“C” for Common Core

This three-minute video below explains how the Common Core State Standards

will help students achieve at high levels and help them learn what they need to

know to get to graduation and beyond.


A parent s guide lowell elementary pta meeting tuesday october 22 2013

Core standards adopted by 45 states, the District of Columbia,

4 territories, and the Department of Defense Education Activity.

The “Shifts”

  • ELA

  • Building Knowledge through content rich non-fiction.

  • Reading, writing and speaking grounded in evidence from the text (both literary and informational.)

  • Regular practice with complex text and its academic language.

  • Math

  • Focus strongly where the

  • Standards focus.

  • Coherence: Think across grade levels and link to major topics within grade levels.

  • Rigor: In major topics, pursue conceptual understanding, procedural skill and fluency, and application.


College and career readiness anchor standards

Common Core Mathematics

Content Standards

  • Big Ideas. Support Connections across the grades. (Domains)

  • Groups of related standards within the domain. (Clusters)

  • What students should understand and be able to do. (Standards)

  • Domains are the same at each grade level. Standards are different at each grade level.


Mathematical practice standards

Mathematical Practice Standards

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.


Content practice standards

Content + Practice Standards=

Together these standards address both “habits of mind”

that students should develop to foster

mathematical understanding and expertise and

skills and knowledge.

“What students need to know and be able to do.”

The mathematical content standards were built on progressions of topics across grade levels, informed by both research

on children’s cognitive development and by the

logical structure of mathematics.
