Common Core Standards
Common Core State Standards are also known in Michigan as the Career and College Readiness Standards. Various resources are available at our
Ingham ISD Common Core Resource Page
CCSS K-8 learning progressions based on critical areas
Instructional strategies by grade level:
4th grade CCSS critical areas with instruction notes and "I Can" statements
K-6 CCSS with student-friendly "I Can" statements
Gap analysis forms are available here:
CCSS K-5 gap analysis form 4-18-12.doc
- Includes student-friendly "I Can" statements
CCSS 6-8 gap analysis form.doc
CCSS 9-12 gap analysis form.doc
An important shift in state standards is the inclusion of
Standards for Mathematical Practice
, which need to be woven into instruction across all grades. They outline important shifts not only in what we want students to learn, but how we structure daily mathematics instruction, including
Greater emphasis on problem solving
Greater emphasis on reasoning
More opportunities to use models to represent mathematical ideas
The strategic use of tools such as graphing calculators, dynamic geometry software, etc.
The identification and use of underlying patterns and structures
great resource of all things Common Core
is available from Kalamazoo RESA.
Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium
, which is developing the new grade level assessments, has created their assessment framework, which includes "content specifications." You can download it from their website. The focus of the assessment will be on four major components:
Concepts & Procedures -
Students can explain and apply mathematical concepts and interpret and carry out mathematical procedures with precision and fluency.
Problem Solving -
Students can solve a range of complex well-posed problems in pure and applied mathematics, making productive use of knowledge and problem solving strategies.
Communicating Reasoning -
Students can clearly and precisely construct viable arguments to support their own reasoning and to critique the reasoning of others.
Modeling and Data Analysis -
Students can analyze complex, real-world scenarios and can construct and use mathematical models to interpret and solve problems.
