PBS LearningMedia's Math at the Core: Middle School is a collection of free resources that support Common Core skills for grades 5-8. The videos, interactive activities, and infographics are organized by Common Core domain and by grade level, making it easy to find resources to use in your lesson and unit planning. All of the resources here include an educator-approved activity -- many include additional student handouts, discussion questions, and teacher-support materials.
