Implementation of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Triangle high five math collaborative
Triangle High Five Math Collaborative

  • Chapel Hill-Carrboro

  • Durham

  • Johnston

  • Orange

  • Wake

History of math collaboration
History of Math Collaboration

  • Began with Algebra Readiness Summit

  • Formed PLC to discuss issues surrounding the Common Core

District collaboration goals
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

Overview of the common core state standards for mathematics

Overview of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Shifts in the learning teaching of mathematics
Shifts in the Learning & Teaching of Mathematics

  • Focus

  • Coherence

  • Computational and Procedural Fluency

  • Deep Conceptual Understanding

  • Applications (Modeling)

  • Balanced Emphasis

Standards for mathematical practice
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

Standards for mathematical content
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

Design and organization1
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




Where we are going
Where we are going . . .

Precalculus, Calculus, Advanced Statistics, Discrete Math, Advanced Quantitative Reasoning, etc.

1st three

years of

high school


Why the name change
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

Math i collaboration
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

Common core math i units
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

Next steps
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
