COHERENCE

## The importance of Coherent Lessons in HIGH school Mathematics

Summer 2014

SHIFTS

COHERENCE

• Coherence comes from the verb to cohere, which means:

• To stick together in a way that resists separation;

• To be logically linked and naturally related.

• Think of Rice Krispies Treats…

We want our mathematics curriculum to have coherence… related concepts that stick together in a way that is obvious, understandable, connected, and reliable… for teachers and students alike!

### COHERENCE

A purposeful placement of standards to create logical sequences of content topics that bridge across the grades, as well as across standards within each grade.

TODAY’S OUTCOME

Participants will:

Explore in depth the “shift” of COHERENCE and its impact on mathematics content, instruction, andassessmentof the Maryland CCR Standards in mathematics.

### Four Corners

Teacher, Not HS Math

HS Math Teacher, taught Functions

HS Math Teacher, hasn’t taught Functions

Not a Teacher

### COHERENCE

CONTENT

The writers of the CCSS:

• Built COHERENCE into the content standards.

In the following task from Illustrative Mathematics, complete the following steps:

List all of the mathematics concepts/skills you used.

Write down the grade at which the concepts/skills are taught and the applicable domain, cluster, or standard.

List mathematics concepts/skills in later grades/courses that build upon/expand the information from #2.

Reflect on what you just have written. What do you notice about the task’s reliance on COHERENCE?

Parking Lot!

A parking lot charges \$0.50 for each half hour or fraction thereof, up to a daily maximum of \$10. Let C(t) be the cost in dollars of parking for minutes.

INSTRUCTION

An equipment rental company has 2 different penalty options for returning a piece of equipment late:

Option 1: On day 1, the penalty is \$10. On day 𝟐, the penalty is \$2𝟎. On day 3, the penalty is \$30. On day 4, the penalty is \$4𝟎and so on, increasing by \$10 each day the equipment is late.

Company 2: On day 1, the penalty is \$𝟎.𝟎𝟏. On day 𝟐, the penalty is \$𝟎.𝟎3. On day 3, the penalty is \$𝟎.09. On day 4, the penalty is \$𝟎.27 and so on, triplingin amount each additional day late.

Jim rented a backhoe using option because he thought it had the better late return policy. The job he was doing with the backhoe took longer than he expected, but it did not concern him because the late penalty seemed so reasonable. When he returned the backhoe 12 days late, he was shocked by the penalty fee. What did he pay, and what would he have paid if he had used Option 1 instead?

INSTRUCTION

Write the formula for the sequence in option 1.

Describe the sequence.

Write a formula for the sequence in option 2.

Describe the sequence.

5. Which of the 2 options grows more quickly? Why?

ASSESSMENT

Evidence of Coherencein assessment is not tremendously different from evidence of coherencein classroom instruction.

COHERENCE

ASSESSMENT

High School Content

Interpreting Functions (F-IF)

• Major- Understand the concept of a function an due function notation

• Interpret functions that arise in applications in terms of context

• Supporting - Analyze functions using different representations

Building Functions(F-BF)

• Supporting - Build a function that models a relationship between two quantities

• Additional- Build new function from existing functions

### COHERENCE

• Which other Standards for Mathematical Practice are assessed in this task? MP6- Attend to Precision

• Content standards F-­‐IF.9. Compare

• properties of two functions each represented in a different way(algebraically, graphically,

• Numerically in tables, or by verbal

• descriptions).

• (According to PARCC)

ASSESSMENT

### COHERENCE

• Type I-Balance of conceptual understanding,

• fluency, and application

• Type I- Machine scorable, innovative computer-based formats

• Claim A- Major content with connections to

• practices

• Scoring- Full credit requires selecting correct

• can be given for each answer that is correct.

• (According to PARCC)

ASSESSMENT

Shift of Coherence

In reality, the “key” to making the Shift of Coherencea success rests on the shoulders of curriculum writers and classroom teachers.
