The Common Core State Standards Initiative

Beginning in the spring of 2009, Governors and State Commissioners of Education from 48 states, 2 territories and the District of Columbia committed to developing a common core of state K-12 English language arts (ELA) and mathematics standards.

The Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI) is a state-led effort coordinated by the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO).

Why Common Core State Standards?

- Preparation: The standards are college- and career-ready. They will help prepare students with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in education and training after high school.
- Competition: The standards are internationally benchmarked. Common standards will help ensure our students are globally competitive.
- Equity: Expectations are consistent for all – and not dependent on a student’s zip code.
- Clarity: The standards are focused, coherent, and clear. Clearer standards help students (and parents and teachers) understand what is expected of them.
- Collaboration: The standards create a foundation to work collaboratively across states and districts, pooling resources and expertise, to create curricular tools, professional development, common assessments and other materials.

What is TIMSS?

The Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) compares math and science achievement of 4th and 8th graders internationally.

TIMSS is closely linked to the curricula of the participating countries, providing an indication of the degree to which students have learned concepts in mathematics and science they have encountered in school

To date, more than 50 countries have participated.

What is PISA

PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) is an international study which began in the year 2000. It aims to evaluate education systems worldwide by testing the skills and knowledge of 15-year-old students in participating countries/economies. Since the year 2000 over 70 countries and economies have participated in PISA.

12

PISA

PISA assesses how far students near the end of compulsory education have acquired some of the knowledge and skills that are essential for full participation in society. In all cycles, the domains of reading, mathematical and scientific literacy are covered not merely in terms of mastery of the school curriculum, but in terms of important knowledge and skills needed in adult life.

In the PISA 2003 cycle,an additional domain of problem solving was introduced to continue the examination ofcross-curriculum competencies.

Shift 1 Focus

Teachers use the power of the eraser and significantly narrow and deepen the scope of how time and energy is spent in the math classroom. They do so in order to focus deeply on only the concepts that are prioritized in the standards so that students reach strong foundational knowledge and deep conceptual understanding and are able to transfer mathematical skills and understanding across concepts and grades.

25

The Importance of Focus in Mathematics

- First-year college remediation challenges
- Mismatch between higher education and K-12 -- more mastery of fewer topics vs. covering more
- Focus as it relates to teachers\' needs to build a solid foundation in early grades
- Solid early foundation enables greater success later

26

Shift 2 Coherence

Principals and teachers carefully connect the learning within and across grades so that, for example, fractions or multiplication spiral across grade levels and students can build new understanding onto foundations built in previous years. Teachers can begin to count on deep conceptual understanding of core content and build on it. Each standard is not a new event, but an extension of previous learning.

28

The Importance of Coherence in Mathematics

- Mathematics consists of pieces that make sense; they are not just independent manipulation/skills to be practiced and memorized – as perceived by many students.
- These individual pieces progress through different grades (in organized structures we called “flows”) and can/should be unified together into a coherent whole.
- Algebra as an example

The Structure is the Standardsby Phil Daro, Bill McCallum, Jason Zimba

A Grecian Urn

You have just purchased an expensive Grecian urn and asked the dealer to ship it to your house. He picks up a hammer, shatters it into pieces, and explains that he will send one piece a day in an envelope for the next year. You object; he says “don’t worry, I’ll make sure that you get every single piece, and the markings are clear, so you’ll be able to glue them all back together. I’ve got it covered.” Absurd, no? But this is the way many school systems require teachers to deliver mathematics to their students; one piece (i.e. one standard) at a time. They promise their customers (the taxpayers) that by the end of the year they will have “covered” the standards…

Dividing Fractions

Imagine you are beginning to teach students division with fractions. What would you do to introduce this concept to students?

32

Knowing and Teaching Elementary Mathematics – Liping Ma

What is the common phrase we hear teachers

say when teaching students to divide fractions?

Ma, L. (2010). Knowing and Teaching Elementary Mathematics: Teachers\' Understanding of Fundamental Mathematics in China and the United States (Studies in Mathematical Thinking and Learning Series) (2nd ed.). Routledge.

34

Knowing and Teaching Elementary Mathematics – Liping Ma

Most of the Chinese teachers use the phrase “dividing by a number is equivalent to multiplying by its reciprocal” instead of what many U.S. teachers say “invert and multiply.”

