Q & A

Standards that provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn

Replaced the Washington state and Lake Washington School District standards for English/Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics.

Full implementation of the new standards, including new state standardized tests, will be complete by the 2014-15 school year.

Written to:

• Be rigorous

• Prepare students for college

• Prepare students to compete in a global economy

CCSS focus on:

• Problem solving

• Critical thinking skills.

These standards assist Lake Washington School District in its vision:

• Prepared for college

• Prepared for the global workplace

• Prepared for personal success

Revised to align with CCSS in Mathematics and English Language Arts

Provides parents a snapshot of how their student/s are currently performing as measured against the CCSS

Changes to Report Card:

• Interdisciplinary Skills and Attributes

• Math

• - Counting and Cardinality (kindergarten)

• - Numbers and Operation in Base Ten

• - Numbers and Operation- Fractions

• - Geometry

• - Measurement and Data

• - Operations and Algebraic Thinking

• - Mathematical Practices

Difference between ”Conceptually” and “Rote”

• Students should have a solid understanding of how numbers work together and why.

• If students just memorize facts, there’s no “application” of thinking to take them to another concept of math.

• For example: students learn the strategy of “making 10” to add. By doing this, they are building understanding of base 10 and can use this later with algebra, multiplication, etc.

• Part – Part – Whole:

• (Part)+(Part)=(Whole)

• (Whole)-(Part)=(Part)

• Making a ten

(using ten frames):

• Beginning mental math strategies:

• Doubles: 5+5=10

• Doubles +1: 4+5=? ... 4+4=8, 8+1=9, so 4+5=9

• Doubles +2: 6+8=? ... 6+6=12, 12+2=14,

so, 6+8=14

• Fact Families (related facts):

• 3+8=11

• 8+3=11

• 11-3=8

• 11-8=3

• - Continue Learning Yourself

• - Be a Researcher

• - Be a Communicator

• Spot Check Homework

• Look over Quizzes

• Find Ways to Motivate

• Communicate Concerns

• Online Math Games
