Stem  Math  Frameworks
It is important to view these frameworks in color. The Common Core State Standards appear in black and the Essential Skills and Knowledge added by Maryland educators appear in red.

In June, 2010, the Maryland State Board of Education adopted the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. Since that time, educators from around the state have met to determine the best way for Maryland teachers to transition from the existing State Curriculum to the Common Core State Standards. The units of study and draft frameworks that follow are the result of this work.
Units of Study

Units of study aligned with the new frameworks have been developed by Maryland educators and shared in the summer academies. Lessons have been aligned with the CCSS.

Number and Operations
In grades 6 – 8, all students should:
Understand numbers, ways of representing numbers, relationships among numbers, and number systems
Understand meaning of operations and how they relate to one another
Compute fluently and make reasonable estimates

You've probably heard this lament many times in class: "But when am I ever going to use this in real life?"

These videos and support materials will give you another weapon in your answer arsenal. In the videos, students meet people whose everyday, real life includes just the kind of mathematics they explore in Math by Design. Use the Discussion Questions and Related Practice resources to extend and enrich your students’ video watching experience!
MathActive lessons are Flash animated math modules designed for grades K-12. Each module features content that touches a geometry performance objective from the Arizona Academic Standards for mathematics.

MathActive lessons were built around educator mathematical expertise and pedagogy. Using Backward Design, each module was created to target a specific geometry performance objective. From the educator-created lesson plan, an ASU graphic student animated the lesson in Flash. Many of the modules are created with English, Spanish and Navajo narration. MathActive has been widely used for remediation, extension activities and the introduction of concepts.

Math  By Design

The SMILE program was designed to enhance the elementary and high school learning of Science and Mathematics through the use of the phenomenological approach. For a brief course description/syllabus, click here. For a brief history of the course, click here.
  Between 1986 and 1997 each summer session participant was asked to create and publish a single concept lesson plan. These lesson plans include the materials needed, a suggested strategy and expected outcomes. There are currently almost 900 of these lesson plans available (see subject indices below). In addition, starting in 1997 the participants in the academic year program have been asked to present a brief single concept lesson or idea. Summaries of the academic year lessons are at academic year notes. All of these lessons are available in the following formats:

A CD-ROM with all of the lessons (summer and academic year) and links from both this and the SMART web sites for $15.00US to a US address ($20US outside the United States). Contact Roy Coleman at Morgan Park High School for availability.
Listings by subject are available by linking to any of the following:

The math vocabulary cards
 in this file match the Common Core, the math curriculum adopted by the Utah State Board of Education, August 2010. The cards are arranged alphabetically.
Each card has three sections.
o Section 1 is only the word. This is to be used as a visual aid in
spelling and pronunciation. It is also used when students are writing
their own “kid-friendly” definition and drawing their own graphic.
o Section 2 has the word and a graphic. This graphic is available to be used as a model by the teacher.
o Section 3 has the word, a graphic, and a definition. This is to be used for the Word Wall in the classroom. For more information on using a Word Wall for Daily Review – see “Vocabulary – Word Wall Ideas” on this website.
These cards are designed to help all students with math content vocabulary,including ELL, Gifted and Talented, Special Education, and Regular Education students
