Deep Dive into the Math Shifts of the Common Core

State Standards

- Christa Lemily

Purpose of Today

- Understand how to implement the common core as

the writers intended - Give you resources to do this without guessing
- HOW involves understanding 3 Shifts
- Focus (most important of the three)
- Coherence
- Rigor
- Think vertically today strategic grouping today

The Background of the Common Core

- Initiated by the National Governors Association

(NGA) and Council of Chief State School Officers

(CCSSO) with the following design principles - Result in College and Career Readiness
- Based on solid research and practice evidence
- Fewer, higher, and clearer

The CCSS Requires Three Shifts in Mathematics

- Focus Focus strongly where the Standards focus.
- Coherence Think across grades, and link to major

topics within grades. - Rigor In major topics, pursue conceptual

understanding, procedural skill and fluency, and

application.

Shift 1 Focus Strongly where the Standards Focus

- Significantly narrow the scope of content and

deepen how time and energy is spent in the math

classroom. - Focus deeply on what is emphasized in the

standards, so that students gain strong

foundations.

Key Areas of Focus in Mathematics

Grade Focus Areas in Support of Rich Instruction and Expectations of Fluency and Conceptual Understanding

K2 Addition and subtraction - concepts, skills, and problem solving and place value

35 Multiplication and division of whole numbers and fractions concepts, skills, and problem solving

6 Ratios and proportional reasoning early expressions and equations

7 Ratios and proportional reasoning arithmetic of rational numbers

8 Linear algebra and linear functions

Engaging with the shift What do you think

belongs in the major work of each grade?

Grade Which two of the following represent areas of major focus for the indicated grade? Which two of the following represent areas of major focus for the indicated grade? Which two of the following represent areas of major focus for the indicated grade?

K Compare numbers Use tally marks Understand meaning of addition and subtraction

1 Add and subtract within 20 Measure lengths indirectly and by iterating length units Create and extend patterns and sequences

2 Work with equal groups of objects to gain foundations for multiplication Understand place value Identify line of symmetry in two dimensional figures

3 Multiply and divide within 100 Identify the measures of central tendency and distribution Develop understanding of fractions as numbers

4 Examine transformations on the coordinate plane Generalize place value understanding for multi-digit whole numbers Extend understanding of fraction equivalence and ordering

5 Understand and calculate probability of single events Understand the place value system Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to multiply and divide fractions

6 Understand ratio concepts and use ratio reasoning to solve problems Identify and utilize rules of divisibility Apply and extend previous understandings of arithmetic to algebraic expressions

7 Apply and extend previous understandings of operations with fractions to add, subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers Use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions Generate the prime factorization of numbers to solve problems

8 Standard form of a linear equation Define, evaluate, and compare functions Understand and apply the Pythagorean Theorem

Alg.1 Quadratic inequalities Linear and quadratic functions Creating equations to model situations

Alg.2 Exponential and logarithmic functions Polar coordinates Using functions to model situations

Engaging with the K-2, 3-5, or 6-8 Content

- How would you summarize the major work of K-2,

3-5, or 6-8? - What would you have expected to be a part of the

major work that is not? - Give an example of how you would approach

something differently in your teaching if you

thought of it as supporting the major work,

instead of being a separate discrete topic.

Shift 2 Coherence Think Across Grades, and

Link to Major Topics Within Grades

- Carefully connect the learning within and across

grades so that students can build new

understanding on foundations built in previous

years. - Begin to count on solid conceptual understanding

of core content and build on it. Each standard is

not a new event, but an extension of previous

learning.

Coherence Think Across Grades

- Example Fractions
- The coherence and sequential nature of

mathematics dictate the foundational skills that

are necessary for the learning of algebra. The

most important foundational skill not presently

developed appears to be proficiency with

fractions (including decimals, percents, and

negative fractions). The teaching of fractions

must be acknowledged as critically important and

improved before an increase in student

achievement in algebra can be expected. - Final Report of the National Mathematics Advisory

Panel (2008, p. 18)

Looking For Coherence Within Grades

- Examples
- 1st grade 5th grade Represent and Interpret

Data - 3rd grade 5th grade Relate area (volume) to

multiplication and to addition. - 6th grade Solve problems by graphing in all 4

quadrants. (1st year of rational numbers) - 8th grade Understand the connections between

proportional relationships, lines and linear

equations.

Coherence Card Activity

- Activity Place the standards of each color

under the appropriate grade (K-8). - Determine a theme for each color.
- No grade has two of the same color card.
- Some themes that have only a few cards might

represent consecutive grades and some may not. - Read each card in its entirety to help determine

placement. - Do not check your Standards until you and your

colleagues agree on the final product. - Discuss horizontal and vertical observations with

your partners.

Rigor

- The CCSSM require a balance of
- Solid conceptual understanding
- Procedural skill and fluency
- Application of skills in problem solving

situations - Pursuit of all three requires equal intensity in

time, activities, and resources.

Solid Conceptual Understanding

- Teach more than how to get the answer and

instead support students ability to access

concepts from a number of perspectives - Students are able to see math as more than a set

of mnemonics or discrete procedures - Conceptual understanding supports the other

aspects of rigor (fluency and application)

Fluency

- The standards require speed and accuracy in

calculation. - Teachers structure class time and/or homework

time for students to practice core functions such

as single-digit multiplication so that they are

more able to understand and manipulate more

complex concepts

Required Fluencies in K-6

Grade Standard Required Fluency

K K.OA.5 Add/subtract within 5

1 1.OA.6 Add/subtract within 10

2 2.OA.2 2.NBT.5 Add/subtract within 20 (know single-digit sums from memory) Add/subtract within 100

3 3.OA.7 3.NBT.2 Multiply/divide within 100 (know single-digit products from memory) Add/subtract within 1000

4 4.NBT.4 Add/subtract within 1,000,000

5 5.NBT.5 Multi-digit multiplication

6 6.NS.2,3 Multi-digit division Multi-digit decimal operations

Fluency in High School

Application

- Students can use appropriate concepts and

procedures for application even when not prompted

to do so. - Teachers provide opportunities at all grade

levels for students to apply math concepts in

real world situations, recognizing this means

different things in K-5, 6-8, and HS. - Teachers in content areas outside of math,

particularly science, ensure that students are

using grade-level-appropriate math to make

meaning of and access science content.

Engaging with the shift Making a True Statement

Rigor ______ ________ _______

- This shift requires a balance of three discrete

components in math instruction. This is not a

pedagogical option, but is required by the

Standards. Using grade __ as a sample, find and

copy the standards which specifically set

expectations for each component.

It Starts with Focus

- The current U.S. curriculum is "a mile wide and

an inch deep." - Focus is necessary in order to achieve the rigor

set forth in the standards. - Remember Hong Kong example more in-depth mastery

of a smaller set of things pays off.

The Coming CCSS Assessments Will Focus Strongly

on the Major Work of Each Grade

Cautions Implementing the CCSS is...

- Not about gap analysis
- Not about buying a text series
- Not a march through the standards
- Not about breaking apart each standard
