Great Tasks for Mathematics

This project is a collection of tasks to support implementation of the CCSS. Many of these tasks are drawn from existing sources. Each task includes:

  • Teacher Notes that provide an overview of the task, the Common Core State Standards Content and Practices standards that the task requires
  • Activity Launch that addresses key prerequisite understandings and assesses student readiness for the task
  • Core Task with which students are expected, individually and collaboratively, to wrestle
  • Extension Activities
