**Mathematical Shifts of the**Common Core State Standards May 2013 Common Core Training for Administrators Elementary Mathematics Division of Academics, Accountability, and School Improvement Focus, Coherence, and Rigor**Mathematical Shifts of the Common Core State Standards:**Focus, Coherence and Rigor AGENDA Purpose and Vision of CCSSM Implementation Timeline Six Shifts in Mathematics Design and Organization Expectations of Student Performance Instructional Implications: Engaging in Mathematical Practices’ Look-fors CCSSM Resources: Websites Reflections / Questions and Answers**Community Norms**We are all learners today We are respectful of each other We welcome questions We share discussion time We turn off all electronic devices __________________**Good Mathematics is NOT**how many answers you know… but how you behave when you don’t know.**M-DCPS**Florida’s Common Core State Standards Implementation Timeline F L F L • F – Full Implementation of CCSSM • L – Full implementation of content area literacy standards including: text complexity, quality and range in all grades (K-12) • B – Blended instruction of CCSS with NGSSS; last year of NGSSS assessed on FCAT 2.0 (Grades 3-8); 4th quarter will focus on NGSSS/CCSSM grade level content gaps**CCSSM**• CCSSM • CCSSM NGSSS • CCSSM • CCSSM NGSSS • CCSSM NGSSS NGSSS • CCSSM NGSSS • CCSSM • CCSSM NGSSS**Common Core State Standards Mission**• The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.**Ministry of Education**Singapore “Teach Less, Learn More…”**Mathematical Shifts of the Common Core State Standards**Focus, Coherence, and Rigor Fluency, Deep Understanding, Application, Dual Intensity**Six Mathematical Shifts**1. FOCUSdeeply on what is emphasized in the Standards 2. COHERENCE: Think across grades, and link to major topics within grades RIGOR:Requires 3. Fluency 4. Deep Understanding 5. Model/Apply 6. Dual Intensity**Shift 1: Focus**Teachers use the power of the eraser and significantly narrow and deepen the scope of how time and energy is spent in the math classroom. They do so in order to focus deeply on only the concepts that are prioritized in the standards so that students reach strong foundational knowledge and deep conceptual understanding and are able to transfer mathematical skills and understanding across concepts and grades. Students are able to transfer mathematical skills and understanding across concepts and grades. – Spend more time on Fewer Concepts Achievethecore.org**Mathematics Shift 1: Focus**Spend more time on Fewer Concepts http://www.fldoe.org/schools/ccc.asp**K-8 Priorities in Math**Priorities in Support of Rich Instruction and Expectations of Fluency and Conceptual Understanding K–2 Addition and subtraction, measurement using whole number quantities 3–5 Multiplication and division of whole numbers, and fractions 6 Ratios and proportional reasoning; early expressions and equations 7 Ratios and proportional reasoning; arithmetic of rational numbers 8 Linear algebra Achievethecore.org**Pair-share Activity**Describe what is and what is not FOCUS**Shift 2: Coherence**Principals and teachers carefully connect the learning within and across grades so that students can build new understanding onto foundations built in previous years. Teachers can begin to count on deep conceptual understanding of core content and build on it. Eachstandard is not a new event, but an extension of previous learning. A student’s understanding of learning progressions can help them recognize if they are on track. Keep Building on learning year after year Achievethecore.org**Mathematics Shift 2: Coherence**Keep Building on learning year after year http://www.fldoe.org/schools/ccc.asp**Pair-share Activity**Describe what is and what is not COHERENCE**Shift 3: Fluency**Teachers help students to study algorithms as “general procedures” so they can gain insights to the structure of mathematics (e.g. organization, patterns, predictability). Students are expected to have speed and accuracy with simple calculations and procedures so that they are more able to understand and manipulate more complex concepts. Students are able to apply a variety of appropriateproceduresflexiblyas they solve problems. Spend time Practicing (First Component of Rigor) Achievethecore.org**K-8 Key Fluencies**Achievethecore.org**Mathematics Shift 3: Fluency**Spend time Practicing http://www.fldoe.org/schools/ccc.asp**Pair-share Activity**Describe what is and what is not FLUENCY**Shift 4: Deep Conceptual Understanding**Teachers teach more than “how to get the answer;” they support students’ ability to access concepts from a number of perspectives so that students are able to see math as more than a set of mnemonics or discrete procedures. Students demonstrate deep conceptual understanding of core math concepts by applying them to new situations as well as writing and speaking about their understanding. UnderstandMath, DoMath, andProveit (Second Component of Rigor) Achievethecore.org**Mathematics Shift 4: Deep Understanding**UnderstandMath, DoMath, andProveit http://www.fldoe.org/schools/ccc.asp**Pair-share Activity**Describe what is and what is not DEEP CONCEPTUAL UNDERSTANDING**Shift 5: Applications (Modeling)**Teachers provide opportunities to apply math concepts in “real world” situations. Teachers in content areas outside of math ensure that students are using math to make meaning of and access content. Students are expected to use math and choose the appropriate concept for application even when they are not prompted to do so. Apply math in Real World situations (Third Component of Rigor) Achievethecore.org**Mathematics Shift 5: Application**Apply math in Real World situations http://www.fldoe.org/schools/ccc.asp**Pair-share Activity**Describe what is and what is not APPLICATION/MODELING**Shift 6: Dual Intensity**There is a balance between practice and understanding; both are occurring with intensity. Teachers create opportunities for students to participate in “drills” and make use of those skills through extended application of math concepts. Thinkfast and Solveproblems (Fourth Component of Rigor) Achievethecore.org**Mathematics Shift 6: Dual Intensity**Thinkfast and Solveproblems http://www.fldoe.org/schools/ccc.asp**Pair-share Activity**Describe what is and what is not DUAL INTENSITY**Design**and Organization**Design and Organization**• Standards for Mathematical Practice • Carry across all grade levels • Connect with content standards in each grade • Describe “habits of mind” of a mathematically expert student Standards for Mathematical Content • K - 8 grade-by-grade standards organized by domains that progress over several grades. • 9 – 12 high school standards organized by conceptual categories**Standards for**Mathematical Practice**Standards for Mathematical Practices**“The Standards for Mathematical Practice are unique in that theydescribe how teachers need to teach to ensure their students become mathematically proficient.

Note: listed above are excerpts from the original critical areas delineated on the CCSS document..**Clustersare groups of related standards.Standards from**different clusters may sometimes be closely related, because mathematics is a connected subject.
