3 Office of Curriculum and Professional Learning Elementary Division Top 3 Facts about Common Core State Standards This is not a federal mandate or curriculum. ●Standards are adopted by the state board of education. ●They were created by teachers, college professors and researchers based on what students will need to be successful in college and career. Common Core is not taking away local control. ●Each state and/or district decides how they will meet the standards. You will feel some shifts and that is a good thing! ●Students are being asked to do more than find answers and complete tasks. ●They are now being asked to reason and work through complex problems using grade level appropriate skills.

8 Office of Curriculum and Professional Learning Elementary Division What are Mathematical Practices? The standards for Mathematical Practices describe ways in which developing students…... 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.

20 Office of Curriculum and Professional Learning Elementary Division What Can Parents Do? Be an example Many adults say they hated math in school, according to national polls. If you are one of them, be careful that you don't communicate that attitude to your child. Help her improve her attitude toward math by showing her that you are confident when completing routine tasks like counting money from a school fundraiser, balancing your checkbook, or completing your tax return. You can also point out the importance of math in different professions including architecture, medicine, fashion design, restaurant management, and computer programming.

21 Office of Curriculum and Professional Learning Elementary Division Common Core State Standards- Mathematics What Can Parents Do? Help your child use math every day Encourage your child to solve problems involving math outside of school. In the grocery store, ask her to figure out the price of four cans of tuna fish. In the car, ask her how long it will take to travel to your destination based on your speed. In the toy store, ask her to calculate the price of a discounted toy and how long it will take to save up her allowance to buy it.

22 Office of Curriculum and Professional Learning Elementary Division Common Core State Standards- Mathematics What Can Parents Do? Familiarize yourself with learning standards It's important to know what math skills your child should learn in his current grade. You can access the learning standards for your child's grade on the Web site for your state department of education or ask your child's teacher to outline them for you. If you know what your child will be learning, it will be easier to complement those skills with activities at home.

23 Office of Curriculum and Professional Learning Elementary Division Common Core State Standards- Mathematics What Can Parents Do? Monitor your child's math homework Do your child's math assignments only call for rote work or does the teacher include a creative "problem of the week" that tests students' understanding of mathematical concepts? Ask your child's teacher which techniques he uses to help students become more comfortable with math.

24 Office of Curriculum and Professional Learning Elementary Division Common Core State Standards- Mathematics What Can Parents Do? Play math games at home There are many games your child can play that involve math. Beginning in the elementary years, students can learn to enjoy math by playing games such as chess, dominoes, cribbage, checkers, Yahtzee and backgammon.

25 Office of Curriculum and Professional Learning Elementary Division Common Core State Standards- Mathematics What Can Parents Do? Read books that incorporate math More and more schools are starting to integrate diverse subject areas in the curriculum so that students can make clearer connections. But how do you include math in a history or English class? One way is to read books in which the main characters solve a problem using math or logic. Examples include One Hundred Angry Ants by Ellinor J. Pinczes, The King's Commissioners by Aileen Friedman and Socrates and the Three Little Pigs by Tuyosi Mori.

26 Office of Curriculum and Professional Learning Elementary Division Common Core State Standards- Mathematics What Can Parents Do? The bottom line We naturally encourage our children to read, write and speak outside of school, but often leave learning math skills to 45 minutes a day in the classroom. Like everything else, your child's skills and confidence in working with mathematical concepts will improve with daily practice, support and encouragement.

27 Office of Curriculum and Professional Learning Elementary Division Common Core State Standards- Mathematics What Can Parents Do? What will students have to do?What can parents do to help? Spend more time on fewer concepts Know what the priority work is for your child at their grade level Go more in-depth on each conceptSpend time with your child on priority work Ask your child’s teacher for reports on your child’s progress on priority work Spend time practicing Push children to know, understand and memorize basic math facts Know all of the fluencies your child should have Prioritize learning the fluencies your child finds most difficult

28 Office of Curriculum and Professional Learning Elementary Division Common Core State Standards- Mathematics What Can Parents Do? Make the math work, and understand why it does Ask questions and review homework to see whether your child understands why as well as what the answer is. Talk about why the math works Advocate for the time your child needs to learn key math skills Prove that they know why and how the math works Provide time for your child to work on math skills at home Apply math in real world situations Ask your child to do the math that comes up in daily life Know which math skills to use for which situation
