Understanding Rigor in the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics
Using the 2013-2014 Course Descriptions
What is meant by rigor?
The CCSSM require a balance of:
Pursuit of all three requires equal intensity in time, activities, and resources.
Mathematics Fluency: A Balanced Approach (1:56)
Assuming a 60 minute math class:
10 minutes: Fluency Activities, formative assessment
20 minutes: Conceptual Development/Practice
20 minutes: Application
10 minutes: Review
