Structuring the mathematical practices  Bill McCallum

In the progressions project we’ve been discussing how best to represent the standards for mathematical practice. The practices are signposted throughout the documents, but we’ve also been thinking about how to provide some structure for the practice standards that will help people avoid fruitless tagging exercises in their efforts to integrate the practice standards into the content standards. If you think about it long enough you can associate just about any practice standard with any content standard, but this sort of matrix thinking can lead to a dilution of the force of the practice standards—if you try to do everything all the time, you end up doing nothing. This diagram is an attempt to provide some higher order structure to the practice standards, just as the clusters and domains provide higher order structure to the content standards. http://commoncoretools.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/practices.pdf

FOR K-8TH

Several mentioned more time to study/understand WHAT to teach as part of CCSS.  A good place for more detailed information about the mathematics of the content standards and what each means is part of the “Progression” documents being written by the CCSS authors.   You MIGHT want to visit those “Progressions” ---- http://commoncoretools.me/category/progressions/

 

FOR K-12--

LESSON PLANS from Lesson Planet.com--may be a resource for creating mini-units for standards that are missing or too shallow in your texts.

The National Science Digital Library (NSDL) Math Common Core collection features digital learning resources that address concept and skills components of the Math Common Core State Standards. The collection is organized by grade level and domain, as defined within the Common Core documents. Resources in this collection include lesson plans, simulations, problem sets with explanations, student activities that provide feedback, and other interactives. The collection will continue to grow as new resources are added regularly

MORE DESCRIPTION

PARCC (the OTHER testing consortium that Kansas. is NOT part of) has released draft frameworks for common core standards.  Lots of information!

http://commoncoretools.wordpress.com  Keep an eye on this for more info on the Standards progressions (final versions) being written by members of the original work team.  This is actually Bill McCallum’s site.  He is one of the main authors of the Math CCSS.  This site includes materials from the Illustrative Math Project which is a collection of sample tasks and problems (intended as a resource for interpreting standards with sample tasks/problems that capture that standard.  You can also find the standards in web form ---easy to use)

=============================================================

 Inside Mathematics is a professional resource for educators interested in improving students' mathematics learning and performance. This site features classroom examples of innovative teaching methods and insights into student learning, tools for mathematics instructionthat teachers can use immediately, and video tours of the ideas and materials on the site.

SMARTER BALANCE CONSORTIUM-- the group Kansas is working with on new state assessments

For those interested, SBAC just released the second draft of their math content specifications on their website.  You can find the new version online at: http://www.k12.wa.us/SMARTER/Resources.aspx

 

Content specifications from Smarter Balance (Dec. 2011 draft) includes a pool of 8th grade sample problems starting on page 70.
