Common Core State Standards
A link to the common core state standards for teaching mathematics K-12.
National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM)
Web site of the professional teacher organization. Its Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (Ref QA 13 .P735) is available in hard copy in the library reference collection on the main floor.
Kraus Curriculum Development Library
A searchable online collection of curricula from all over the country. Most (1983-2000) are available in microfiche format, but, with the 20th edition (2001), many curricula are available full text online (some earlier materials are being made available full text). If the curriculum is not available full-text the document number of the fiche is given and can be located in the Education Curriculum Center (ECC) on the first floor of Rosenthal Library (Room 109B). Fiche reader/printers in the adjoining Media Center are available to take notes and photocopy.



Sets of teacher's annotated editions of textbooks are in a collection just beyond the 4th floor Juvenile Collection. They are arranged by curricular topic, assigned a number, and then alphabetical by publisher. Each publisher set is then arranged in grade order. The most relevant textbook ranges for mathematics are:

  • 70 - Arithmetic (Mathematics, Elementary)
  • 71 - Algebra
  • 72 - Geometry
  • 73 - Trigonometry
  • 74 - Calculus

A set that can serve either as a textbook or supplementary resource is Investigations in Number, Data, & Space developed at TERC (Technical Education Research Centers). The 1st edition is in the regular 4th floor circulating collection under the call number LT 4400. The 2nd edition is in the 4th floor Textbook collection (Text 70 P5I – letter P, number 5, letter I.)



Some years are available full-text online as indicated. The most recent hard copies can be located by call number on the library 1st floor. Use the ERIC database to determine which journal has articles on the desired topic.
