College and Career Readiness Mathematics at Middle School Poway Unified School District 2014

Purpose of this Presentation Share the PUSD math program for Grade 6 and 7 Develop an understanding of the expectations and options for students in math as they become college and career ready Answers questions about mathematics at Middle School in Poway Unified School District

“All students need a high quality mathematics program designed to prepare them to graduate from high school ready for college, career, and civic life.” - Mathematics Framework, Introduction Page 1 The California State Framework for Mathematics 2013

The development of strong, deep Algebraic thinking is the most important prerequisite for success in in higher level mathematical reasoning and application in problem solving in later life. Mastery and application of the basic components of math at middle school is critical for use in later career and life. Guiding Purposes in Middle School Math

Components of Math Instruction Precision in Math Procedures Deep Understandin g of Concepts Application in Real World Problems

2 Sets of Standards Standards of Mathematical Practice (What do we want students to do)… Mathematical Content Standards (What do we want students to know)..

Overarching Habits of Mind 1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. 6. Attend to precision 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. Reasoning and Explaining 2.
