The ASD mathematics team believes that quality education is deserved by all students, regardless of demographics, and commit to setting students on the path to success through academically challenging and supportive environments.

Vision

To develop mathematically proficient students, fostering an appreciation for mathematics and critical thinking while preparing them to compete globally and make positive contributions to their communities.

Mission

To provide robust, strategic professional learning opportunities aimed at increasing math educators content and pedagogical knowledge that increases student achievement

Resources

Best for All Central provides an extensive collection of high-quality, optional resources to support teaching and learning. This hub includes a standards navigator that provides access to in-depth information about Tennessee’s academic standards as well as standards-based teaching and learning resources. The standards navigator enables users to explore student expectations for specific standards, see how those standards align across grade levels, view sample assessment items to determine mastery, and access corresponding lessons and resources. Additionally, a series of instructional videos with companion lessons are now available and continue to be added, which are intended to provide districts with weekly content on core areas of instruction.

Embarc Online provides various resources to support those using the Eureka curriculum.  We found the Google Slides particularly useful as these can be downloaded as PowerPoint presentations for each lesson.

Eureka Math offers curriculum files, lesson plans, core and supplemental materials, video series, and more. You can sign up to create a free account.

Key Math Standards ​provides a list of critical mathematics standards for each grade level. This subset of the major work of the grade standards lays the foundation for mastery of on-grade level expectations while also providing critical foundational concepts for subsequent grades.

Mathematics Vertical Progression Guides provide the specific vertical progression of mathematics standards which indicates standards immediately preceding and following 1st-8th mathematics standards.

TN Instructional Focus Documents provide teachers with examples of learning across all performance levels to help educators determine the depth of a student’s conceptual understanding of the Tennessee mathematics standards. These examples highlight ways in which students can demonstrate that they are progressing toward grade-level expectations.

Virtual Manipulatives support teachers to model abstract mathematical concepts for deeper student comprehension. The online manipulatives include an interactive clock, two-color counters, 3D dice, probability spinners, graph builders, fraction bars, base ten blocks, and more.
