Here's a list of resources that our MERIT team put together last summer:


Here's a link to another great site put together by Steve McGriff at the Krause Center for Innovation:




If you use the Khan Academy (khanacademy.org) videos at all you may have noticed that there is a group of videos that give solutions to all of the released questions on the CST for Algebra 1. He does not have these for CST grade 7 math. So, I've started making these videos for the Grade 7 math released questions. You can find these on YouTube at this link. I hope to have all the questions done by April 8, 2011. If you use these, please let me know if you find any errors or mistakes. Thanks, Joe Donahue (jdonahue805@gmail.com).
