Understanding the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSSM)
History 2008 – National Math Advisory Panel Report K-8 mathematics education should strive for proficiency with fractions (including decimals, percents, and negative fractions) as a major goal – Common Core State Standards
Standards Implementation Plan for curriculum changes Grades K Grades 3-5 and HS Grades First Assessment on CCSS
CHANGES In comparison to the 2008 NJCCCS, the NJDOE has made the following codes: C = Currently required/very similar to required content + = New requirement, previously at a higher grade level - = New requirement, previously at a lower grade level N = New content, not previously required
WHERE are the CHANGES? Grade Code N
K-8 Mathematics Domains K Counting and Cardinality K – 5 Operations and Algebraic Thinking Number and Operations in Base Ten Measurement and Data Geometry 3 – 5 Number and Operations – Fractions 6 – 7 Ratio & Proportional Relationships 6 – 8 The Number System Expressions & Equations Geometry Statistics & Probability 8 Functions
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.
6-8 Mathematics Standards Features Understand ratio concepts Analyze proportional relationships Solve one-variable equations and inequalities Generate equivalent expressions Describe geometrical figures and relationships between them Understand statistical variability and characteristics of populations Investigate chance processes

Pedagogy The way that we teach mathematics has a significant impact on the understanding of concepts. We must strive to reach all students through conceptual development of topics, not rote memorization.
