Shifts in Mathematics

Oregon CSS articulation of Content Shifts
New York Engage - Common Core in Mathematics: Shift 1 – Focus
New Your Engage - Common Core in Mathematics: Shifts 2-6
Achieve the Core articulation of the 3 main shifts and fluency levels by grade. 

 


EngageNY Math

 

Wausaukee Grades pK-8 will implement the EngageNY math curriculum for the 2014-15 school year

 


Math Progressions

The Common Core State Standards in mathematics were built on progressions: narrative documents describing the progression of a topic across a number of grade levels, informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics.

Progression Documents - Institute for Mathematics and Education

K-8 Standards by Domain

Counting and Cardinality
Operations and Algebraic Thinking,
Number and Operations in Base Ten,
Number and Operations—Fractions,
Measurement and Data, Geometry,
Ratio and Proportional Relationships,
The Number System,
Expressions and Equations,
Statistics and Probability,
Functions


Standards of Mathematical Practice

1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
4. Model with mathematics.
5. Use appropriate tools strategically.
6. Attend to precision.
7. Look for and make use of structure.
8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

Standards for Mathematical Practice presentation

 


The Common Core “FlipBooks” are a compilation of research, “unpacked” standards from many states, instructional strategies and examples for each standard at each grade level. The intent is to show the connections to the Standards of Mathematical Practices for the content standards and to get detailed information at each level.

Mathematics Tasks

The Illustrative Mathematics Project

Tasks developed by state of Georgia 

K-5 Teaching Resources

 

Mathematics Performance Assessments
Inside Mathematics - tasks are more complex and would make great performance based assessment tasks 

 

Mathematical Fluencies

What is Rigor?

 

Learning experiences
that involve rigor …

Experiences that do
not involve rigor …

challenge students

are more “difficult,” with no purpose (for example, adding 7ths and 15ths without a real context)

require effort and tenacity by students

require minimal effort

focus on quality (rich tasks)

focus on quantity (more pages to do)

include entry points and extensions for all students

are offered only to gifted students

are not always tidy, and can have multiple paths to possible solutions

are scripted, with a neat path to a solution

provide connections among mathematical ideas

do not connect to other mathematical ideas

contain rich mathematics that is relevant to students

contain routine procedures with little relevance

develop strategic and flexible thinking

follow a rote procedure

encourage reasoning and sense making

require memorization of rules and procedures without understanding

expect students to be actively involved in their own learning

often involve teachers doing the work while students watch

 From NCTM - What's all the Talk about Rigor?

District Math Leadership Team

Charge of the group:

  1. Provide support and guidance in the implementation of the Common Core Standards in Mathematics
  2. Develop a framework for mathematics
  3. Establish and support pK-2, 3-5, 6-8 workgroups to input core materials in Curriculum Companion
  4. Evaluate and recommend resources for mathematics

Meetings - Thursdays, 7:35 a.m. in the LMC
