Inside Mathematics: Common Core Resources: Mathematical Practice Standards - Inside Mathematics illuminates the mathematical practice standards with video excerpts of mathematics lessons. Just as with content standards, not every lesson reflects all elements of the individual standards for mathematical practice.

The Mathematics Common Core Toolbox - A resource site designed to support districts and schools working to meet the challenge and the opportunity of the CCSS. Find tools and instructional materials to help better understand and to implement the CCSS in Mathematics.

The site is broken into the following three sections:

- Standards for Mathematical Practice - This section features Key Visualizations (animations) and Formative Assessment tools and tasks.
- Standards for Mathematical Content - This section features Key Visualizations (animations) that support the CCSS content standards.
- Resources for Implementation - This section features Preparation for Implementation, Studying the Standards, and Sample Scope and Sequence.
