Central Carolina RESA Meeting

January 10, 2012

Implementation of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Triangle High Five Math Collaborative

  • Chapel Hill-Carrboro

  • Durham

  • Johnston

  • Orange

  • Wake

History of Math Collaboration

  • Began with Algebra Readiness Summit

  • Formed PLC to discuss issues surrounding the Common Core

District Collaboration Goals

  • Collaborate on the development of dissemination materials with the help of business partners

  • Seek agreement on middle and high school course names, essential content, and pre-requisites

  • Agree to phase in High School courses

  • Seek agreement on Gifted course offerings and pathway adjustment due to the increased rigor of the CCSS

  • Collaborate on the development of middle school compacted curriculum

  • Seek agreement on pacing and unit content for courses

  • Share resources and materials developed for teachers to implement the new standards

Overview of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Shifts in the Learning & Teaching of Mathematics

  • Focus

  • Coherence

  • Computational and Procedural Fluency

  • Deep Conceptual Understanding

  • Applications (Modeling)

  • Balanced Emphasis

Design and Organization

Standards for Mathematical Practice

  • Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

  • Reason abstractly and quantitatively.

  • Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.

  • Model with mathematics.

  • Use appropriate tools strategically.

  • Attend to precision.

  • Look for and make use of structure.

  • Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

Describe the characteristics and habits of mind of a mathematically proficient student

Carry across all grade levels

Standards for Mathematical Content

  • Organized into domains that progress over several grades

  • K-8 standards presented by grade level

  • High school standards presented by conceptual category:

    • Number and Quantity

    • Algebra

    • Functions

    • Modeling

    • Geometry

    • Statistics and Probability

  • Each grade level or conceptual category has an introduction and overview


Design and Organization

  • Standards define what students should understand and be able to do

  • Clusters are groups of related standards

  • Domainsare larger groups that progress across grades




Where we are . . .

Where we are going . . .

Precalculus, Calculus, Advanced Statistics, Discrete Math, Advanced Quantitative Reasoning, etc.

1st three

years of

high school


Why the name change?

  • Name change heralds the shift in the philosophy, content, and instructional expectations for math students

  • Numerous names across the state that do not communicate the content of the course clearly

  • Helps parents understand, monitor, and advocate for the needs of their children

  • Helps deal with issues of a mobile student population

  • “PLUS” in the course title reflects the nomenclature used in the CCSS

Math I Collaboration

  • Multi-district work day Dec. 9th

  • Math I standards divided into 8 units

  • Sequencing agreed upon

  • Next work day Feb. 3rd

  • Curriculum writers will collaborate across districts

Common Core Math I Units

  • Unit 1: One-Variable Statistics

  • Unit 2: One-Variable Equations & Inequalities

  • Unit 3: Functions

  • Unit 4: Linear Functions

  • Unit 5: Exponential Functions

  • Unit 6: Quadratic Functions

  • Unit 7: Systems of Equations & Inequalities

  • Unit 8: Two-Variable Statistics

Next Steps

  • Determine which standards to place in Common Core Math II and Common Core Math III

  • Determine which plus standards to place in CC Math II PLUS and CC Math III PLUS

  • Develop resources to supplement Geometry and Algebra II so that students taking Algebra I in 8th grade are prepared to take the SBAC test when they are juniors
