Virtual Meetups: Math

The math content specialists in the Office of Learning and Instructional Strategies are scheduling virtual meetups in collaboration with various professional organizations across the state to support educators and administrators during extended remote learning. The purpose of the forum is to encourage educators and to give them a platform to network, share, and gain new skills or strategies to help students succeed during this unprecedented time. This aligns with the vision of Ohio Strategic Plan for Education, Each Child, Our Future which focuses on the whole child by empowering teachers to help their students to become resilient lifelong learners who contribute to society. These meetups help to facilitate discussions about equitable learning opportunities and practices for each child while partnering with educators and professional organizations to promote quality schools and student success.

The Department will co-host and publicize the meetups in conjunction with any guest facilitator who is sponsored by one of the local professional organizations. The virtual meetups will be scheduled across grade bands and content areas.

Instructions on Zoom

Zoom video collaboration software enables teachers and students take part in high-quality, live, online learning opportunities. Zoom requires no special technology, and participants can use it on any platform including Windows, Mac, iOS, Android and Chromebooks. Students situated remotely and lacking computers or smart devices still can receive audio instruction using a telephone. 

Zoom training opportunities for all Ohio school districts are available on the Department's website. Educators who would like Zoom training can attend the next Zoom as a Teacher-Host webinar series or watch any of the previously recorded webinars online. There is no fee or registration for the webinars. Find previous webinar sessions, additional remote resources, Zoom how-to videos and more information about INFOhio's free digital content and resources on the Management Council’s Community site supporting remote learning. For more information about the training, contact the Management Council or your local Information Technology Center

Resources Created by Organizations from Outside of Ohio 

These resources were created by professional organizations outside of Ohio and are not guaranteed to fully align to the Ohio Learning Standards for Mathematics.  When reviewing these resources, educators can use the expectations for learning and content elaborations contained in the Model Curriculum to help make determinations on whether to use the materials with their instruction. 
  • Achieve the Core - These guides will help educators understand and implement the mathematics standards. They can use the guides as they observe teachers giving instruction and provide them with feedback that supports their planning and reflection.
  • Arizona Progressions - These narrative documents describe the typical learning progression of a topic, informed by both research on children’s cognitive development and the logical structure of mathematics.

  • Equip – Provides educators with tools to identify high-quality materials for use in classrooms and national examples of high-quality materials aligned to the standards.

  • The Educators Evaluating the Quality of Instructional Products (EQuIP) Rubric provides criteria to measure alignment and overall quality of lessons and units. 

  • Illuminations - This project by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics provides quality lessons and interactive resources for teaching and learning mathematics.  

  • Illustrative Mathematics – This site illustrates the range and types of mathematical work that students should experience as teachers use Ohio's Learning Standards in Mathematics. It also presents other tools supporting standards-based instruction.

  • Inside Mathematics - Educators can find exemplary standards-based lesson ideas on this site, as well as classroom videos. Teachers interested in the lessons can search under “performance task” for lesson ideas organized by grade and course.

  • K-2 Performance Level Descriptors -The K-2 Performance Level Descriptors (PLD) document by the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) is a tool developed with input from Ohio educators. The K-2 PLDs serve as a tool that can help math educators identify student proficiency along a progression of learning during instruction. Therefore, when tasks are given to students, these performance level descriptors will help teachers make instructional decisions to help move their students’ learning forward. 

  • National Library of Virtual Manipulatives - The site contains manipulatives and concept tutorials across the grade bands.   

  • Teaching Channel - Provides guiding questions to use during planning and instruction. Classroom videos model best practices. Learning activities showcase rigorous problems that deepen conceptual understanding.  

  • YouCubed – Showcases research-based teaching methods, mathematics tasks, videos and ideas on how to bring about high levels of student engagement.
