20 Dan Meyer: Math Class Needs a Makeover
21 Solve problems involving the major content for their grade level with connections to practices Solve problems involving the additional and supporting content for their grade level with connections to practices Express mathematical reasoning by constructing mathematical arguments and critiques Use the modeling practice to solve real world problems Demonstrate fluency in areas set forth in the Standards for Content in grades 3-6 PARCC: Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Career What does it mean? “Students are on-track or ready for college and careers.”
22 Standards of Mathematical Practices (MP) 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. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others Model with mathematics. Attend to precision WHAT’S NEW?
23SA MS/HS– PD Session 3| April 4., 2011 MC- one right answer (traditional format) MC – more than one right answer (at least A-D) MC – yes/no true/false listed questions; multiple- standards SCR – fill-in-the blank OE – compare/contrast; explain/defend; how do you know?

27PVRSD Math TF – Work Session 1 | November 18, 2010 Understanding the Common Core State Standards …is to understand PARCC
28 Why Common Core State Standards? Before Common Core State Standards we had standards, but rarely did we have standards-based instruction. Long lists of broad, vague statements Mysterious assessments Coverage mentality Focused on teacher behaviors – “the inputs”
29 Principles of the CCSS… FEWER - CLEARER - HIGHER Aligned to requirements for College and Career Readiness Based on evidence Honest about time
30 The CCSS Difference: Grade 8 Mathematics (2004) Before NJCCCS: 1. Understand and apply the Pythagorean Theorem. (2010) After CCSS 1. Explain a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse. 1. Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to determine unknown side lengths in right triangles in real-world and mathematical problems in two and three dimensions. 1. Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to find the distance between two points in a coordinate system.
31 a 2 + b 2 = c 2 a b c a = 4 b = 3 c = ?
32 Implications of the CCSS on WHAT and HOW to teach… What are the Critical Shifts to Consider?
33 COMMON CORE SHIFTS in ASSESSMENTS Shift 1: Focus Priority standards = focus of the assessments. Other standards deemphasized. Shift 2: Coherence Assessments will reflect the progression of content and concepts as depicted in the standards across grade levels. Shift 3: Fluency It will be assumed students possess required fluencies through grade 8; as such, students will not be allowed to use calculators in grades 3-5. Students will be allowed to use four-function calculators with a square root key or scientific calculators in grade 6 and scientific calculators in grades 7-8.
34 CC SHIFTS in ASSESSMENTS continued …. Shift 4: Deep Understanding Each standard will be assessed from multiple perspectives, while not veering from the primary target of measurement for the standard. Shift 5: Application Shift 6: Dual Intensity Students will be expected to know grade-level mathematical content with fluency and to know which mathematical concepts to employ to solve real-world mathematics problems.

59 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. 59

98 What makes Casey’s experiences at bat humorous? What can you infer from King’s letter about the letter that he received? “The Gettysburg Address” mentions the year According to Lincoln’s speech, why is this year significant to the events described in the speech? 98 In “Casey at the Bat,” Casey strikes out. Describe a time when you failed at something. In “Letter from a Birmingham Jail,” Dr. King discusses nonviolent protest. Discuss, in writing, a time when you wanted to fight against something that you felt was unfair. In “The Gettysburg Address” Lincoln says the nation is dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Why is equality an important value to promote? Not Text-Dependent in ELAText-Dependent in ELA
99 Text-Dependent in mathematics December 2, 2013 author: J. Brendel Material not to be duplicated.
100 Regular Practice with Complex Text and Its “Academic Language” Basic constructions w/triangles using protractors, compasses or online with simulation tools: Students construct, do proofs and solve problems involving: Medians, vertex angle, balancing point, centroid Altitudes, acute triangles, obtuse triangles, right triangles, orthocenter, interior, exterior or …. Perpendicular Bisectors, concurrent lines, point of concurrency, circumcenter of a triangle Angle Bisectors, incenter, equidistant, …. Geometry
101 Regular Practice with Complex Text and its “Academic Language” Cramer’s Rule for solving systems of equations uses determinants to solve for each variable. D is the determinant of the coefficient matrix. Dy is the determinant formed by replacing the coefficients of y in D with the constant terms. Algebra-II Sample academic language in a basic statistics task: measure of central tendency, skewed, mean, median, mode, outlier, bimodal, quartiles, box-and-whisker plot, percentile, random sample, … New to Pre-Algebra, Algebra I or II
102 Regular Practice with Complex Text and its Academic Language (“Adult Language”) Example: Phone company ‘A’ charges an initiation fee plus a charge per minute. The cost of using 300 minutes (plus initiation fee) is $25 and the cost of 700 minutes (plus initiation fee) is $33. Write an equation to represent the cost. What is the initiation fee? What is the cost per minute? Is this company’s offer better than the new phone company ‘B’s? Explain or compare with charts and graphs. Pre-Algebra, Algebra
103 Adjusting Math Language to the CCSS Old habit to eliminate: Defining equality as “same as.” The problem: This is mathematically incorrect and leads to misconceptions. (2)(2) is equivalent to √16 New habit to adopt: Defining equality as “same value as.” Old habit to eliminate: “Addition makes things get bigger.” The problem: When negative numbers are introduced, the old habit has to be debugged. (-4) + (-5) New habit to adopt: Addition is about combining. Old habit to eliminate: “Subtraction makes things get smaller.” The problem: As with addition, negative numbers make this wrong. New habit to adopt: Subtraction is about difference. (-4) - (-8)
104 Regular Practice With Complex Text and its Academic Language: Why? Gap between complexity of college and high school texts is huge. What students can read, in terms of complexity is greatest predictor of success in college (ACT study). Too many students are reading at too low a level.
105 What are the Features of Complex Text? Subtle and/or frequent transitions Multiple and/or subtle themes and purposes Density of information Unfamiliar settings, topics or events Lack of repetition, overlap or similarity in words and sentences Complex sentences
106 What are the Features of Complex Text? (cont.) Uncommon vocabulary Lack of words, sentences or paragraphs that review or pull things together for the student Longer paragraphs Any text structure which is less narrative and/or mixes structures
107 The Standards are NOT new names for old ways of doing things…

