Teachers will find the Lessons and Resources area especially useful. You can search by grade, topic, professional development, best practices. Check out the monthly tips area for up-to-date information for math education. There is a family corner for at-home help.
NCTM’s Navigations series, journals, and other resources assist teachers in bringing the Standards to life in the classroom.
Curriculum Focal Points, published in 2006, identifies three important topics at each grade level pre-K–8, and is the next step in implementing the Standards.
Core Math Tools is a downloadable suite of interactive software tools 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.

NCTM Foundational Priorities
Access and Equity: Advance knowledge about, and infuse in every aspect of mathematics education, a culture of equity where everyone has access to and is empowered by the opportunities mathematics affords.
Advocacy: Engage in public and political advocacy to focus policymakers and education decision makers on improving learning and teaching mathematics.
Curriculum, instruction, and assessment: Provide guidance and resources for developing and implementing mathematics curriculum, instruction, and assessment that are coherent, focused, well-articulated, and consistent with research in the field, and focused on increasing student learning.
Professional Development: Provide professional development to all stakeholders to help ensure all students receive the highest quality mathematics education.
Research: Ensure that sound research is integrated into all activities of the Council.
Technology: Promote strategic use of technology to advance mathematical reasoning, sense making, problem solving, and communication.
