Why move to Common Core? 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.
Post Secondary Study Is More Important Than Ever The Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce shows that by 2018, we will need 22 million new college degrees — but will fall short of that number by at least 3 million post-secondary degrees, Associate’s or better.
CCSS: Change is coming On October 28, 2010 CCSS in Mathematics were adopted by the Oregon State Board of Education The CCSS will replace Oregon’s 2007/2009 adopted standards Standards are K-12
Oregon Math Crosswalk The findings include: Most of the content found in the current Oregon standards is also found in the CCSSM. A significant amount of content currently found in Oregon’s high school mathematics standards is found at the middle school level in the CCSSM, which will necessitate a shift in instruction. Over 50% of the CCSS high school content is currently found in Oregon’s Advanced Knowledge and Skills, which are not standards in Oregon’s current system.
K-8 Mathematics Overview The K- 8 mathematics standards: The K-5 standards provide students with a solid foundation in whole numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions and decimals. The 6-8 standards describe robust learning in geometry, algebra, and probability and statistics. Modeled after the focus of standards from high- performing nations, the standards for grades 7 and 8 include significant algebra and geometry content. Students who have completed 7th grade and mastered the content and skills will be prepared for algebra, in 8th grade or after.
High School Mathematics Overview The high school mathematics standards: Call on students to practice applying mathematical ways of thinking to real world issues and challenges Require students to develop a depth of understanding and ability to apply mathematics to novel situations, as college students and employees regularly are called to do Emphasize mathematical modeling, the use of mathematics and statistics to analyze empirical situations, understand them better, and improve decisions Identify the mathematics that all students should study in order to be college and career ready
For K-12 Mathematics Standards for Mathematical Practice Describe mathematical “habits of mind” Standards for mathematical proficiency: reasoning, problem solving, modeling, decision making, and engagement Connect with content standards in each grade Standards for Mathematical Practice will be included in both Formative and Summative Assessments.
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.
CCSS - Assessment SBAC: SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium In 2010 SBAC received a $176 million Race to the Top grant to develop CCSS assessments Over 30 states are part of SBAC, including governing and advisory states (Oregon is a governing state) Assessments are scheduled to be available in 2014- 15 (this year’s 7th graders will be in 11 th grade)
CCSS - Assessment Assessments will include the required summative assessment adaptive, based on OAKS adaptive, based on OAKS will test content and mathematical practices will test content and mathematical practices taken by students no more than twice in a school year AND only during the last 3 months of the year taken by students no more than twice in a school year AND only during the last 3 months of the year optional formative, or benchmark, assessments a variety of tools, processes and practices that teachers may use in planning and implementing informal, ongoing assessment
CCSS Impact on Middle and High School Final ODE implementation plan not released yet (draft was released in October) Tentative PPS plan K – 2 moves completely to the CCSSM in 2011-2012K – 2 moves completely to the CCSSM in 2011-2012 6 th grade may move to CCSSM in 2011-20126 th grade may move to CCSSM in 2011-2012 First phase of changes for HS will likely occur in 2012-13 First phase of changes for HS will likely occur in 2012-13 Teacher workgroup this summer to make recommendations on 6-12 course trajectories Teacher workgroup this summer to make recommendations on 6-12 course trajectories Recommendations brought to principals in the fall for feedback Recommendations brought to principals in the fall for feedback
