Curriculum Issues in an Era of Common Core State Standards for Mathematics
The Center for the Study of Mathematics Curriculum (CSMC) leaders developed this volume to further the goal of teachers having opportunities to interact across grades in ways that help both teachers and their students see connections in schooling as they progress through the grades. Each section of this volume contains three companion chapters appropriate to the three grade bands—K–5, 6–8, and 9–12—focusing on important curriculum issues related to understanding and implementing the CCSSM.
Common Core Mathematics in a PLC at Work, High School
How do you help your students demonstrate mathematical proficiency toward the learning expectations of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)?
This teacher guide illustrates how to sustain successful implementation of the CCSS for mathematics for high school. Discover what students should learn and how they should learn it, including deep support for the Mathematical Modeling conceptual category of the CCSS. Comprehensive and research-affirmed analysis tools and strategies will help you and your collaborative team develop and assess student demonstrations of deep conceptual understanding and procedural fluency. You’ll also learn how fundamental shifts in collaboration, instruction, curriculum, assessment, and intervention can increase college and career readiness in every one of your students. Extensive tools to implement a successful and coherent formative assessment and RTI response are included.
