Modes of Representation (Lesh, Post, & Behr, 1987)
Manipulative Models Real-world Situations Pictures Oral/Written Language Written Symbols

Modes of Representation
Manipulative/ Tools Real-Life Situations Picture/Graph Oral & Written Language Table/Chart The 5 (6) modalities are a helpful frame of reference for teachers, administrators, students and parents. Since the CCSSM are expectations of what students will know, do AND UNDERSTAND, it is key that students can transfer concepts between various modalities. Symbols (Equations, etc.)

The CCSS Requires Three Shifts in Mathematics

Rigor The CCSSM require a balance of: Solid conceptual understanding
Procedural skill and fluency Application of skills in problem solving situations Pursuit of all threes requires equal intensity in time, activities, and resources. {read slide}

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) One aspect of rigor is building solid conceptual understanding. Once we have a set of standards that are in fact focused, teachers and students have the time and space to develop solid conceptual understanding. {read the slide} There is no longer the pressure to quickly teach students how to superficially get to the answer, often relying on tricks or mnemonics. The standards instead require a real commitment to understanding mathematics, not just how to get the answer. As an example, it is not sufficient to simply know the procedure for finding equivalent fractions, but students also need to know what it means for numbers to be written in equivalent forms. Attention to conceptual understanding is one way that we can start counting on students building on prior knowledge. It is very difficult to build further math proficiency on a set mnemonics or discrete procedures.

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 Another aspect of rigor is procedural skill and fluency. {read slide} Note that this is not memorization absent understanding. This is the outcome of a carefully laid out learning progression. At the same time, we can’t expect fluency to be a natural outcome without addressing it specifically in the classroom and in our materials. Some students might require more practice than others, and that should be attended to. Additionally, there is not one approach to get to speed and accuracy that will work for all students. All students, however, will need to develop a way to get there. It is important to note here that while teachers in grades K-5 may find creative ways to use calculators in the classroom, students are not meeting the standards when they use them--not just in the area of fluency, but in all other areas of the standards as well.

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 This chart shows a breakdown of the required fluencies in grades K-6. Fluent in the particular Standards cited here means “fast and accurate.” It might also help to think of fluency as meaning the same thing as when we say that somebody is fluent in a foreign language: when you’re fluent, you flow. Fluent isn’t halting, stumbling, or reversing oneself. The word fluency was used judiciously in the Standards to mark the endpoints of progressions of learning that begin with solid underpinnings and then pass upward through stages of growing maturity. Some of these fluency expectations are meant to be mental and others with pencil and paper. But for each of them, there should be no hesitation about how to proceed in getting the answer with accuracy.

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. Using mathematics in problem solving contexts is the third leg of the stool supporting the learning that is going on in the math classroom. This is the “why we learn math” piece, right? We learn it so we can apply it in situations that require mathematical knowledge. There are requirements for application all the way throughout the grades in the CCSS.  {read slide}  But again, we can’t just focus solely on application—we need also to give students opportunities to gain deep insight into the mathematical concepts they are using and also develop fluency with the procedures that will be applied in these situations. The problem-solving aspect of application is what’s at stake here—if we attempt this with a lack of conceptual knowledge and procedural fluency, the problem just becomes three times harder. At the same time, we don’t want to save all the application for the end of the learning progression. Application can be motivational and interesting, and there is a need for students at all levels to connect the mathematics they are learning to the world around them.

Assessment Conceptual Assessment Includes Observational Tools

2nd Grade Example Students each create their own paper airplane and take turns flying them. They use a tape measure to find the distance each has flown to the nearest foot. What concepts are being assessed?
