Listed below are the resources I frequently visit to continue my own exploration of math education. Learn from some of the best organizations and math educators around.

National Council of Teachers of Mathematics

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics should be your go-to for all things related to math education. Full of resources, research based journals, workshops, and conferences you are bound to learn something each time you visit their website. Consider joining to make the most of what this excellent organization has to offer.

Robert Kaplinsky

A visit to Robert Kaplinsky’s blog always sparks ideas and questions. His webinars are excellent for self-paced professional development and he has a plethora of lessons available for K-12 teachers.

Graham Fletcher

Ever done a 3-Act task with your students? If not, it’s time to explore Graham Fletcher’s website, learn more about 3-Act tasks, get examples, and finally–try one out with your students.


Jo Boaler is a leader in the world of math education. Her books and research on math education combined with growth mindset have led me not only to guide students down a positive pathway in math, but also has changed my personal outlook in other areas of my life.

Illustrative Mathematics

Illustrative Mathematics provides a library of free content and practice standards for grades K-12. The tasks offered give students the opportunity to interact deeply with the standards and for teachers to gain a true understanding of student knowledge.

Online Manipulatives

The Math Learning Center is one of my go-to sites for online manipulatives. My absolute favorite tool is the partial product finder, which can help students make sense of multiplication in 3rd grade and expand through 4th grade multi-digit multiplication and division and into 5th grade decimal operations. Best of all–it’s free!

Which One Doesn’t Belong?

Which One Doesn’t Belong? is a great activity to do with students at any grade level. The activity can be adjusted to reflect current standards being taught, or just a fun way to tap into your students’ mathematical knowledge. Use this website as a starter and be inspired to create some of your own!

Would You Rather?

Would You Rather? is another great activity to include in your daily math block. The conversations which will come from this routine will amaze you. Again, be inspired by this website and then go create some of your own. The students love ones which relate directly to their own lives!
