Indiana's Common Core - Mathematics
Posted: Mon, 10/10/2011 - 10:53am Updated: Tue, 05/07/2013 - 1:14pm
On August 3, 2010, the Indiana State Board of Education unanimously voted to adopt Indiana's Common Core Standards for Mathematics (INCC-M). Since then, various Indiana educators have worked collaboratively with Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) staff to develop classroom and district supports for effectively implementing INCC.
IDOE has assembled various resources for teachers to use to implement INCC for Mathematics. These have been oragnized into grade-specific toolboxes. To find a toolbox for your grade, please visit our Toolbox Site.
Making Connections: Professional Learning Modules
From August through December, IDOE will release Professional Learning Modules that school leaders can use to build staff capacity in implementing the INCC-M. To learn more about these modules, please view the Introduction to Professional Learning Modules video.
- Module 1: Standards for Mathematical Practice and Evaluation Models
- Module 2: Focus, Coherence, and Rigor: Instruction
- Module 3: Focus, Coherence, and Rigor: Planning
- Module 4: Focus, Coherence, and Rigor: Student Performance
- Module 5: Making the Shift in Math Rigor
- Module 6: Implementing the Standards for Mathematical Practice
- Module 7: Making the Shift in Curricular Materials
The following professional learning modules are modified presentations from the Fall 2012 ICTM meeting.
- Elementary Presentation – This presentation discusses the instructional shifts for mathematics and the standards for mathematical practice in the elementary classroom.
- Secondary Presentation – This presentation describes resources and important information for the transition to Indiana’s Common Core Standards in Grades 6-12.
- PARCC Presentation - This video provides general information about PARCC and information about the PARCC Sample Tasks and Model Content Frameworks.
Monday Math Morsels
Each Monday, a short article or video will be posted to this site to support the implementation of INCC for Mathematics. For previous Monday Math Morsels, please check the archive page.

- We receive many emails and calls asking for support with textbook selection. We have found that several state DOE’s have conducted a comprehensive textbook analysis related to the Common Core. One of the most comprehensive we have found is from Louisiana. We encourage you to use this as resource if you are in the market for new curricular materials related to Common Core. http://www.louisianabelieves.com/academics/content-and-textbooks
