Math 1

NC Math 1
Math 1 Course overview:
  • NC Math 1 Standards (rev. 2016)
  • NC Math 1 Outcomes, Learning Targets and Pacing Guide: These are organized by modules which can be considered as units. Within each module are outcomes that describe the big ideas. Within the outcome are the learning targets that indicate what students can do if they have an understanding of the outcome. The learning targets are aligned to the standards for each course.
Looking for older material:

  • NC Math 1 Pacing Guide from 2016-2017: This lists a day by day outline of the tasks for each module with a suggested pacing. The primary resource for the course is the Core-Plus Mathematics Course 1 textbook. Other suggested resources are indicated by an *.

  • Math 1 EOC Review with solutions
    • The items in this review are based on the Math 1 Standards from 2010-2016 so some of the content is no longer relevant to this course.
    • Mistake on Review #4 Problem 2: the area of the triangle is 13 square units not 26.
  • Math 1 EOC Review Resources
Curriculum Maps
These have not been revised to indicate the new NC Math 1 standards. I'm not sure I will be creating new ones; however, many of the resources included in these documents can be helpful so I will leave them here as a resource. 

The Curriculum Maps are designed to help teachers connect the standards, learning targets, and instructional resources. Each map begins with an overview of the module that attends to the instructional shifts: FOCUS - COHERENCE - RIGOR. Next, there are maps for each primary learning task listed on the pacing guide. Included on the maps are instructional notes giving teachers guidance as well as indicating specific connections to the learning targets and the Standards for Mathematical Practice. Other elements are vocabulary, suggested formative assessment, alternative resources, and supplemental resources.

Math 1 Supplemental Tasks:
Linear Functions
Exponential Functions



  1. I attended your session last October at the NCCTM Conference. I am very interested in using your ideas and resources to teach Math 1 this semester. I noticed that several of the supplemental tasks are not linked to a file. Do you have those files? And if so, are you willing to share them?


    Thanks so much!

    1. I'm excited to share anything I can. I have posted new investigations for exponentials and I am still working on ideas for the others. Keep checking back and let me know if there is something that is needed but not already addressed.

  2. Hi Karen. It's Melissa from Caswell (yes, it's me again). There is no link above to the Quadratics taking apart the Area. I think I remember doing this activity at our session, but can't find a blank copy. Will you link it above or email it to me? Thanks!!!

  3. Could you send me the remaining files for the supplemental tasks? There are a few that aren't linked. I am back to Math I after a long time and looking for something to get me through this semester.
