    Product Description

    By Diane Briars, Harold Asturias, David Foster, Mardi Gale

    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 grades 6–8. Discover what students should learn and how they should learn it at each grade level. Acquire strategies for meeting the rigor of the grades 6–8 standards, including the unique content around ratios, proportions, and relationships at grades 6 and 7. Get insight into the new expectations for grades 6–8 assessment as well as the readiness required for the high school standards.
    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.
