Structure Domain Cluster Heading Standard
Domains • Counting and Cardinality (only in Kindergarten) • Operations and Algebraic Thinking • Number and Operations in Base Ten • Measurement and Data • Geometry
Tool #1 Domain
Publisher Requirements for Tool #1 • List the titles of all textbooks being submitted for review in the first cell of each section. • Provide the Chapter and Page Numbers which provide evidence of alignment to the content standards for ALL grades/textbooks on ONE document. • Make three copies of the same document and submit one copy with each of the textbooks to be submitted for review.
Standards for Mathematical Practice 1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. 2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively. 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. 4. Model with mathematics. 5. Use appropriate tools strategically. 6. Attend to precision. 7. Look for and make use of structure. 8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
Tool #2 Note for the Reviewers: When trying to identify how the Standards for Mathematical Practices were treated, please refer to the Standards in shaded cells in Tool 1. These content standards provide a suggested basis for reviewing the Mathematical Practices as they have the greatest potential to incorporate the Mathematical Practices in the curriculum materials. The identified content standards are only suggestions, not mandates, for where the practices might be addressed. Evidence of the Mathematical Practices found may be linked to additional standards not shaded in Tool 1.
Requirements of Publishers for Tool #2 • Publishers shall complete one tool for each textbook being submitted for review. • It is expected that some pages listed in the cells on Tool 2 will match those pages listed in Tool 1; but it is not necessary to highlight that fact in both places.
Tool #3 • Completed by the committee • Summary of Tool #1 and Tool #2 with additional questions • Committee will make independent decision about whether to Adopt or Reject a particular submission
