TANTON’S TAKE ON THE COMMON CORE: I’ve released an overview video of my personal take on the Common Core State Standards: What are they (like, really, what are we actually talking about?) and what are they ultimately trying to do. Always interested in feedback!

    Written for educators - and their students too! - this website, slowly growing, takes all the content Tanton has developed in his books, videos, and workshops, and organizes it into short, self-contained, and complete, curriculum units proving that mathematics, at all points of the school curriculum, can be joyous, fresh, innovative, rich, deep-thinking, and devoid of any rote doing! Let's teach generations of students to be self-reliant thinkers, willing to flail and to use their common sense to "nut their way" through challenges, to assess and judge results, and to adjust actions to find success. (Great life skills!)
