2History 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.2010 – Common Core State Standards
3Standards Implementation Plan for curriculum changesGrades K-2Grades 3-5 and HSGrades 6-8First Assessment on CCSS
4CHANGESIn 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 levelN = New content, not previously required

7Standards 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 mathematics5. 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.
86-8 Mathematics Standards Features Understand ratio conceptsAnalyze proportional relationshipsSolve one-variable equations and inequalitiesGenerate equivalent expressionsDescribe geometrical figures and relationships between themUnderstand statistical variability and characteristics of populationsInvestigate chance processes
21PedagogyThe 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.
