October 2013

There is an initiative to stop double testing 8th graders.

There is a Network Team Institute in November, I'll be going and taking my usual detailed (boring) notes and perhaps a video voice-over summary. New books have been published with module sequence and similar modeling. Common Core Inc is now releasing modules under the title "Eureka Math", a more traditional textbook form for the modules.


September 2013

Best links for seeing modeling and other great stuff, including Bill Davidson.

The first year of module instruction is begining for many teachers. For many it is incredibly different way of teaching mathematics.

 Updates: You can find a list of all module updates here.

Instruction: Those who adopting the models and concept development components might find these videos helpful. We are also offering a whole bunch of module instruction PD this year. Check for registration.

Printing: Please make sure you follow your school's policy on printing. The modules are massive documents, many are now available as files for "Student" or "Teacher Editions". The duplication center needs the documents in the format you want when you order. If you have a word doc or pdf that is ready and school approved, you can send it to

 Errors: (feel free to let let me know errors you find)

NOTE : Kindergarten: M1 Lesson 4 homework is currently being revised – an updated version will be posted soon. (Updated 9/13/13)
