What are the Common Core State
Standards?
• The Common Core State Standards, adopted
by the New Jersey State Board of Education in
kindergarten through high school for what
students should know and be able to do in
English Language Arts (ELA) and mathematics
to be successful in college and careers.
What is the Common Core?
• State education chiefs and governors in 48 states
came together to develop the Common Core, a
set of clear college- and career-ready standards
for kindergarten through 12th grade in English
language arts/literacy and mathematics. Today,
43 states have voluntarily adopted and are
working to implement the standards, which are
designed to ensure that students graduating from
high school are prepared to take credit bearing
introductory courses in two- or four-year college
programs or enter the workforce.
Common Core Overview: The need for Improved Student Outcomes
Common Core Standards
Key shifts in Mathematics
• Greater focus on fewer topics
• Coherence: Linking topics and thinking across
• Rigor: Pursue conceptual understanding,
procedural skills and fluency, and application
with equal intensity
6th Grade Math Common Core Standards
• Ratios and Proportional Relationships
– Understand ratio concepts and use ratio reasoning to solve problems.
• The Number System
– Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to divide
fractions by fractions.
– Multiply and divide multi-digit numbers and find common factors and multiples.
– Apply and extend previous understandings of numbers to the system of rational
numbers.
• Expressions and Equations
– Apply and extend previous understandings of arithmetic to algebraic expressions.
– Reason about and solve one-variable equations and inequalities.
– Represent and analyze quantitative relationships between dependent and independent
variables.
• Geometry
– Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, surface area, and volume.
• Statistics and Probability
– Develop understanding of statistical variability.
– Summarize and describe distributions.

Ratios and Proportional Relationships
– Analyze proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world and
mathematical problems.
The Number System
– Apply and extend previous understandings of operations with fractions to add,
subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers.
Expressions and Equations
– Use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions.
– Solve real-life and mathematical problems using numerical and algebraic
expressions and equations.
Geometry
– Draw, construct and describe geometrical figures and describe the
relationships between them.
– Solve real-life and mathematical problems involving angle measure, area,
surface area, and volume.
Statistics and Probability
– Use random sampling to draw inferences about a population.
– Draw informal comparative inferences about two populations.
– Investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability
models.
8th Grade Math Common Core Standards
• The Number System
– Know that there are numbers that are not rational, and approximate them by rational
numbers.
• Expressions and Equations
– Work with radicals and integer exponents.
– Understand the connections between proportional relationships, lines, and linear
equations.
– Analyze and solve linear equations and pairs of simultaneous linear equations.
• Functions
– Define, evaluate, and compare functions.
– Use functions to model relationships between quantities.
• Geometry
– Understand congruence and similarity using physical models, transparencies, or
geometry software.
– Understand and apply the Pythagorean Theorem.
– Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving volume of cylinders, cones and
spheres.
• Statistics and Probability
– Investigate patterns of association in bivariate data.

Mathematical Practices
• 1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
• 2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
• 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of
others.
• 4. Model with mathematics.
• 5. Use appropriate tools strategically.
• 6. Attend to precision.
• 7. Look for and make use of structure.
• 8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
Common Core Standards
Key shifts in English Language Arts

• Reading, writing, and speaking grounded in
evidence from texts, both literary and
informational
• Building knowledge through content-rich

Assessment & the Common Core
An overview of the new CCSS-aligned assessments
Overview
• The 3-8 PARCC assessments will be delivered at each grade
level and will be based directly on the Common Core State
Standards.
required summative and two optional non-summative - to
provide educators with timely feedback to inform instruction
and provide multiple measures of student achievement across
the school year.
Overview
Summative Assessment Components:
• Performance-Based Assessment (PBA) administered after
approximately 75% of the school year. The English language
arts/literacy (ELA/literacy) PBA will focus on writing effectively when
analyzing text. The mathematics PBA will focus on applying skills,
concepts, and understandings to solve multi-step problems requiring
abstract reasoning, precision, perseverance, and strategic use of tools.
• End-of-Year Assessment (EOY) administered after approximately 90%
of the school year. The ELA/literacy EOY will focus on reading
comprehension. The mathematics EOY will call on students to
demonstrate further conceptual understanding of the Major Content
outlined in the PARCC Model Content Frameworks), and demonstrate
mathematical fluency, when applicable to the grade.
