Common Core Implementation Video Series for Mathematics - To aid states as they implement the Common Core State Standards (Standards)in Mathematics, the Hunt Institute and the Council of Chief State School Officers have commissioned a series of 17 videos explaining the Standards in Mathematics in far greater depth.

- This document from Rhode Island Department of Education provides information and links for the Common Core Implementation Video Series for Mathematics designed to deepen understanding of the CCSS and garner support for ensuring the success of all students.
- This documents describes each of the 17 mathematics videos and the audience of educators it is targeting.

The Common Core in Mathematics: Overview - John B. King, Jr., New York State Commissioner of Education, introduces instructional strategies for successfully implementing the Common Core State Standards in Math. David Coleman, Contributing Author, Common Core State Standards, parallels the three main goals of the Common Core with successful international models and frames the six "shifts" in instruction in mathematics to be examined more thoroughly in following segments.

Dan Meyer: Math class needs a makeover - Dan Meyer shows classroom-tested math exercises that prompt students to stop and think.

The Futures Channel - Website consists of multimedia content which educators can use to enliven curriculum, engage students and otherwise enhance the learning experience; it allows teachers to connect mathematics, science, technology and engineering to the real world of careers and achievement, providing a context and purpose for what students are learning, allowing them to envision their own successful futures.
