Today, I launched Reach the Source. Reach the Source (RTS) is a resource of materials related to New York State Common Core high school mathematics (Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II). The materials here are designed to clarify New York State's supplementary material for Common Core high school math standards, which can be found on several documents on the New York State Education Department's EngageNY web site.
