understanding the transition to common core
Understanding the Transition to Common Core

Teams of Howard County Math Teachers, ITLs, and MISTs developed the transition plan:

  • Examined cohorts of students
  • Examined what pre-requisite skills would be necessary to be successful for each Common Core course
  • Examined what skills students have currently obtained
  • Determined how best to fill in gaps to meet needs
  • Organized information into the transition plan
what will algebra i look like in 2012 2013
What will Algebra I look like in 2012-2013?
  • In 2012-2013, students will be receiving most of the Common Core Algebra I curriculum with notes about preparation for the HSA.
  • Some gaps will exist, so there will be notes about blended curriculum and other standards/objectives to teach to depth.
  • Algebra I and Algebra I Seminar will follow the same sequence.

activity 1 the lacrosse tournament
Activity 1: The Lacrosse Tournament

The Parks and Recreation Department is planning a tournament for club lacrosse teams in the area. Sixty-four teams have entered to play. Teams will be placed in a single elimination bracket at random. Four fields are available for tournament use. Games will only be played on Saturdays from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm. Games are 40 minutes in length. Ten minutes is allotted for half time and 10 minutes for teams to warm up. A team can plan only one round each Saturday.

  Your job is to report how many fields are being used each Saturday during the tournament. The parks department also needs to know how much available field space they have each weekend for other activities.

activity 1 debrief
Activity 1 Debrief
  • Share your solution with other groups.
  • What mathematical concepts & skills were necessary to complete the task?
  • Look at Unit 2—when might a task like this be introduced?
examining the algebra i crosswalk
Examining the Algebra I Crosswalk
  • What is a crosswalk document?
  • How should it be used?
  • What does the crosswalk mean for Algebra I?
slide15

On July 6, 2011, Mark Zuckerberg confirmed the rumors that there are now 750 million Facebook users in the world.

activity 2 debrief
Activity 2 Debrief
  • Share your solutions with other groups.
  • What mathematical concepts & skills were necessary to complete the task?
  • Look at the Unit 2—when might a task like this be introduced?
  • How does this activity compare to The Lacrosse Tournament task?
mini lesson understanding residuals
Mini-Lesson: Understanding Residuals
  • Use the Airfare data to find an equation for line of best fit.
  • Calculate the difference between the actual airfares and the expected airfare prices.
  • What do you notice?
why are residuals important
Why are residuals important?
  • Residuals help to determine how well the model is fitting the data.
  • If a pattern exists in the residual plot, then the model selected may not be appropriate for the data.
  • If the residual plot is random and the residuals are close to 0, then the model may be appropriate.
where do i find resources
Where do I find resources?
  • We have developed websites to help support you as you teach these transition courses.
  • You do not need to join as a member or input any passwords to access the resources!!
  • The main page to visit: http://secondarymathcommoncore.hcpss.wikispaces.net/
next steps
Next Steps
  • Spring 2012: Lessons/tasks/resources will continue to be developed
