What students should be able to do…
Understand is used in these standards to mean that students can explain the concept with mathematical reasoning, including concrete illustrations, mathematical representations, and example applications.
Proficient students of all ages expect mathematics to make sense. They take an active stance in solving mathematical problems. When faced with a non-routine problem, they have the courage to plunge in and try something, and they have the procedural and conceptual tools to continue. They are experimenters and inventors, and can adapt known strategies to new problems. They think strategically.”
Common Core State Standards
Shift 1: Focus
Prioritized concepts leading to strong foundational knowledge and understanding will be the focus of instruction and assessments. Other standards will be deemphasized.
Shift 2: Coherence
Carefully reflect the progression of content and concepts as depicted in the standards on and across grade levels.
Shift 3: Fluency
It is expected that students possess the required fluencies as articulated through grade 8 with building understanding and an ability to manipulate complex concepts.
Shift 4: Deep Understanding
Ability to access and apply concepts from a number of perspectives in both speaking and writing rather than as a right answer.
Shift 5: Application
Connecting content with fluency to employ to solve real-world problems.
Shift 6: Dual Intensity Practice and understanding both occur with intensity.
We want your children to be problem solvers, to help them develop number sense and fluency.
What is number sense?
Number Sense refers to a person’s understanding of number concept, operations and applications of number and operations. It includes the ability and inclination to use this understanding in flexible ways to make mathematical judgments and to develop useful strategies for handling numbers and operations. A person with good number sense has the ability to use numbers and quantitative methods to communicate, process, and interpret information.
Seeing math as the study of relationships enables us to see structural logic rather than just a series of random facts and procedures.