132 Modifications Accommodations NOT permitted Modifications involve changes in the conditions under which a student takes an assessment that result in unacceptable changes to the test itself, or what the test measures (e.g., reducing or changing expectations for students) and are therefore not permitted on PARCC assessments. Examples of modifications that will result in invalidated results on PARCC include: Requiring a student to be assessed on less content matter than other students because he has been taught less material; Reducing the scope of assessments so a student needs to complete only a limited number of problems or items;
133 Modifying the complexity of assessments to make them easier (e.g., deleting half of the response choices on a multiple-choice test so that a student selects from two options instead of four); Giving hints, clues, or other coaching that directs the student to correct responses on assignments and tests; Adults defining vocabulary on the test or explaining test items; Allowing the student to complete an assessment of English language arts in a language other than English; and Using dictionaries that provide definitions (rather than an acceptable word-to-word dual-language dictionary).
136 What does “distinguished” (Level 5) mean? “Students performing at this level demonstrate a distinguished command of the knowledge, skills, and practices embodied by the Common Core State Standards for English language arts/literacy assessed at grade 11. They are academically well prepared to engage successfully in entry-level, credit-bearing courses in College English Composition, Literature, and technical courses requiring college-level reading and writing. Students performing at this level are exempt from having to take and pass placement tests in two- and four-year public institutions of higher education designed to determine whether they are academically prepared for such courses without need for remediation.”
137 What does it mean to be CCR? (Level-4) “Students who earn a PARCC College- and Career-Ready Determination by performing at Level 4 in mathematics and enroll in College Algebra, Introductory College Statistics, and technical courses requiring an equivalent level of mathematics have approximately a 0.75 probability of earning college credit by attaining at least a grade of C or its equivalent in those courses.”
138 What does it mean to be CCR? (cont.) Will be used as a benchmark against which the CCR cut score on the PARCC assessments will be validated through empirical research. WHY - a “C” is the minimum grade needed to earn credit for a course WHY - a reasonably high standard but not unattainable. WHY - similar to the criteria used by ACT, WHY - other important CCR skills will not be measured by PARCC assessments.
139 What are the cut scores for each level? As/PARCC, “the vendor selected through the RFP will also work with state leaders, educators and eternal experts to determine the cut scores to establish the five PARCC Performance levels for each grade-level assessment. RFP for “Operational Assessment” Vendor proposals were due by Dec. 11, 2013.

142 PARCC Timeline… *Over the next year, PARCC will develop five online training modules for teachers, school leaders, and school site testing coordinators – each with a unique purpose. PARCC will produce modules with the following foci: 1.PARCC Common Assessments Overview 2.Introduction to the PARCC Mid-Year Assessment 3.Introduction to the PARCC Diagnostic Assessment 4.Introduction to the PARCC Speaking/Listening Assessment 5.PARCC Accessibility System *It is anticipated that modules will be available in June 2014.
143 PARCC Timeline… NJ SpotlightNJ Spotlight (Nov. 20, 2013) For the first time since 1989, New Jersey will next year suspend its requirement that high school graduates pass a state test in language arts and math to receive their diplomas. (No HSPA) But that doesn't mean there will be fewer tests, just that they'll be used for different purposes. For instance, current eighth, ninth, and 10th graders will be tested in language arts and math now in three separate tests, and while passing the exams will not be required for graduation, the scores will be included in a student’s permanent transcript. ( school year)
144 HIGHER ED FOCUS June 16-17, 2014 convening The focus will be on policy associated with student scores that signal on track; that signal a student is ready for entry level, college-bearing credit classes.
