Deep Dive into Math Shift 3RIGOR

Understanding Rigor in the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Using the 2013-2014 Course Descriptions

Shift #3: Rigor

What is meant by rigor?

The CCSSM require a balance of:

  • Solid conceptual understanding

  • Procedural skill and fluency

  • Application of skills in problem solving situations

    Pursuit of all three requires equal intensity in time, activities, and resources.




Conceptual Understanding

Today’s AgendaRigor in the CCSSM

  • Discuss Rigor and Find evidence of it within the 2013-2014 Florida Math Course Descriptions

  • Look specifically at fluency recommendations for Middle School

  • Determine what instructional shifts must occur as we increase the rigor

Building Fluency

Mathematics Fluency: A Balanced Approach (1:56)



FluencyWhat is it? Skill in carrying out proceduresflexibly, accurately, efficiently and appropriately

Deep UnderstandingWhat is it? Comprehension of Mathematical Concepts

Rigorous Group Discussion

  • Share examples of relevant, real-world experiences you use to make important connections to the concepts you teach.

  • How do these applications relate back to both fluency and conceptual understanding?

One Instructional Model

Assuming a 60 minute math class:

10 minutes: Fluency Activities, formative assessment

20 minutes: Conceptual Development/Practice

20 minutes: Application

10 minutes: Review

EXAMPLE:NY Common Core Mathematics Curriculum ModelLesson Structure

Rigor Breakdown - Sprints - Fluency in Action(6:07)


Florida 2013-2014 Math Instruction

  • Blended Instruction between the CCSS and a subset of NGSS (assessed by FCAT 2.0).

  • Grades 3-8 will be assessed by FCAT 2.0

  • Algebra I and Geometry will be assessed by the Florida EOC Exams.

    Transitional Shifts

  • Increased rigor

  • Classroom assessment to include PARCC-like tasks

Rigor Addressed in the Standards

  • Conceptual Understanding:

    6.NS.3.7 Understandordering and absolute value of rational numbers.

  • Procedural Skill and Fluency:

    7.EE.2.4a …..Solve word problems leading to equations of the form px + q = r and p(x + q) = r, where p, q, and r are specific rational numbers. Solve equations of these forms fluently…

  • Application:

    8.G.3.9 Know the formulas for the volumes of cones, cylinders, and spheres and use them to solvereal world and mathematical problems.

Locating Evidence of Rigor in the Standards


In grade-level teams:

  • Read each standard in your course description

  • Look for and underline or highlight key words or phrases indicating RIGOR

    • Understand

    • Fluently

    • Solve Real World problems or word problems

  • Post your questions and comments to the Parking Lot

RIGOR is a Balancing Act

Grade 6 Fluency Progression

Grade 7 Fluency Progression

Grade 8 Fluency Progression

Rethinking Rigor

  • Building Confidence through Problem Solving

  • Grades 3-5, Math, Number Fluency

Group Discussion

Where was the rigor?

What strategies and structures are applicable to MS?

What shifts need to happen in our classrooms?
