High School Common Core Resources


  • 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. Copublished with Solution Tree
    Connecting the Standards, Improving Mathematical Instruction By connecting the CCSSM to previous standards and practices, the book serves as a valuable guide for teachers and administrators in implementing the CCSSM to make mathematics education the best and most effective for all students.
    Help your high school students develop a robust understanding of functions.
    This book focuses on essential knowledge for teachers about geometry. It is organized around four big ideas, supported by multiple smaller, interconnected ideas--essential understandings.
    This book examines five big ideas and twenty-four related essential understandings for teaching statistics in grades 9–12.
    Focus in High School Mathematics: Fostering Reasoning and Sense Making for All Students
    A framework to guide the development of future 9–12 mathematics curriculum and instruction.
    Connect the process of problem solving with the content of the Common Core. The first of a series, this book will help mathematics educators illuminate a crucial link between problem solving and the Common Core State Standards.
    Award-winning author Page Keeley and mathematics expert Cheryl Rose Tobey apply the successful format of Keeley’s best-selling Science Formative Assessment to mathematics. They provide 75 formative assessment strategies and show teachers how to use them to inform instructional planning and better meet the needs of all students. Research shows that formative assessment has the power to significantly improve learning, and its many benefits include: Copublished with Corwin
    The potential drop in reported state proficiency rates when the new CCSSM assessments are implemented will require adjusted expectations.
