Smart implementation of the Common Core State Standards requires both an overall understanding of the standards and a grasp of their implications for planning, teaching, and learning. This Quick-Start Guide provides a succinct, all-in-one look at * The structure, terminology, and emphases of the Common Core mathematics standards at the high school level, including the areas that represent the most significant changes to business as usual. * The meaning of the individual content standards, addressed by domain and cluster, within all five conceptual categories--Number and Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. * How the content standards, practice standards, and designated modeling standards connect across domains, categories, grade bands, and traditional course boundaries to help students develop both deep conceptual understanding and functional, real-world application skills. Here, mathematics teachers and teacher leaders will find information they need to begin adapting their courses and practices to ensure all students master the new and challenging material the standards present and graduate ready for college or career. A practical lesson planning process to use with the Common Core, based on Classroom Instruction That Works, 2nd Ed., is included, along with three sample lessons. LEARN THE ESSENTIALS OF THE COMMON CORE The grade-level and subject-specific Quick-Start Guides in the Understanding the Common Core Standards series, edited by John Kendall, are designed to help school leaders and school staffs turn Common Core standards into coherent, content-rich curriculum and effective, classroom-level lessons.

The Common Core State Standards are a set of standards for Kindergarten through 12th grade that have been adopted by 45 states in an effort to ensure that all U.S. students are equally prepared for college and careers. But no change in educational policy will ever meet with universal approval, and this change is proving controversial for many reasons. Parents are getting secondhand, biased information in many cases, and lack a clear understanding of what these standards are and how they will affect how and what their children learn. Idiot's Guides: The Common Core Standards will help parents, students, teachers, student teachers, and administrators understand the details of this far-reaching initiative. In it, readers get: A history of the development of the standards-how they came to be, where they have been implemented, and how they compare with those of other countries. An outline of what makes these standards different from previous statewide and standards. Details and examples of how students' classroom learning will change under the Common Core. Ways parents can help students at home--including how to help with homework that may be quite different than what they remember. A breakdown of the standards for English, math, and literacy across other subject areas, by grade level. Answers to the most commonly asked questions about the Common Core. Information on the assessments that students will take as part of the new curricula.

This is a methods book for preservice middle level majors and beginning middle school teachers. It takes a very practical approach to learning to teach middle school mathematics in an emerging Age of the Common Core State Standards. The Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSSM) is not meant to be “the” official mathematics curriculum; it was purposefully developed primarily to provide clear learning expectations of mathematics content that are appropriate at every grade level and to help prepare all students to be ready for college and the workplace. A quick glance at the Table of Contents in this book indicates a serious engagement with the recommended mathematics underlying the Grade 5 through Grade 8 and (traditional pathway) Algebra I portions of the CCSSM first, with issues in content-practice assessment, learning, teaching, and classroom management pursued next and in that order. In this book we explore what it means to teach to the CCSSM within an alignment mindset involving content-practice learning, teaching, and assessment. The Common Core state content standards, which pertain to mathematical knowledge, skills, and applications, have been carefully crafted so that they are teachable, learnable, coherent, fewer, clearer, and higher. The practice standards, which refer to institutionally valued mathematical actions, processes, and habits, have been conceptualized in ways that will hopefully encourage all middle school students to engage with the content standards more deeply than merely acquiring mathematical knowledge by rote and imitation. Thus, in the CCSSM, proficiency in content alone is not sufficient, and so does practice without content, which is limited. Content and practice are both equally important and, thus, must come together in teaching, learning, and assessment in order to support authentic mathematical understanding. This blended multisourced text is a “getting smart” book. It prepares preservice middle level majors and beginning middle school teachers to work within the realities of accountable pedagogy and to develop a proactive disposition that is capable of supporting all middle school students in order for them to experience growth in mathematical understanding that is necessary for high school and beyond, including future careers.

Mathematics educators have long recognised the importance of helping students to develop problem-solving skills. More recently, they have searched for the best ways to provide their students with the knowledge encompassed in the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). This volume is one in a series from NCTM that equips classroom teachers with targeted, highly effective problems for achieving both goals at once. The 44 problems and tasks for students in this book are organised into the major areas of the high school Common Core: algebra, functions, geometry, statistics and probability, and number and quantity. Examples of modelling, the other main CCSS area, are incorporated throughout. Every domain that is required of all mathematics students is represented. For each task, teachers will find a rich, engaging problem or set of problems to use as a lesson starting point. An accompanying discussion ties these tasks to the specific Common Core domains and clusters they help to explore. Follow-up sections highlight the relevant CCSS Standards for Mathematical Practice that students will engage in as they work on these problems. This book provides high school mathematics teachers with dozens of problems they can use as is, adapt for their classrooms, or be inspired by while creating related problems on other topics. For every mathematics educator, the books in this series will help to illuminate a crucial link between problem solving and the Common Core State Standards.

"Using the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics With Gifted and Advanced Learners" provides teachers and administrators examples and strategies to implement the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) with advanced learners at all stages of development in K–12 schools. The book describes-and demonstrates with specific examples from the CCSS-what effective differentiated activities in mathematics look like for top learners. It shares how educators can provide rigor within the new standards to allow students to demonstrate higher level thinking, reasoning, problem solving, passion, and inventiveness in mathematics. By doing so, students will develop the skills, habits of mind, and attitudes toward learning needed to reach high levels of competency and creative production in mathematics fields.
