Tools4NCTeachers is designed to support North Carolina's Standard Course of Study for K-5 mathematics. The resources are supplemental, intended to serve as model lessons and tasks. They are not a curriculum with a scope and sequence for daily instruction.

The grade level resources are organized around the North Carolina Collaborative for Mathematics Learning (NC2ML) Instructional Frameworks. Each grade's Instructional Framework contains 7-9 clusters, designed to foster student' understanding and the making of connections among mathematical ideas and procedures.

When preparing to teach a new cluster, teachers should begin with the Introductory Materials section. This contains a crucial document called 'About This Cluster', which describes the significant concepts and skills within the standards and outlines important considerations for the teacher. Additionally, the Introductory Materials section contains parent letters, detailing upcoming standards using parent-friendly terms in both English and Spanish.
