Connecticut Model Curriculum
The curriculum is aligned with the Connecticut Core standards for Mathematics, both the Content Standards and the Standards for Mathematical Practice. It is based on the big ideas, conceptual understandings, real world applications, hands-on experiences gathering data, and appropriate uses of technology.
The units included here have been reviewed by experts using rigorous protocols and have been found to be in alignment with the CCSS. The effectiveness of any individual unit will depend on the relationship of the unit to your yearlong curriculum plan. These units may be used as models or adapted for use in your district, school, or classroom.
The lesson plans included here have been reviewed by experts using rigorous protocols and have been found to be in alignment with the CCSS.

Math Science Partnership GrantThe MSP Program through partnerships with institutes of education and high-need districts provide intensive, content-rich professional development to teachers and other educators, with the goal of improving classroom instructions and, ultimately, student achievement in math and science.
Bridging Practices Among CT Math Educators
The Connecticut Dream Team mathematics work created materials to support instructional cycles that meet the needs of all learners. These "Instructional Cycle Guides" are designed to provide teachers with steps and materials needed to elicit student understandings and misunderstandings of a targeted concept, analyze the resulting student work, and implement a follow-up lesson that reengages students in the concept and provides opportunities for extra support and/or extension.
The following materials were developed by CT Dream Team members and will be utilized during the 2014 TeachFest.
