This library from the classic Annenberg Learner series contains 6 videos (15-20 minutes each) demonstrating how to incorporate the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards in grade 5-8 math classrooms. Using minimal technology resources, middle school teachers model effective techniques for guiding and assessing student understanding and offer strategies for keeping students motivated and engaged. Grade 5 videos feature work with equivalent fractions and geometry. The featured techniques also support integration of the CCSS Mathematical Practices. Support pages provide further elaboration and questions to focus viewer reflection and discussion.
