Instructional Resources

Here is an overview of the resources you will find in each domain and grade level link:


Instructional Tasks are resources for teachers to engage students in higher levels of thinking and reasoning called for by the Tennessee state standards for mathematics. This document outlines considerations for using instructional tasks in the classroom.


A task arc is a set of related tasks and lesson guides that focus on a small number the Tennessee state math standards.  Each task arc contains an overview and detailed information on how the tasks and lessons progress.  The Task Arc User Guide explains how the task arcs are designed and how they develop and solidify understanding.

K-12 Math Online Learning Series

The Tennessee Department of Education in partnership with the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) and Tennessee’s affiliate stations has developed a series of short online learning tools for educators. The professional learning tools in the K-12 Math series are available here.   These online tools focus on K-12 Math instruction for Tennessee State Standards and directly support learning of the 2013 TNCore summer training modules. The online tools cover the same topics as the summer training, but do not represent the full content of the 2013 Summer Reading Course. 


These tools, featured in our summer trainings, are intended to support teachers working to implement rigorous mathematics tasks in their classroom.
