1. Common Core State Standards Implications for Mathematics

2. Overview Greater Focus and Coherence • Move away from “mile wide and an inch deep” • Aim for clarity and specificity • The K-12 standards stress conceptual knowledge and understanding in addition to procedural skills • Students who master the K-5 standards will have a strong foundation in whole numbers, fractions, decimals, and the basic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division)

3. K‐5 Domains • Counting and Cardinality (K only) • Operations and Algebraic Thinking (Grades 1‐5) • Number and Operations in Base Ten (Grades 1‐5) • Number and Operations‐‐Fractions (Grades 3‐5) • Measurement and Data (Grades 1‐5) • Geometry (Grades 1‐5)

4. Major Shifts K‐5 • Numeration and operation intensified, and introduced earlier • Early place value foundations in grade K • Regrouping as composing / decomposing in grade 2 • Decimals to hundredths in grade 4 • All three types of measurement simultaneously (Non‐standard, English and Metric) • Emphasis on fractions as numbers • Emphasis on number line as visualization /structure

5. Implications for MEAP/MME

6. Chippewa’s Next Steps • Implementation projected for fall 2011 • Staff meetings to discuss CCSS • Professional development • Release time for teachers to realign courses & assessments
