Update on Illustrative Mathematics

Illustrative Mathematics had its advisory board meeting a couple of weeks ago at the Institute for Mathematics & Education at the University of Arizona. The board includes representatives from the national mathematics and teacher organizations, from state departments of education, and from the two federally funded assessment consortia. The board developed a protocol for reviewing tasks and problems, and we are now gearing up to process the first batch of illustrative tasks. We hope to have a prototype website displaying the standards in a flexible way online in a couple of weeks.
