers, and adult lives. Founded by innovative and awardwinning filmmaker George Lucas in 1991, we take a strategic approach to improving K12 education through two distinct areas of focus: Edutopia and Lucas Education Research. 
Mathematics Assessment Program"The Mathematics Assessment Program aims to bring to life the Common Core State Standards in a way that will help teachers and their students turn their aspirations for achieving them into classroom realities. The materials from this project will exemplify the CCSSM in explicit downtoearth performance terms." 
Math Routines to Support Mathematical Reasoning 
Math For Love We are Dan Finkel and Katherine Cook, a husband and wife team devoted to transforming how math is taught and learned. We develop math games and curriculum, including tons of free lesson plans that we give away here. We train teachers and produce professional learning materials. And we write puzzles, produce mathart shows, and do whatever we can to show people how playful, beautiful, and lifechanging mathematics can be. 
Clothes Line Math Clotheslines become interactive number lines. Students are able to manipulate cards to show proportional reasoning, precision, equality between numbers, and magnitude. The clothesline builds students’ number sense. It’s a routine that can work from kindergarten through high school.

Math Blogs 
Currently a doctoral candidate in mathematics education at Stanford University, Dan Meyer is interested in making perplexity accessible to students. He has developed a bank of what he calls "threeact" problems to have kids doing some actual problem solving. His video, Math Class Needs a Makeover, is a good place to begin if you're new to Dan's work.  Overthinking My Teaching Christopher Danielson teaches future elementary school teachers mathematics at Normandale Community College in Bloomington, Minnesota. He is particularly interested in children's mathematical development. You should also check out his new blog, Talking Math With Your Kids, where he chronicles conversations with his own children, Tabitha and Griffin.
