This website provides small descriptions and links to 10 virtual tools for a math classroom. Most of the tools are very fluid and can be used for any grade level. GetTheMath is one of the tools mentioned that provides students with problems represented in the real world. This type of student engagement connects the students with the math.
This website ensures that pedagogical content knowledge is important when incorporating technology into a math class. Using technological pedagogical content knowledge, TPCK, ensures that the lessons being taught are useful with the technology knowledge of the students, the content knowledge of the students and how the teacher should teach them together. The website also encourages using technology for deeper thought instead of using it as an online replacement for a worksheet.
This website encourages the use of technology for supplementing and enhancing lessons for student engagement. Technology in a math classroom has been scientifically proven to help and enhance students learning and engagement. This website quotes NCTM about technology integrating into math classrooms along with reminding the reader that these are just technological tools. Not replacing a teacher in the classroom.

This video talks about math and the common core state standards. The main purpose is to learn how teachers and students are shifting their math classrooms to promote mathematical reasoning.
This article talks about how the common core has reshaped math education. This reshaping is something most parents are struggling with while the teachers are succeeding. Parents are not understanding that math is more conceptual than it is algorithmic.
This website refers to preschool children learning math, but still hits on the fact that trying to make sure you as a teacher are hitting on the standards is difficult and intimidating. The author talks about playful instruction which is where the students don't realize they are learning math, but the engagement is so active that they are.

Gladis Kersaint explains the importance of mathematical discourse in the classroom. Kersaint also demonstrates how to create a discourse-rich community within the math classroom. This engages children into their learning and helps create good learning strategies for students as well.
Being able to use insightful moments, incorporate playfulness, and using prior talking strategies are what help students with mathematical discourse. This blog post reaches deeper into these steps as to help teachers incorporate this themselves into their own classroom.
Mathematical discourse is not easy to implement into a classroom. This blog post uses a strategy of asking questions about what is a good task to use for this. One of the questions is asking yourself if the task is of high-cognitive demand which would require a lot of discussion among students.

This article mentions a few of the math assessment standards and how they can be implemented into the classroom. It also provides examples to use for possible assessment in different situations.
This article does not specifically talk about math assessment, but assessment in general. The article reflects on why oral tests, written tests, etc. have been static over the years: because they work! This article also gives ways to implement different assessment into the classroom rather than just quizzes and tests. This is an idea that could be used for my own math classroom.
This picture provides three different ways to assess. These can be used for any subject to improve teaching and learning. Also, the link provided gives more detail about each category.

The paper provides insight on how to be successful for your first college math class. The skills provided are skills that are successful and effective for students to pass their college level math course.
This blog post provides advice for young mathematicians on how to stay on track and not give up. Pushing forward through the first few years will be the hardest part of their career. Time management, collaboration with other mathematicians, and keeping a collection of examples in your content area are just a few of the most important things to do to keep your head up and succeed.
This article gives insight as to why people feel that they are "just no good at math." Everyone is completely capable of learning K-12 math, but it takes a while to master complex concepts just like it takes a while for everyone to learn how to read well.

This article talks about the DOs and DONTs for ELLs in a math classroom. This information helps teachers understand that just because their is a language barrier does not mean that the student is not smart and incapable of doing the same work. We must treat all of the students with the same respect and understand that each student is at a different level in their academic career.
This article written by an ELL herself gives insight as to why this instruction is so important. Many people think math is a universal language so all students should be able to pick up on it quickly. This is not the case. Math is like learning a second language and understanding the vocabulary and content is extremely important in order to move forward each year.
This Scholastic article shares 10 different ways to help ELLs succeed in a math classroom. These students are learning content and a second language side by side. Any way to help them is making sure they succeed with not just passing through, but actually learning.

This capstone project examines 12 best practices for teaching math vocab. The project goes into detail about each practice and gives research that was found along with the practice as well.
This PowerPoint gives insight into what good math vocab instruction actually is and how to execute it. It also provides different ways to implement good instruction as well.

This blog post provides 5 literacy strategies to use to teach mathematics. These strategies are pulled from reading and language arts classrooms, but can be easily used in the math classroom.
This website provides a strategy for comprehension of math problems. The strategy requires the students to ask themselves the main idea of the lesson, what questions that have, what inferences they have, what facts they have, etc. This allows the students to make sense of the math individually rather than relying on only lecture from the teacher.
This presentation hits on math conversation and why it is important. It gives a six step process on how incorporate and have math conversation in your own classroom. There are also a couple of examples on what you can use to help jump start the math conversations in the classroom.
