    Product Description

    by Linda M. Gojak and Ruth Harbin Miles

    Copublished with Corwin

    In one short year since the release of K–2 and 3–5 companions to the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts, those volumes have assisted tens of thousands of elementary teachers with the day-to-day “what you do.” But what about mathematics? Fortunately, NCTM past-president Linda Gojak and mathematics coach Ruth Harbin Miles stepped up to the task. As a result, you can have the version of the mathematics standards you always wished you had.

    Page by page, each Common Core Mathematics Companion clearly lays out the details:

    • The mathematics embedded in each standard for a deeper understanding of the content
    • Examples of what effective teaching and learning look like in the classroom
    • Connected standards within each domain so teachers can better appreciate how they relate
    • Priorities within clusters so teachers know where to focus their time
    • The three components of rigor: conceptual understanding, procedural skills, and applications
    • Vocabulary and suggested materials for each grade-level band with explicit connections to the standards
    • Common student misconceptions around key mathematical ideas with ways to address them

    Don’t spend another minute poring over the mathematics standards. Gojak and Miles have already done the heavy lifting for you. Focus instead on how to teach them, using The Common Core Mathematics Companion as your one-stop guide for teaching, planning, assessing, collaborating, and designing powerful mathematics curriculum.
