  1. Central Carolina RESA Meeting January 10, 2012 Implementation of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

  2. Triangle High Five Math Collaborative • Chapel Hill-Carrboro • Durham • Johnston • Orange • Wake

  3. History of Math Collaboration • Began with Algebra Readiness Summit • Formed PLC to discuss issues surrounding the Common Core

  4. District Collaboration Goals • Collaborate on the development of dissemination materials with the help of business partners • Seek agreement on middle and high school course names, essential content, and pre-requisites • Agree to phase in High School courses • Seek agreement on Gifted course offerings and pathway adjustment due to the increased rigor of the CCSS • Collaborate on the development of middle school compacted curriculum • Seek agreement on pacing and unit content for courses • Share resources and materials developed for teachers to implement the new standards

  5. Overview of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

  6. Shifts in the Learning & Teaching of Mathematics • Focus • Coherence • Computational and Procedural Fluency • Deep Conceptual Understanding • Applications (Modeling) • Balanced Emphasis Adapted from: http://www.ode.state.or.us/ and http://engageny.org/resource/common-core-shifts/

  7. Design and Organization

  8. Standards for Mathematical Practice • Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. • Reason abstractly and quantitatively. • Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. • Model with mathematics. • Use appropriate tools strategically. • Attend to precision. • Look for and make use of structure. • Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning. Describe the characteristics and habits of mind of a mathematically proficient student Carry across all grade levels

  9. Standards for Mathematical Content • Organized into domains that progress over several grades • K-8 standards presented by grade level • High school standards presented by conceptual category: • Number and Quantity • Algebra • Functions • Modeling • Geometry • Statistics and Probability • Each grade level or conceptual category has an introduction and overview

  10. Modeling

  11. Design and Organization • Standards define what students should understand and be able to do • Clusters are groups of related standards • Domainsare larger groups that progress across grades Domain Standard Cluster

  12. Where we are . . .

  13. Where we are going . . . Precalculus, Calculus, Advanced Statistics, Discrete Math, Advanced Quantitative Reasoning, etc. 1st three years of high school mathematics

  14. Why the name change? • Name change heralds the shift in the philosophy, content, and instructional expectations for math students • Numerous names across the state that do not communicate the content of the course clearly • Helps parents understand, monitor, and advocate for the needs of their children • Helps deal with issues of a mobile student population • “PLUS” in the course title reflects the nomenclature used in the CCSS

  15. Math I Collaboration • Multi-district work day Dec. 9th • Math I standards divided into 8 units • Sequencing agreed upon • Next work day Feb. 3rd • Curriculum writers will collaborate across districts

  16. Common Core Math I Units • Unit 1: One-Variable Statistics • Unit 2: One-Variable Equations & Inequalities • Unit 3: Functions • Unit 4: Linear Functions • Unit 5: Exponential Functions • Unit 6: Quadratic Functions • Unit 7: Systems of Equations & Inequalities • Unit 8: Two-Variable Statistics

  17. Next Steps • Determine which standards to place in Common Core Math II and Common Core Math III • Determine which plus standards to place in CC Math II PLUS and CC Math III PLUS • Develop resources to supplement Geometry and Algebra II so that students taking Algebra I in 8th grade are prepared to take the SBAC test when they are juniors
