2 The Common Core State Standards Initiative 2 Beginning in the spring of 2009, Governors and State Commissioners of Education from 48 states, 2 territories and the District of Columbia committed to developing a common core of state K-12 English language arts (ELA) and mathematics standards. The Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI) is a state-led effort coordinated by the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO).

3 Why Common Core State Standards? 3

4 Why Common Core State Standards? 4 Preparation: The standards are college- and career-ready. They will help prepare students with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in education and training after high school. Competition: The standards are internationally benchmarked. Common standards will help ensure our students are globally competitive. Equity: Expectations are consistent for all – and not dependent on a student’s zip code. Clarity: The standards are focused, coherent, and clear. Clearer standards help students (and parents and teachers) understand what is expected of them. Collaboration: The standards create a foundation to work collaboratively across states and districts, pooling resources and expertise, to create curricular tools, professional development, common assessments and other materials.

8 Key Questions What is the current state of mathematics performance… In the United States compared to other nations? In the United States? In New York State compared to other states? In your school/district compared to other districts in New York State? 8

9 What is TIMSS? The Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) compares math and science achievement of 4th and 8th graders internationally.Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study TIMSS is closely linked to the curricula of the participating countries, providing an indication of the degree to which students have learned concepts in mathematics and science they have encountered in school To date, more than 50 countries have participated. 9 Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study(TIMSS).

12 What is PISA PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) is an international study which began in the year It aims to evaluate education systems worldwide by testing the skills and knowledge of 15- year-old students in participating countries/economies. Since the year 2000 over 70 countries and economies have participated in PISA. 12 Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA). (n.d.).

13 PISA PISA assesses how far students near the end of compulsory education have acquired some of the knowledge and skills that are essential for full participation in society. In all cycles, the domains of reading, mathematical and scientific literacy are covered not merely in terms of mastery of the school curriculum, but in terms of important knowledge and skills needed in adult life. In the PISA 2003 cycle, an additional domain of problem solving was introduced to continue the examination of cross-curriculum competencies. Take the Test 13

20 Common Core Learning Standards 20

21 Instructional Shifts... 21

22 Shift 1 Focus Teachers use the power of the eraser and significantly narrow and deepen the scope of how time and energy is spent in the math classroom. They do so in order to focus deeply on only the concepts that are prioritized in the standards so that students reach strong foundational knowledge and deep conceptual understanding and are able to transfer mathematical skills and understanding across concepts and grades. 22

23 The Importance of Focus in Mathematics First-year college remediation challenges Mismatch between higher education and K more mastery of fewer topics vs. covering more Focus as it relates to teachers' needs to build a solid foundation in early grades Solid early foundation enables greater success later 23 Zimba, J., & McCallum, W.

25 Shift 2 Coherence Principals and teachers carefully connect the learning within and across grades so that, for example, fractions or multiplication spiral across grade levels and students can build new understanding onto foundations built in previous years. Teachers can begin to count on deep conceptual understanding of core content and build on it. Each standard is not a new event, but an extension of previous learning. 25

26 The Importance of Coherence in Mathematics Mathematics consists of pieces that make sense; they are not just independent manipulation/skills to be practiced and memorized – as perceived by many students. These individual pieces progress through different grades (in organized structures we called “flows”) and can/should be unified together into a coherent whole. Algebra as an example 26 Zimba, J., & McCallum, W. (n.d.). The Importance of Coherence In Mathematics [Motion picture].

27 Dividing Fractions Imagine you are beginning to teach students division with fractions. What would you do to introduce this concept to students? What is the common phrase we hear teachers say when teaching students to divide fractions? Why does it work? 27

28 Knowing and Teaching Elementary Mathematics – Liping Ma How many different ways can we solve/model the problem 1 ¾ ÷ ½ ? Let’s share and record all the various ways. (i.e., number lines, measuring cups, manipulatives, etc) 28

29 Knowing and Teaching Elementary Mathematics – Liping Ma Measurement Model – “How many ½s in 1 ¾?” (e.g., apples, graham crackers, piece of wood) Partitive Model – “Finding a number such that ½ of it is 1 ¾” (e.g., box of candy, cake, pizza, distance) Factors and Product – “Find a factor that when multiplied by ½ will make 1 ¾” (e.g., area of a rectangle) 29

30 Knowing and Teaching Elementary Mathematics – Liping Ma The meaning of division by fractions Meaning of division with whole numbers The concept of inverse operations Meaning of multiplication with whole numbers Meaning of multiplication with fractions Concept of fractionConcept of unit Meaning of addition 30

31 Shift 3 Fluency Students are expected to have speed and accuracy with simple calculations; teachers structure class time and/or homework time for students to memorize, through repetition, core functions such as multiplication tables so that they are more able to understand and manipulate more complex concepts. 31

34 Mathematical Fluency: A Balanced Approach Balanced between procedural fluency and conceptual understanding, with examples Building on required fluencies 34 McCallum, B., & Zimba, J. (n.d.). Mathematics Fluency A Balance Approach [Video file]. Retrieved from

35 Shift 4 Deep Understanding Teachers teach more than “how to get the answer” and instead support students’ ability to access concepts from a number of perspectives so that students are able to see math as more than a set of mnemonics or discrete procedures. Students demonstrate deep conceptual understanding of core math concepts by applying them to new situations. as well as writing and speaking about their understanding. 35

36 Deep Conceptual Understanding McDonald’s Claim Wikipedia reports that 8% of all Americans eat at McDonalds every day. In the U.S., there are approximately 310 million people and 12,800 McDonalds. Do you believe the Wikipedia report to be true? Create a mathematical argument to justify your position. 36

37 Shift 5 Applications Students are expected to use math and choose the appropriate concept for application even when they are not prompted to do so. Teachers provide opportunities at all grade levels for students to apply math concepts in “real world” situations. Teachers in content areas outside of math, particularly science, ensure that students are using math – at all grade levels – to make meaning of and access content. 37

38 Shift 6 Dual Intensity Students are practicing and understanding. There is more than a balance between these two things in the classroom – both are occurring with intensity. Teachers create opportunities for students to participate in “drills” and make use of those skills through extended application of math concepts. The amount of time and energy spent practicing and understanding learning environments is driven by the specific mathematical concept and therefore, varies throughout the given school year. 38

41 The Mathematics Standards and the Shifts They Require Calls for Conceptual Understanding, Procedural Fluency, and Problem Solving Content and skills need to be connected with the Standards of Mathematical Practices Greater focus and better coherence 41 Zimba, J. (n.d.). The Mathematics Standards and the Shifts They Require [Video file].

42 Assessment of Learning The Next Shift 42

43 NYS Assessment Transition : the content of the NYS Grades 3-8 Mathematics tests will be aligned to the NYS P-12 Common Core Learning Standards for Mathematics First administration of the Algebra I and Geometry Regents Exams First administration of the Algebra II and Trig Regents Exams transition to PARCC Assessments pending Board of Regents approval 43

44 What will assessment look like in relation to the Common Core Shifts? 44 *Recent update for Shift 3 In a memo dated March 2012, Deputy Commission Slentz stated the following: Grade 6 students must have the use of a four-function calculator with a square root key or a scientific calculator for the entire test. (Schools may choose which type they purchase.)
