**Why Common Core State Standards?**

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. Presenter Notes: This slide lists rationale as to why states agreed to collaborate and develop the CCSS. Suggested Slide Timing for Presentation: 2 minutes 4 4 4

**TIMSS 2007 Assessment 8th Grade Math**

Presenter Notes: The 2007 Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) is the fourth administration since 1995 of this international comparison. Developed and implemented at the international level by the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA)—an international organization of national research institutions and governmental research agencies—TIMSS is used to measure over time the mathematics and science knowledge and skills of fourth- and eighth-graders. This report focuses on the performance of U.S. students relative to that of their peers in other countries in 2007, and on changes in mathematics and science achievement since Thirty-six countries or educational jurisdictions participated at grade four in 2007, while 48 participated at grade eight. This report also describes additional details about the achievement of U.S. student subpopulations. All differences described in this report are statistically significant at the .05 level. No statistical adjustments to account for multiple comparisons were used. Note: This is 8th grade math data. Hyperlink: Key findings from the report include the following: • In 2007, the average mathematics scores of both U.S. fourth-graders (529) and eighth-graders (508) were higher than the TIMSS scale average (500 at both grades). The average U.S. fourth-grade mathematics score was higher than those of students in 23 of the 35 other countries, lower than those in 8 countries (all located in Asia or Europe), and not measurably different from those in the remaining 4 countries. At eighth grade, the average U.S. mathematics score was higher than those of students in 37 of the 47 other countries, lower than those in 5 countries (all of them located in Asia), and not measurably different from those in the other 5 countries. • Compared to 1995, the average mathematics scores for both U.S. fourth- and eighth-grade students were higher in At fourth grade, the U.S. average score in 2007 was 529, 11 points higher than the 1995 average of 518. At eighth grade, the U.S. average mathematics score in 2007 was 508, 16 points higher than the 1995 average of 492. • In 2007, 10 percent of U.S. fourth-graders and 6 percent of U.S. eighth-graders scored at or above the advanced international benchmark in mathematics. At grade four, seven countries had higher percentages of students performing at or above the advanced international mathematics benchmark than the United States: Singapore, Hong Kong SAR, Chinese Taipei, Japan, Kazakhstan, England, and the Russian Federation. Fourth-graders in these seven countries were also found to outperform U.S. fourth-graders, on average, on the overall mathematics scale. At grade eight, a slightly different set of seven countries had higher percentages of students performing at or above the advanced mathematics benchmark than the United States: Chinese Taipei, Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong SAR, Japan, Hungary, and the Russian Federation. These seven countries include the five countries that had higher average overall mathematics scores than the United States, as well as Hungary and the Russian Federation.

What is PISA 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. Presenter Notes: PISA - All students take pencil-and-paper tests, with assessments lasting a total of two hours for each student. For the PISA 2009 assessment, some participating countries/economies have also opted for an assessment of the reading of electronic texts. The PISA test is a very rigorous test for 15 year olds, and focused on mathematical application. Hyperlink: Presenter Directions: Test items are a mixture of multiple-choice items and questions requiring students to construct their own responses. The items are organized in groups based on a passage setting out a real-life situation. Suggested Slide Timing for Presentation: 30 seconds Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA).

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 Presenter Notes: PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) Please note that this is math data comparing 15 year olds. Take an interactive version of the tests online at You can also consult the publication 'Take the Test ‘ which lists all the publicly released items from the first three assessments (PISA 2000, 2003 and 2006).

PISA 2003 Presenter Notes: Only 4 percent of students in the combined Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) area, but more than 8 per cent in Belgium, Japan, Korea and the partner country Hong Kong-China – can perform the highly complex tasks required to reach Level 6. • About a third of OECD students can perform relatively difficult tasks at Levels 4, 5 or 6, but over 49 percent of students in Finland, Korea and the partner country Hong Kong-China can perform at least at Level 4. • About three-quarters of OECD students can perform at least mathematical tasks at Level 2 (shown above the central line in the graph). However, over a quarter of students are not proficient beyond Level 1 in Italy and Portugal, over a third in Greece and over half in Mexico and Turkey. A number of partner countries also have high numbers at Level 1 or below. • Eleven percent of students in OECD countries are not capable even of Level1 tasks. These students may still be able to perform basic mathematical operations, but were unable to utilize mathematical skills in a given situation, as required by the easiest PISA tasks. In some countries, over 20 percent are in this category.

