Indiana's Common Core - Mathematics
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 organized into grade-specific toolboxes. To find a toolbox for your grade, please visit our Toolbox Site.
Math Practices in Action: Video Series
The video series provided here is a collaborative effort between the Indiana Department of Education, Higher Education, and several schools. These lessons have been captured to assist educators, both classroom teachers as well as administrators, implement the Standards for Mathematical Practice, which are the mathematical application behaviors students should portray while working with mathematical content standards.
Currently, the videos represent K—6 teachers, but we are working to capture additional lessons to provide a K-12 overview of what the Standards for Mathematical Practice could look like in action. Please view the brief introduction to the project below to further gain insight in how the videos can be used for professional development opportunities for classroom teachers.

Making Connections: Professional Learning Modules
From August through December 2012, IDOE released 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.
