I'm not sure that I'm totally clear on what you are trying to do. Vertical alignment of math standards is evident in the CCSS standards. Teachers could use the Coherence Map on Achieve the Core's website to take a domain of math (ie Numbers in Base Ten) and map out the pathway that each standard takes in the grades above and below their current grade. http://achievethecore.org/coherence-map/ For example, if you go to 3.NBT.2 about adding and subtracting multi-digit numbers you can stretch it back to pre-requisites like 2.NBT.7 and then to grade 4 standards like 4.NBT.4. You can print the paper version or use the online "Prezi-like" version to click through to follow a path. Once they've found a pathway of standards that vertically align, have them deconstruct the elements of each standard, considering what is the same and how it is building across the grades. Teachers could look at assessment questions that align with standards in that pathway and discover the subtle, and huge, differences that are apparent as it builds.
