The Mathematics Assessment Project offers a set of assessment activities for middle- and high-school math teachers.

They are divided into 3 levels based on the extent to which they require students to autonomously apply their mathematical knowledge, and include a scoring rubric, a set of pre-scored sample student work, and the same set of work without the scores.

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics has a web page of free resources. They are relevant to teaching math in general but do include some online-specific resources.

This site hosts a series of workshops to share practical tips, virtual experiments and other concrete tools that families – even those with little time, few resources and no STEM exposure or teaching experience – can use to engage their children’s learning.

NASA’s Universe of Learning provides resources and experiences that enable youth, families, and lifelong learners to explore fundamental questions in science, experience how science is done, and discover the universe for themselves.

NASA provides a resource for community-based organizations to stage events that explore the wonders of NASA science, and celebrate the contributions of women to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
