1 Common Core State Standards Mathematics CCSS Communications Summit

2 Washington’s Vision for Education Every Washington public school student will graduate from high school globally competitive for work and postsecondary education and prepared for life in the 21 st century. CCSS Communications Summit Class of 2011: Bridgeport High School

3 Guiding Questions  Who are your audiences for communications (parents, teachers, public - Communication In and Communication Out )?  What are the top 2 or 3 main messages or actions needed for each audience and their timing? CCSS_MATH_Comm_4.14_v1 3

4 Our Time Together  Misconceptions of the CCSS-M  Math & the Standards  The 3 Shifts for Mathematics  Resources CCSS Communications Summit

5 Myth: Common Core is a Curriculum  The CCSS outline the math students need to understand at each grade level or course.  Washington State is a local control state which means curriculum decisions reside within the school district.  Some curriculum will say “Common Core”. This is to identify that the curriculum is covering the math outlined in the CCSS—can be confusing.

6 Myth: Common Core is a Pedagogy  Direct Instruction, Constructivism, New Math, etc.– these are ways of approaching teaching math. The CCSS is not about how teachers should teach—  Good teaching practice is to reflect on your instruction (what ever approach that is) and make adjustments as needed to ensure students are able to make sense and understand the math. CCSS_MATH_Comm_4.14_v1 6

7 Will the Problems Students Experience Look Different? From a parent, via Facebook: I'm curious about your take on the new common core math. My daughter is in 2nd grade and I can totally see a shift in the ways that the problems are being asked on her worksheets… CCSS Communications Summit

8 Because You Can’t Memorize Understanding  Our focus has been on answer getting.  Rather than the student’s thinking in getting to that answer.  Has lead to student (and adult) feelings that “I am not good at math”  We must value how each individual student makes sense of the math CCSS Communications Summit

9  Find the answer to this problem. 42 – 18  Consider a different way to solve the problem.  Share with your neighbor how you arrived at your answer. CCSS Communications Summit

10 Mathematical Strategies Thinking Flexibly  Standard algorithm  Decomposing & Composing, for example: Round 42 to 40 (2 left over), round 18 to 20 (two left over), 40 – 20 = 20, add the 4 left over (2 + 2) to = 24  Number Line CCSS Communications Summit

11 Place Value – 2 nd Grade CCSS Communications Summit We have a sophisticated number system that is based on place value. Can you add Roman Numerals? VII + XVII = ? Fundamental concept at 2 nd grade

12 Find the Answer to this Problem: 32 x 24 =  Standard Algorithm  Arrays CCSS Communications Summit

13 3 rd Grade Place Value, Operations CCSS Communications Summit

14 Building Understanding for Algebra (2x + 2) (x + 4) CCSS Communications Summit x x + 8

15 CCSS Communications Summit

16 How do we respond?  What is the root of this parent’s frustration?  What are other reasons parents might be frustrated with the math?  Turn to your neighbor and discuss these questions and share how you might respond to this parent. CCSS Communications Summit

17 Reality – We do not see significant gains in math especially as students move into high school and college CCSS Communications Summit

18 Mathematics The 3 Shifts CCSS Communications Summit

19 The Three Shifts in Mathematics  Focus : Strongly where the standards focus  Coherence : Think across grades and link to major topics within grades  Rigor : In major topics, pursue with equal intensity:  Conceptual understanding  Procedural skill and fluency  Application CCSS Communications Summit

20 Shift One: Focus Strongly Where the Standards Focus Move away from "mile wide, inch deep" curricula. Significantly narrow the scope of content to focus on key concepts and skills at each grade level or in math courses. Teach less, learn more in building understanding. CCSS Communications Summit – Ginsburg et al., 2005 Less topic coverage can be associated with higher scores on those topics covered because students have more time to master the content that is taught.”

21 K 12 Number and Operations Measurement and Geometry Algebra and Functions Statistics and Probability Traditional K-12 U.S. Approach CCSS Communications Summit

22 Pre-K-8 Domains Progression Domains K Counting and Cardinality Operations and Algebraic Thinking Number and Operations in Base Ten Number and Operations - Fractions Ratios and Proportional Relationships The Number System Expressions and Equations Functions Geometry Measurement and Data Statistics and Probability Focus by Grade Level CCSS Communications Summit

23 Attaining Focus in early grades K-2 is a deep focus on number, place value, and operation (addition and subtraction) - concepts, skills and problem solving 3-5 builds on these foundational concepts and focuses on multiplication and division of whole numbers and fractions - concepts, skills and problems solving There is very little data work in K-5, and what’s there is tightly connected with core progressions in number systems, the number line, and problem solving using the four operations Concentration on arithmetic and the aspects of measurement that support it CCSS Communications Summit

24 CCSS Communications Summit Grade Level Focus Documents /default.aspx

25 Shift Two: 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 onto 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. CCSS Communications Summit

26 Coherence “The Standards are not so much built from topics as they are woven out of progressions.” Structure is the Standards, Publishers’ Criteria for Mathematics, Appendix CCSS Communications Summit /

27 CCSS Communications Summit Grade 3Grade 4Grade 5 Develop understanding of fraction as number. Build fractions from unit fractions by applying and extending previous understandings of fractions. Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to multiply and divide fractions.

28 K-5 – NBT Progression Document CCSS Communications Summit

29 Coherence Within Grades CCSS Communications Summit The standards make explicit connections at a single grade Reason with shapes and their attributes. 3.G.A Relate area to the operations of multiplication & addition. Understand properties of multiplication … 3.MD.C.7 3.OA.B

30 Shift Three: Rigor  The CCSSM require:  Solid conceptual understanding  Procedural skill and fluency  Application of mathematics to problem solving situations  In the major work of the grade, this requires equal intensity in time, activities, and resources in pursuit of all three. CCSS Communications Summit Equal intensity in conceptual understanding, procedural skill/fluency, and application

31 Conceptual Understanding is more than explaining CCSS Communications Summit What are two different equations with the same solution as 3(y – 1) = 8? Asking students to show work and explain can be informative, but it isn’t the only way to assess conceptual understanding and can become tiring for students.

32 Procedural Fluency is not all about Timed Tests CCSS Communications Summit “Reasoning and pattern searching are never facilitated by restricted time….strategy development and general number sense are the best contributors to fact mastery.” --Van de Walle

33 Required Fluencies in K-6 GradeStandardRequired Fluency K K.OA.5 Add/subtract within OA.6 Add/subtract within OA.2 2.NBT.5 Add/subtract within 20 (know single-digit sums from memory) Add/subtract within OA.7 3.NBT.2 Multiply/divide within 100 (know single-digit products from memory) Add/subtract within NBT.4 Add/subtract within 1,000, NBT.5 Multi-digit multiplication 6 6.NS.2,3 Multi-digit division Multi-digit decimal operations CCSS Communications Summit

34 Applications should be motivating for students CCSS Communications Summit What is the relationship between the height you drop a ball and it’s corresponding bounce height?

35 Standards for 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 CCSS Communications Summit Describes mathematical “habits of mind” that students at ALL grade levels should develop.

36 Seeing Structure CCSS Communications Summit

37 Communication IN and OUT  Who will be those key content people in your district, school, etc. to message around CCSS- Math?  Know the standards  Understanding the Shifts  Structures to provide opportunities for shared learning  Sensitive to audiences’ past math experiences  What is our message around math ?
