CSU-MTEP New Mathematics Standards for K-12 and College Learning Margaret L. Kidd CSU Fullerton October 2014
MTE-Partnership is comprised of 38 teams across 30 states -- including 68 universities, 87 school systems, 9 community colleges, and other interested institutions -- working collaboratively to redesign secondary mathematics teacher preparation programs.38 teams across 30 states provides a coordinated research, development, and implementation effort for secondary mathematics teacher preparation programs in order to meet the challenges of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and to embody research and best practices in the field.
Goal to transform the preparation of secondary mathematics teachers to ensure teacher candidates can promote mathematical excellence in their future students, leading to college and career readiness as described in the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS-M) and other documents. an initiative of APLU (Association of Public and Land Grant Universities) – SMTI (Science & Mathematics Teacher Imperative) national effort to assist public universities to increase the number and improve the quality and diversity of science and mathematics teachers they prepare Initial planning and organization began in October 2011
The Partnership endeavors to: Build a national consensus on guiding principles for the preparation of mathematics teachers; Promote partnerships among all sectors throughout the teacher development process; Develop and coordinate a networked research and development agenda; Serve as a clearinghouse for model programs and practices; and Advocate for change at university, state and national levels.
Guiding Principles Building a national consensus on what effective secondary mathematics teacher preparation programs need to do in order to develop teacher candidates who promote mathematical excellence in their future students; Enhancing communication among the partners involved in a secondary mathematics teacher preparation program in order to clarify program goals, to assess the effectiveness of the program, and to guide program development and revision; Serving as the framework for an emerging national research and development agenda related to secondary teacher mathematics preparation; and Helping to organize the identification, development, and dissemination of resources supporting effective secondary mathematics teacher preparation programs.
Partnerships Guiding Principle 1 Partnerships as the Foundation Guiding Principle 2 Commitments by Institutions of Higher Education Guiding Principle 3 Commitments by School Districts and Schools
Teacher Candidate Knowledge and Skills Guiding Principle 4 Candidates’ Knowledge and Use of Mathematics Guiding Principle 5 Candidates’ Knowledge and Use of Educational Practices Guiding Principle 6 Clinical Experiences
Support Structures Guiding Principle 7 Student Recruitment, Selection, and Support Guiding Principle 8 Beginning and Inservice Teacher Support Guiding Principle 9 Tracking Success
CSU Participation Joined national MTE-P and held first meeting June 23, 2014 Includes all 22 CSU campuses who offer credential programs Two day conference on Carnegie Model tomorrow Professor directed with Fullerton as lead institution Support from CO, MSTI and Bechtel

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.
Different Way of Learning and Different Way of Teaching Teachers will now have to teach for understanding –that has not been the case “There is a difference in knowing how to do something and being able to explain it”
The Specific Recommendations in MET II Recommendation 1. Prospective teachers need mathematics courses that develop a solid understanding of the mathematics they will teach; Recommendation 2. Coursework that allows time to engage in reasoning, explaining, and making sense of the mathematics that prospective teachers will teach is needed to produce well- started beginning teachers;
The Specific recommendations in MET II: Recommendation 4. All courses and professional development experiences for mathematics teachers should develop the habits of mind of a mathematical thinker and problem-solver, such as reasoning and explaining, modeling, seeing structure, and generalizing. Courses should also use the flexible, interactive styles of teaching that will enable teachers to develop these habits of mind in their students (CBMS, 2012, pp. 18 – 19). Recommendation 3. Throughout their careers, teachers need opportunities for continued professional growth in their mathematical knowledge;
