• Nearly every state in the nation is working individually and collectively to improve its academic standards and assessments to ensure students graduate with the knowledge and skills most demanded by college and careers. The CCSS were created by educators from around the nation. As you know, Maryland is part of the 22 state consortium for known as PARCC: The Partnership for Readiness for College and Careers.
• Maryland adopted the CCSS in June of 2010. That summer, MSDE conducted a gap analysis with the help of local school districts and higher ed and by 2011, MSDE created the Maryland CCSS Frameworks. 2012-2013 MD has continued to develop supports and resources for teachers. ?????????????? Should I keep this???????????????
• Before CCSS ---College and Career Readiness StandardsCCSS built with Focus - less betterWhen powers of ten are introduced for place value – only powers of ten – not exponents and other basesFractions are not pretty pictures of shapes divided but a number – which can be computed. Fractions should be taugh on the number lineCoherence – within grades and progressing through gradesthru grades --elementary no prob - hold topic until fractions in later gradesAdditional language around poers/expoents when we begin looking at other bases
• FocusFraction as number and not pictureData – limited to line plots
• The Common Core State Standards in mathematics were built on progressions: narrative documents describing the progression of a topic across a number of grade levels, informed both by research on children&apos;s cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics.
• Rigor – being able to apply the knowledge in a new situation
• NOT by grade – like NCTM or our Current StandardsStudent behaviors but teacher creates the environment for them to developMd is ahead of many states – explain how – explain why - justify
• Each grade includes an overview of cross-cutting themes and critical areas of studyDomains: overarching ideas that connect topics across the gradesClusters: illustrate progression of increasing complexity from grade to grade PARCC developed Frameworks which identified - major – supporting – additional clusters – within each grade
• A true algebraic approach

5. 5. Mathematics Donna Watts Coordinator for Mathematics dwatts@msde.state.md.us
6. 6. 6 Instructional Shifts Coherence Focus Conceptual Understanding– Fluency -- Application RIGOR ********Dual Intensity********
7. 7. • Introduce probability after understanding fractions • Develop understanding of ratio then slope Focus • Understand fraction as a number • Represent and interpret data Coherence
8. 8. Progressions http://ime.math.arizona.edu/progressions/ Number and Operations Fractions Grade 3 Fraction as number Grade 4 Fraction equivalence Grade 5 Equivalent fractions as a strategy for adding and subtracting
9. 9. Progressions http://ime.math.arizona.edu/progressions/ Expressions and Equations Grade 6 Arithmetic to algebraic expressions Grade 7 Generate Equivalent algebraic expressions Grade 8 Understand connections between proportional relationships, lines, linear equations
10. 10. Conceptual Understanding– Fluency -- Application RIGOR Dual Intensity Balance
11. 11. Teachers teach more than “how to get the answer” and instead 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.
12. 12. Grade Domain Cluster Practices
