Implementing the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics: The CCSS Curriculum Materials Analysis Tools

This webinar provides an overview of Curriculum Materials Analysis Tools recently developed by a committee led by Bill Bush at the University of Louisville. The set of three tools can assist textbook selection committees, school administrators, and K-12 teachers in the selection of curriculum materials that support implementation of the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics. The tools are designed to provide educators with objective measures and information to guide their selection of mathematics curriculum materials based on evidence of the materials' alignment with the CCSSM including the Standards for Mathematical Practice, grade level content, equity, technology, and assessment.