35

Knowing and Teaching Elementary Mathematics – Liping Ma

Dividing by 2 is the same as multiplying by ½, therefore dividing by ½ is the same as multiplying by 2.

36

Knowing and Teaching Elementary Mathematics – Liping Ma

How many different ways can we solve the problem 1 ¾ ÷ ½ ?

Let’s share and record all the various ways.

37

Knowing and Teaching Elementary Mathematics – Liping Ma

Measurement Model – “How many

½s in 1 ¾?” (e.g., apples, graham crackers, piece of wood)

Partitive Model – “Finding a number such that ½ of it is 1 ¾” (e.g., box of candy, cake, pizza, distance)

Factors and Product – “Find a factor that when multiplied by ½ will make 1 ¾” (e.g., area of a rectangle)

38

The meaning of division by fractions

Meaning of division with whole numbers

The concept of inverse operations

Meaning of multiplication with whole numbers

Meaning of multiplication with fractions

Concept of fraction

Concept of unit

Meaning of addition

Knowing and Teaching Elementary Mathematics – Liping Ma39

Shift 3 Fluency

Students are expected to have speed and accuracy with simple calculations; teachers structure class time and/or homework time for students to memorize, through repetition, core functions such as multiplication tables so that they are more able to understand and manipulate more complex concepts.

44

Shift 4 Deep Understanding

Teachers teach more than “how to get the answer” and instead support students’ ability to access concepts from a number of perspectives so that students are able to see math as more than a set of mnemonics or discrete procedures. Students demonstrate deep conceptual understanding of core math concepts by applying them to new situations. as well as writing and speaking about their understanding.

Deep Conceptual Understanding

McDonald’s Claim

Wikipedia reports that 8% of all Americans eat at McDonalds every day.

In the U.S., there are approximately 310 million people and 12,800 McDonalds.

Do you believe the Wikipedia report to be true? Create a mathematical argument to justify your position.

47

Shift 5 Applications

Students are expected to use math and choose the appropriate concept for application even when they are not prompted to do so. Teachers provide opportunities at all grade levels for students to apply math concepts in “real world” situations. Teachers in content areas outside of math, particularly science, ensure that students are using math – at all grade levels – to make meaning of and access content.

Shift 6 Dual Intensity

Students are practicing and understanding. There is more than a balance between these two things in the classroom – both are occurring with intensity. Teachers create opportunities for students to participate in “drills” and make use of those skills through extended application of math concepts. The amount of time and energy spent practicing and understanding learning environments is driven by the specific mathematical concept and therefore, varies throughout the given school year.

The Mathematics Standards and the Shifts They Require

- Calls for Conceptual Understanding, Procedural Fluency, and Problem Solving
- Content and skills need to be connected with the Standards of Mathematical Practices
- Greater focus and better coherence

New York State Assessment Transition Plan: ELA and Mathematics

As of October 12, 2012 (Subject to Revision)

1 The PARCC assessments are scheduled to be operational in 2014-15 and are subject to adoption by the New York State Board of Regents. The PARCC assessments are still in development. All PARCC assessments will be aligned to the Common Core.

2 Funding Pending.

3 The PARCC consortium is developing ELA and mathematics assessments that will cover grades 3-11. New York State will continue to monitor the development of these assessments to determine how the PARCC assessments might intersect with the Regents Exams. Note that all new Regents Exams and PARCC assessments will be implemented starting with the end-of-year administration, rather than the winter or summer administrations.

4 The names of New York State’s Mathematics Regents Exams are expected to change to reflect the new alignment of these assessments to the Common Core. For additional information about the upper-level mathematics course sequence and related standards, see the “Traditional Pathway” section of Common Core Mathematics Appendix A (http://engageny.org/news/traditional-course-pathway-for-high-school-mathematics-courses-approved/).

5 This transition plan is specific to the NYSAA in ELA and mathematics.

6 New York State is a member of the NCSC national alternate assessment consortium that is engaged in research and development of new alternate assessments for alternate achievement standards. The NCSC assessments are scheduled to be operational in 2014-15 and are subject to adoption by the New York State Board of Regents.

56

What will assessment look like in relation to the Common Core Shifts?

*Recent update for Shift 3

In a memo dated March 2012, Deputy Commission Slentz stated the following:

Grade 6 students must have the use of a four-function calculator with a square

root key or a scientific calculator for the entire test. (Schools may choose which

type they purchase.)
