Network for New Science/Math Teachers September 24, 2010 Meeting 1, Year 2 Lexington, KY University of Kentucky Partnership Institute for Math & Science Education Reform Kentucky Department of Education
September, 2010 x –y = z Equation Game x + y = z xy = z 2x + y = z 2x - 2y = z
September, 2010 National Math Standards from NCTM 19892000 These documents began our conversations about expectations, and are important broad standards for us to consider.
September, 2010 Our recent Kentucky state standards … As a result of KERA, broad goals and academic expectations…. The content teachers are required to teach in KY…. The content students are assessed on in KY…. (subset of the Program of Studies)
September, 2010 -launched by Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center).
September, 2010 The standards: Are aligned with college and workforce expectations; Are clear, understandable and consistent; Include rigorous content and application of knowledge through high-order skills; Build upon strengths and lessons of current state standards; Are informed by standards in other top performing countries, and Are evidence-based.
September, 2010 solid foundation in whole numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions and decimals In Kindergarten-successful international recommendations about numbers corresponding to quantities, build on best state standards to navigate through fractions, negative numbers, and geometry, maintain a continuous progression from grade to grade
September, 2010 not only procedural skill but also conceptual understanding, absorbing the critical information they need to succeed at higher levels students who have mastered the content and skills through the 7th grade will be well- prepared for algebra in grade 8 robust and provide a coherent and rich preparation for high school mathematics
September, 2010 practice applying mathematical ways of thinking to real world issues and challenges; prepare students to think and reason mathematically rigorous definition of college and career readiness, students develop depth of understanding and ability to apply mathematics emphasize mathematical modeling throughout math content domains
September, 2010 The standards for mathematical Practice are important “processes and proficiencies” and describe varieties of expertise that mathematics educators at all levels should seek to develop in their students. See page 6. They are based on ideas important to mathematics education from – the NCTM process standards of: problem solving, reasoning and proof, communication, representation, and connections. the strands of mathematical proficiency specified in the National Research Council’s report Adding It Up: adaptive reasoning, strategic competence, conceptual understanding, (comprehension of mathematical concepts, operations and relations), procedural fluency, and (skill in carrying out procedures flexibly, accurately, efficiently and appropriately), productive disposition. (habitual inclination to see mathematics as sensible, useful, and worthwhile, coupled with a belief in diligence and one’s own efficacy).
September, 2010 #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. Posted on the overview page for every grade level!
