### 6th Grade Parent Meeting

East Cobb Middle School

March 14, 2012

Georgia Curriculums

Otherwise known as Common Core State Standards (CCSS)

Common Core State Mathematic Standards Initiative
• State-led
• Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO)
• National Governors Association (NGA)

Why do we need common standards? Why now?

Disparate standards

Different skills

Global competition

Preparation for career/college

Why is This Important for Students, Teachers, and Parents?

College and work

Consistent expectations

Clear, focused guide

Key Features of the Standards
• Rigorous content with application
• Evidence and research
• Internationally benchmarked

Focus in early grades on number

Even pacing

Using math and solving complex problems

Problem-solving and communication

Standards of Mathematical Practice
• Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. (ability to explain)
• Reason abstractly and quantitatively. (make sense of quantities)
• Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. (justify why)
• Model with mathematics. (graphs, formulas, etc…)
• Use appropriate tools strategically. (manipulatives, calculators, etc…)
• Attend to precision. (state meaning of symbols)
• Look for and make use of structure. (patterns)
• Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning. (repeated calculations-shortcuts)
Required High Quality Assessments

Summative Assessment Components:

• Performance-Based Assessment (PBA) at 75% of school year.
