New CSDE MATH LISTSERV: The purpose of this listserv is to keep educators informed of professional learning opportunities and to provide general updates about math education. To subscribe to this listserv please contact Jennifer Michalek at
Connecticut Model Curriculum
The curriculum is aligned with the Connecticut Core standards for Mathematics, both the Content Standards and the Standards for Mathematical Practice. It is based on the big ideas, conceptual understandings, real world applications, hands-on experiences gathering data, and appropriate uses of technology.

Resources
Materials found here will enhance your understanding of the standards. You will also find useful materials for the classroom.

Math Science Partnership Grant
The MSP Program through partnerships with institutes of education and high-need districts provide intensive, content-rich professional development to teachers and other educators, with the goal of improving classroom instructions and, ultimately, student achievement in math and science.

Bridges Practice s Among CT Math Educators
Bridging Math Practices is a project funded by the State Department of Education through a Math-Science Partnership Grant. This grant was designed to enhance participants understanding of mathematical argumentation as well as their ability to support student participation in mathematical argumentation and assess the quality of their arguments. Products and materials from this grant are:

Dream Team Instructional Cycle Guides
The Connecticut Dream Team mathematics work created materials to support instructional cycles that meet the needs of all learners. These “Instructional Cycle Guides” are designed to provide teachers with steps and materials needed to elicit student understandings and misunderstandings of a targeted concept, analyze the resulting student work, and implement a follow-up lesson that reengages students in the concept and provides opportunities for extra support and/or extension.

The following materials were developed by CT Dream Team members and will be utilized during the 2014 TeachFest.

Since the materials are not considered to be complete units of study or comprehensive lesson plans, they have not been rated using the Connecticut rating system that is based on the EQuIP rubrics.
