### Common Core Learning Standards for Math: Shifts & Priorities

TST BOCES Inquiry Team Training

August 22, 2011

Facilitated by Allison Sitts

TST BOCES Mathematics Instructional Specialist

Session Learning Targets

- Explore the six shifts that are associated with the transition to the Common Core Learning Standards for Mathematics
- Consider how the shifts will effect mathematics instruction in districts
- Review and understand the implications of the required fluencies expected by grade level
- Exposure to the priorities that have been suggested

6 Shifts

- Focus
- Coherence
- Fluency
- Understanding
- Application
- Dual-Intensity

Focus

- Focus on fewer topics, in greater depth
- Higher performing countries…
- …focus on fewer topics
- …share 3 topics in common

- Higher performing countries…

Whole Numbers

Operations

Quantities

Coherence

- Each concept in each grade builds on what you learned before
- Learn about related topics in a way that reinforces the core learning
- A constant effort to rethink what we learn in math, so it links to core understanding

Fluency

- Speed and accuracy
- Memorizing facts
- Kids do this at different rates, but it is important to insist on the ones that matter most for later, more complex math

Activity 1http://engageny.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/CCSSFluencies.pdf

- Turn to your neighbor and discuss the implications of the fluencies
- How can fluency effect more advanced math skills?
- Use the hand-out about fludencies to support your discussion

Deep Understandinghttp://engageny.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/CCSSFluencies.pdf

- Flexible mastery of a small number of topics which can be applied to a variety of problems
- The price of fewer is deeper

Fact:

Hong Kong only covers 50% of topics on the TIMSS assessments. We cover 100%.

Applicationhttp://engageny.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/CCSSFluencies.pdf

- Capacity to apply learning in unique situations

Dual Intensityhttp://engageny.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/CCSSFluencies.pdf

Powerful memories and automaticity

Application to diverse, unexpected circumstances

Activity 2http://engageny.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/CCSSFluencies.pdf

- For each shift, identify:
- What the shift will demand of teachers
- Why the shift is critical to the success of the Common Core

- Use the prompts to continue discussions

Priorities for Focushttp://engageny.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/CCSSFluencies.pdf

- Collaboratively written by the authors of the common core
- Can be used to aid in curricular planning
