Tools for understanding   Mathematical Practices including performance assessments, problems of the month   and classroom videos. This work grew out of the Noyce Foundation Silicon Valley   Mathematics Initiative.

Mathematics Assessment Project

 The project set out to design and develop well-engineered tools for formative and   summative assessment that expose students’ mathematical knowledge and   reasoning, helping teachers guide them towards improvement and monitor progress.   The tools are relevant to any curriculum that seeks to deepen students' understanding   of mathematical concepts and develop their ability to apply that knowledge to non-   routine problems.

 Math Design Collaborative

 The Mathematics Design Collaborative (MDC) brings to mathematics teaching and   learning high-quality instructional tools and professional support services.
 The curricular and instructional resources on EngageNY have been created by New York teachers to support student learning of the Common Core State Standards. Some lessons in the modules provide detailed instructions or recommendations, but it is important to note that the lessons are not scripts.