22
Instructional Shifts . . . Presenter Notes: The six shifts represent key areas of focus as teachers and administrators work to implement the NYS P-12 New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards for Mathematics. Educators are likely to be at different stages in practicing these shifts, however, focusing on these areas can help schools and districts develop a common understanding of what is needed in mathematics instruction as they move forward with implementation. Presenter Directions: Ask participants to read the shifts, think about what the shifts mean, and what would these look like in a mathematics classroom? Suggested Slide Timing for Presentation: 2 minutes 22 22

23
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. Presenter Notes: Ask participants to read the shift, think about what the shift means, and what it would look like in a mathematics classroom. Suggested Slide Timing for Presentation: 3-4 minutes 23 23

24
**Reflection Read the “Shift” What does the “Shift” mean to you?**

What does it look like in mathematics classrooms (provide specific examples)? Presenter Notes: Ask participants to paraphrase the shift. Focus involves depth, not breadth. The intent of the NYS P-12 New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards for Mathematics is to use the power of the eraser and get rid of a curriculum that is “a mile wide and an inch deep.” Another key word in the definition is “prioritized”. Educators need to be sure they are spending more time on those concepts critical to mathematical proficiency. Students need to have deep conceptual understanding to be able to transfer skills across concepts and grades. Suggested Slide Timing for Presentation: 3-4 minutes 24 24

What does it look like in mathematics classrooms (provide specific examples)? Presenter Notes: Ask participants to paraphrase the shift. Instead of treating math in each grade as a series of disconnected topics, principals and teachers insure coherence by carefully connecting the learning within and across grades so that, for example, fractions or multiplication develop across grade levels and students can build new understanding onto foundations built in previous years. Each standard is not a new event, but an extension of previous learning. Suggested Slide Timing for Presentation: 3-4 minutes 28 28

**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 Presenter Notes: Bill McCallum, one of the authors of the CCSSM, discusses the importance of coherence and how we should instill in students an understanding why it all fits together (mathematics is not a subject that keeps branching out – it is based on underlying principles that help mathematics come together under one umbrella).

**The Structure is the Standards by Phil Daro, Bill McCallum, Jason Zimba**

A Grecian Urn You have just purchased an expensive Grecian urn and asked the dealer to ship it to your house. He picks up a hammer, shatters it into pieces, and explains that he will send one piece a day in an envelope for the next year. You object; he says “don’t worry, I’ll make sure that you get every single piece, and the markings are clear, so you’ll be able to glue them all back together. I’ve got it covered.” Absurd, no? But this is the way many school systems require teachers to deliver mathematics to their students; one piece (i.e. one standard) at a time. They promise their customers (the taxpayers) that by the end of the year they will have “covered” the standards… Presenter Notes: The article, The Structure is the Standards, was posted in the winter of 2012 on Bill McCallum’s blog and written by Bill McCallum, Phil Daro and Jason Zimba. The article allows for powerful conversations around the CCSS and the philosophy behind the development of those standards.

Dividing Fractions Imagine you are beginning to teach students division with fractions. What would you do to introduce this concept to students? Presenter Notes: The example that follows is from the book “Knowing and Teaching Elementary Mathematics” by Liping Ma. This book is a must read for mathematics educators. The presenter may want to seek assistance from a mathematics content specialist if the presenter is not familiar or comfortable with the mathematical content. Usually the answer to this question is procedural and the response is, “multiply by the reciprocal.” Others share a mnemonic device, such as “keep, switch, flip.” Suggested Slide Timing for Presentation: 1 minute 32 32

**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. Presenter Notes: Ask participants to read the shift, think about what the shift means, and what it would look like in a mathematics classroom. Students with conceptual understanding know more than isolated facts and methods - they understand why a mathematical idea is important and the contexts in which it is useful.

**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. Presenter Directions: Present this problem to the group. Ask them to work on the problem and then be prepared to share a justification. This leads to a great discussion and demonstrates how students could determine if this could possibly be true through collection of data. (The presenter may want to seek assistance from a mathematics content specialist if the presenter is not familiar or comfortable with the mathematical content.) Suggested Slide Timing for Presentation: 6-8 minutes Solution: 8% of 310 million = 24,800,000 24,800,000 /12,800 = people served per day Some participants may divide by 24 hours, 18 hours, etc. and justify their reasoning. 47 47

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. Presenter Directions: Ask participants to read the shift, think about what the shift means, and what it would look like in a mathematics classroom. Focus on some of the key vocabulary. Identify opportunities for students to apply math concepts in “real world” situations. Presenter Notes: The process of modeling that includes choosing and using appropriate mathematics and statistics to analyze and understand situations, is key in improving decisions as well as linking classroom mathematics and statistics to everyday life, work, and decision-making.

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. Presenter Directions: Ask participants to read the shift, think about what the shift means, and what it would look like in a mathematics classroom. Presenter Notes: Teachers struggle on balancing how much time they spend on procedural skills and the amount of time they are spending on deep conceptual understanding/application. They must find that balance. Students need to practice and understand mathematics Suggested Slide Timing for Presentation: 1 minute 50 50
