Resources for High School

The North Carolina Collaborative for Mathematics Learning (NC2ML) aims to support NC math educators in implementing the revised mathematics content standards in ways that align with what we know from research on students’ mathematical thinking, mathematics teaching, and teacher learning. To do so, we have co-designed research-based professional learning resources focused on content and pedagogy.

Research-Practice Briefs

The Collaborative continues to develop research-based mathematics unit briefs and pedagogy briefs for teachers, leaders, and administrators to use in planning, PLC type meetings, and in understanding both the scope of NC mathematics and the pedagogical skills needed to support students in math learning. These briefs are aligned with the Professional Learning Modules and clarify issues related to standards revisions. They also highlight important components of units or teaching practices, promote current research on teaching and learning that can be used in instructional decision making, and end with a set of questions to guide conversations.
