Objectives
• Evaluate and modify CCLS Aligned Regional Plan
• Interpret Learning Standards and Teaching strategies
• Identify and fix fluency weaknesses
Aligning Algebra 2
• The pathways and courses are models, not mandates.
• Units may also be considered “critical areas” or “big ideas”
• Unit follows the order of the standards document in most case not the order in which they might be taught

Modeling (defined by a * in the CCSS)

High School Functions

High School Illustrative Sample Item

Seeing Structure in a Quadratic Equation

Math Sprints

Fluency in a minute

I
• “On your mark, get set, GO!”
• 1 minute, race against yourself, trying to answer as many as questions as possible.
• Internal voice, “Faster, Faster, Faster!”
II
• End of the minute: “Stop”
• Students ‘choral’response “Yes” if they got it correct
• If Wrong, circle and correct if time
• Teacher continues calling until he doesn’t hear “Yes”
• “Raise Hand if you got one or more right, 2,3,4… until winner(s) is determined.
• Applause
III
• Finish remainder of sprint
• Cool down period
• Let continue as long as most students are engaged
• Students who are finished can distribute material for next sprint
• Time constraints? Give one minute for step
IV
• Fast exercise, happy hands.
• Counting Forward and backward
V
• Second Sprint, same as the first
• Students Respond “Yes!”, until last “Yes”
• “Raise hands if they got more than “2,3,4…” correct?
• Recognize winner
Making a Sprint

Sprint A

Sprint B

3+1=

5+1=

7+1=

6+2=

16+5=

• 2+1
• 4+1
• 6+1
• 7+2
• 17+4
What do Sprints look like?
• Fast
• Use a watch (coach hat if wanted )
• Weakest should get 11 correct (min)
• Strongest should not be able to finish
• Take home next days sprint (for some.)
Math Sprint Construction
• Rotate a minimum of 10 so they aren’t overly familiar.
• Giving the same sprint throughout the year is great for monitoring

New York State Assessment Transition PlanELA & Math

1 New ELA assessments in grades 9 and 10 will begin during the 2012-13 school year and will be aligned to the Common Core, pending funding.

2 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 and the role of PARCC assessments as Regents assessments will be determined. All PARCC assessments will be aligned to the Common Core.

3 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.

4 The timeline for Regents Math roll-out is under discussion.

5 New York State is a member of the NCSC national alternate assessments 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.
