Welcome!  Thank you for stopping by A+ Math Coach.  This website has
been designed to meet the instructional needs of K-5 Math teachers.  Currently
the site provides support for the HMH Go Math! program and the Chicago EveryDay Math program.  Additionally, you can find Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for grades K-5 Math and information on the PARCC assessment.

First in Math Teachers, don't forget to log into First in Math each day and complete the "Card of the Day" contest.  To play, turn the four numbers on the card into the target number 24. You must use all four numbers, but use each number only once. You can add, subtract, mulitply and divide.  At the end of each month, 3 WINNERS chosen at random from all eligible contestants will receive ONE 24® Game Tournament Kit ($95.00 value) PLUS 6 FIM Player of the Day VIP Badges.
Go Math! All materials in the teacher's kits, as well as student editions, are available online.  Take a moment to set up your class in ThinkCentral.  Once set up, students will be able to take Chapter tests and play games/activities geared towards their specific weaknesses.
Common Core Standards  In Mathematics, the Common Core State Standards lay a solid foundation in: whole numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, and decimals. Taken together, these elements support a student’s ability to learn and apply more demanding math concepts and procedures. The middle school and high school standards call on students to practice applying mathematical ways of thinking to real world issues and challenges; they prepare students to think and reason mathematically.
PARCC  The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a consortium of states working together to develop a common set of K-12 assessments in English and math anchored in what it takes to be ready for college and careers. These K-12 assessments will build a pathway to college and career readiness by the end of high school, mark students’ progress toward this goal from 3rd grade up, and provide teachers with timely information to inform instruction and provide student support.
