Common Core

Cut through the Common Core clutter


ETA hand2mind is your partner for implementing Common Core State Standards

Expectations are rising for students and teachers alike. The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) bring an unprecedented opportunity for the education community to work together to improve student learning.

Learning by doing is a fundamental part of CCSS, and building critical thinking skills gives hands-on resources a significant role in student success. Common Core is more than just content changes to the standards; it outlines a shift in the teaching of mathematics towards promoting deeper student understanding of key concepts.

Make Common Core Understandable, Relevant, and Actionable

Understand the Practices with Professional Development

Core PD: Understanding the Mathematical Practices Online or On Location Course helps teachers learn new discovery-based, hands-on instructional strategies aligned with CCSS that can be transferred to the classroom immediately. Learn more.
