Common Core State Standards (CCSS) Mathematics Overview
Common Core Standards:Why? Prepares students for college and work. Consistent expectations regardless of a student’s zip code. Provides clear, focused guideposts.
Common Core Standards:Where did they come from? 2009 College and Career Readiness standards Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA) State and National Math/Math Education Professionals (& their feedback)
Will New York State high schoolmath courses change? • NYSED has yet to release information about how CCSS will be organized into Regents courses for our state. • As far as we know, Integrated Algebra, Geometry and A2/Trig will remain as the core NYS courses, but that is subject to change.
What about Regents Exams? • Content will change to match the Common Core standards • According to the NYSED website, Regents exams will match the CCSS content in 2013-2014* *Subject to change!!
The CCSS Vision in Math . . . “There is a world of difference between a student who can summon a mnemonic device . . . and a student who can explain where the mnemonic device comes from.” “The student who can explain the rule understands the mathematics, and may have a better chance to succeed at a less familiar task . . .”
Next Steps… • Your support teachers will be assisting CTE teachers to implement the new CCSS into their respective curricula.
Key Points for Mathematics: • In January 2011, NYS adopted its final version of the Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) . • CCSS shift: (Fewer Topics…Greater Depth) • Number of Math topics • Number of Math topics 2005 NY Math Standards 2011 CCSS • Depth of Instruction • Depth of Instruction
Key Points (continued…) • For K-8, CCSS are mapped into each grade level • For 9-12, NYSED still deciding which standards will be addressed at each grade level
