Common Core Tool Boxinteractive software tools from NCTM for algebra and functions, geometry and trigonometry, and statistics and probability. The tools are appropriate for use with any high school mathematics curriculum and compatible with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics in terms of content and mathematical practices.

Mathematics Common Core Toolbox has links for mathematical practices and resources for implementation.

Utah is developing an integrated curriculum which beginning work can be found at http://www.mathematicsvisionproject.org/. This OER “textbook” is actually organized around the integrated Pathway,

http://illustrativemathematics.org/ The Illustrative Mathematics Project will provide guidance to states, assessment consortia, testing companies, and curriculum developers by illustrating the range and types of mathematical work that students will experience in a faithful implementation of the Common Core State Standards, and by publishing other tools that support implementation of the standards.

http://wiki-teacher.com/ Website with resources for common core standards including vocabulary, activities, and unpacked standards. This site does require you to set up a password but it is worth the information that is provided.

http://learnzillion.com/ is a web site with videos that are directly linked to the CCSSM standards. Videos are similar to Khan Academy

Another great website for CCSSM resources is the Milwaukee Mathematics Partnership (MMP) website: (http://www4.uwm.edu/Org/mmp/_resources/ccss_resources.html). Thanks to Dr. DeAnn Huinker from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for developing and sharing this information.

Textbook guidelines released for the common core mathematics standards. This blog has a link to a document that provides K-8 guidelines for text books.

http://www.nctm.org/standards/mathcommoncore/ The Mathematics Common Core Coalition works to provide expertise and advice on issues related to the effective implementation of the Common Core State Standards for School Mathematics (CCSSM).

http://nctm.org The website of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematicsprovide excellent information about good mathematics teaching, but it also includes the latest information and resources for the CCSSM. Be sure to read the president's message -- Mike includes a lot of gems on resources for the common core in his messages. Don't forget the illuminations lessons and activities for great resources as well.

http://commoncoretools.wordpress.com/ This is Bill McCallum's (one of the ccss authors) blog. He has included some excellent documents that describe the learning progressions of the K-5 domains and I believe there may be a middle school one as well. I haven't checked recently. We have found his work on the learning progressions to be very helpful.

http://illustrativemathematics.org/ When this site finally gets up and running it will be a great resource for tasks that exemplify all aspects, domains, grade levels of the common core. Jerry Moreno, a colleague of mine) is working on the data section (along with about 25 of his closest friends) and he anticipates there will be around 200 data examples posted. The site was to be launched on July 4, but I just checked and right now there is just the home page....stay tuned

http://www.ncpublicschools.org/acre/standards/new-standards/ This site has some excellent elaborations on the standards themselves including some examples and models (I like many of their fraction models). You will need to scroll down to the mathematics standards and then you can download pdf files for each grade levels.

http://www.ade.az.gov/standards/math/2010MathStandards/ this is similar to the document from North Carolina. Some people I have spoken with like this one better (I haven't studied this one as much as the NC files because I haven't had time!)

http://www.insidemathematics.org This website has some good activities by topic and grade level. Although I haven't looked at all of them, the ones I have seen are pretty good examples related to the common core.
