Session learning targets
Session Learning Targets

  • Explore the six shifts that are associated with the transition to the Common Core Learning Standards for Mathematics

  • Consider how the shifts will effect mathematics instruction in districts

  • Review and understand the implications of the required fluencies expected by grade level

  • Exposure to the priorities that have been suggested


6 shifts
6 Shifts

  • Focus

  • Coherence

  • Fluency

  • Understanding

  • Application

  • Dual-Intensity


Focus
Focus

  • Focus on fewer topics, in greater depth

    • Higher performing countries…

      • …focus on fewer topics

      • …share 3 topics in common

Whole Numbers

Operations

Quantities


Coherence
Coherence

  • Each concept in each grade builds on what you learned before

    • Learn about related topics in a way that reinforces the core learning

    • A constant effort to rethink what we learn in math, so it links to core understanding


Fluency
Fluency

  • Speed and accuracy

  • Memorizing facts

    • Kids do this at different rates, but it is important to insist on the ones that matter most for later, more complex math

Activity 1
Activity 1http://engageny.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/CCSSFluencies.pdf

  • Turn to your neighbor and discuss the implications of the fluencies

    • How can fluency effect more advanced math skills?

    • Use the hand-out about fludencies to support your discussion


Deep understanding
Deep Understandinghttp://engageny.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/CCSSFluencies.pdf

  • Flexible mastery of a small number of topics which can be applied to a variety of problems

  • The price of fewer is deeper

Fact:

Hong Kong only covers 50% of topics on the TIMSS assessments. We cover 100%.


Application
Applicationhttp://engageny.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/CCSSFluencies.pdf

  • Capacity to apply learning in unique situations


Dual intensity
Dual Intensityhttp://engageny.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/CCSSFluencies.pdf

Powerful memories and automaticity

Application to diverse, unexpected circumstances


Activity 2

  • For each shift, identify:

    • What the shift will demand of teachers

    • Why the shift is critical to the success of the Common Core

  • Use the prompts to continue discussions


Priorities for focus
Priorities for Focushttp://engageny.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/CCSSFluencies.pdf

  • Collaboratively written by the authors of the common core

  • Can be used to aid in curricular planning
