6 CCSS Mathematical Practices OVERARCHING HABITS OF MIND 1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them 6. Attend to precision REASONING AND EXPLAINING 2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others MODELING AND USING TOOLS 4. Model with mathematics 5. Use appropriate tools strategically SEEING STRUCTURE AND GENERALIZING 7. Look for and make use of structure 8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning 6

7 Practices for Next Generation Science Standards 1.Asking questions (for science) and defining problems (for engineering) 2.Developing and using models 3.Planning and carrying our investigations 4.Analyzing and interpreting data 5.Using mathematics and computational thinking 6.Constructing explanations (for science) and designing solutions (for engineering) 7.Engaging in argument from evidence 8.Obtaining, evaluating and communicating information 7

8 Reading: text complexity and the growth of comprehension The Reading standards place equal emphasis on the sophistication of what students read and the skill with which they read. Standard 10 defines a grade-by- grade staircase of increasing text complexity that rises from beginning reading to the college and career readiness level. Whatever they are reading, students must also show a steadily growing ability to discern more from and make fuller use of text, including making an increasing number of connections among ideas and between texts, considering a wider range of textual evidence, and becoming more sensitive to inconsistencies, ambiguities, and poor reasoning in texts. Writing: text types, responding to reading, and research The Standards acknowledge the fact that whereas some writing skills, such as the ability to plan, revise, edit, and publish, are applicable to many types of writing, other skills are more properly defined in terms of specific writing types: arguments, informative/explanatory texts, and narratives. Standard 9 stresses the importance of the writing- reading connection by requiring students to draw upon and write about evidence from literary and informational texts. Because of the centrality of writing to most forms of inquiry, research standards are prominently included in this strand, though skills important to research are infused throughout the document. Speaking and Listening: flexible communication and collaboration Including but not limited to skills necessary for formal presentations, the Speaking and Listening standards require students to develop a range of broadly useful oral communication and interpersonal skills. Students must learn to work together, express and listen carefully to ideas, integrate information from oral, visual, quantitative, and media sources, evaluate what they hear, use media and visual displays strategically to help achieve communicative purposes, and adapt speech to context and task.

10 The California Algebra Experiment In 2012, 59% of all eighth grade students took the CST Algebra 1 exam and more than half were not successful. Even more will repeated the class again in high school. In 9 th grade, 49% of the students took CST Algebra 1 exam and 75% of those students did not pass. Research studies indicate nearly 65% of the students who were placed in Algebra in eighth grade are placed in the same level of Algebra in ninth grade. About 46% of the students who were successful in Algebra in the eighth grade (B- grade and Proficient) and who were placed again in Algebra in ninth grade were less successful in their second experience. It is Algebra Forever not Algebra for All 10

11 New K-12 Math Curriculum Inspired by The Common Core State Standards The Gates Foundation and the Pearson Foundation are funding a large scale project to create a system of courses to support the ELA and Mathematics CCSS. These will be a modular, electronic curriculum spanning all grade levels. A Santa Cruz based company, Learning In Motion, is working to write the lessons. 11

12 Think in Terms of Units Phil Daro has suggested that it is not the lesson or activity, but rather the unit that is the optimal grain-size for the learning of mathematics. Hence that was the starting point for our Scope and Sequence. Developers of High School: Patrick Callahan, Dick Stanley, David Foster, Brad Findell, Phil Daro, and Marge Cappo 12

20 Where to Accelerate? Can we live without understanding…. Integer and their operations Division of Fractions Ratio and proportional reasoning Expression, Equations and Inequalities Statistics 20

21 Where to Accelerate? Can we live without understanding…. Properties of rational numbers, percents, discounts, markups, etc. Rate and problems solving using rate Similarity, proportional reasoning Algebraic Modeling with Equations Probability Geometry: Angles, Volume, Surface Area, 3-D shapes 21

31 Performance Assessments To Inform Instruction And Measure Higher Level Thinking The Mathematics Assessment Resource Service (MARS) is an NSF funded collaboration between U.C. Berkeley and the Shell Centre in Nottingham England. The Assessments target grades 2- Geometry and are aligned with the State and NCTM National Math Standards. Ramp Access Top Core Entry level (access into task) Core Mathematics - (meeting standards) Top of Ramp (conceptually deeper, beyond) Task Design 31

32 Student tests are hand scored by classroom teachers trained and calibrated using standard protocols. Students in grades 2 through 10 th /11 th grade are administered performance exams (5 apprentice tasks per exam). District scoring leaders are trained in using task specific rubrics Student results are collected, analyzed, and reported by an independent data contractor. Random sample of student papers are audited and rescored by SJSU math & CS students. (Two reader correlation >0.95) Performance Exams 40,000 – 70,000 students per year since 1999 32
