Rich Math Tasks Resources
Resources for tasks designed to assess performance in mathematics, as described in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
These practices rest on important “processes and proficiencies” with longstanding importance in mathematics education. The first of these are the NCTM process standards of problem solving, reasoning and proof, communication, representation, and connections. The second are the strands of mathematical proficiency specified in the National Research Council's report Adding It Up: adaptive reasoning, strategic competence, conceptual understanding (comprehension of mathematical concepts, operations and relations), procedural fluency (skill in carrying out procedures flexibly, accurately, efficiently and appropriately), and productive disposition (habitual inclination to see mathematics as sensible, useful, and worthwhile, coupled with a belief in diligence and one's own efficacy).

Asking students to choose their own path and justify it.
Dan Meyer taught high school math to students who didn’t like high school math. “I have advocated for better math instruction here and on CNN, Good Morning America, Everyday with Rachel Ray, and TED.com. I currently study math education at Stanford University, speak internationally, and work with textbook publishers, helping them move from education’s print past to its digital future. I was named one of Tech & Learning’s 30 Leaders of the Future and an Apple Distinguished Educator.”
The MVP way of learning mathematics requires much of you, the student.

Smarter Balanced sample items illustrate the rigor and complexity of the English language arts/literacy and mathematics items and performance tasks students will encounter on the Consortium’s next-generation assessments.
Welcome to the ORC Stella website. The core of this collection is a library of more than 600 non-routine mathematics problems known as Stella's Stunners to be launched set by set over the coming months. The problems range from simple visual problems, requiring no specific mathematical background, to problems that use the content of Pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II and Trigonometry, up through Pre-Calculus
Resources for preparing to implement both the Standards for Mathematical Practice and the Standards for Mathematical Content for all grade levels.
