(K.OA.2) Add and subtract within 1000, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method. Understand that in adding or subtracting three-digit numbers, one adds or subtracts hundreds and hundreds, tens and tens, ones and ones; and sometimes it is necessary to compose or decompose tens or hundreds. (2NBT.7) © 2011 California County Superintendents Educational Services Association • Mathematics General Overview 23 Emphasis on Fluency Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division (e.g. knowing that 8 x 5 = 40, one knows 40 ÷ 5 = 8) or properties of operations. By the end of grade 3, know from memory all products of two one-digit numbers. (3.OA.7) Fluently multiply multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm. (5.NBT.5) © 2011 California County Superintendents Educational Services Association • Mathematics General Overview 24 A Strong Focus on Fractions Represent a fraction 1/b on a number line diagram by defining the interval from 0 to 1 as the whole and partitioning it into b equal parts. Recognize that each part has size 1/b and that the endpoint of the part based at 0 locates the number 1/b on the number line. (3.NF.2.a) Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole, including cases of unlike denominators, e.g. by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. Use benchmark fractions and number sense of fractions to estimate mentally and assess the reasonableness of answers. For example, recognize an incorrect result 2/5+ 1/2 = 3/7, by observing that 3/7 < 1/2. (5.NF.2) © 2011 California County Superintendents Educational Services Association • Mathematics General Overview 25 Fraction Concepts Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model. ( 3.NF.3d) Discuss how you might compare pairs of fractions using a visual fraction model. For discussion purposes, use the following two fraction pairs: 7/9 and 4/9 (same denominator) 4/9 and 4/7 (same numerator) © 2011 California County Superintendents Educational Services Association • Mathematics General Overview 26 Fraction Concepts Source: www.mathisfun.com/numbers/fraction-number-line.html © 2011 California County Superintendents Educational Services Association • Mathematics General Overview 27 Fraction Concepts Source: www.mathisfun.com/numbers/fraction-number-line.html © 2011 California County Superintendents Educational Services Association • Mathematics General Overview 28 Goal for 8th grade students is Algebra 1 Not all students have the necessary prerequisite skills for Algebra 1 Two sets of standards for grade 8 ◦ Each set will prepare students for college and career ◦ Standards for Algebra 1 Taken from 8th grade Common Core, high school Algebra content cluster and CA Algebra standards ◦ 8th grade Common Core Goal of grade 8 Common Core is to finalize preparation for students in high school K-7 standards as augmented prepare students for either set of standards © 2011 California County Superintendents Educational Services Association • Mathematics General Overview 29 © 2011 California County Superintendents Educational Services Association • Mathematics General Overview 30 Arranged by conceptual cluster (NOT by course): • Number and Quantity • Modeling • Algebra • Geometry • Functions • Statistics and Probability Same K-8 structure of domain, cluster and standard © 2011 California County Superintendents Educational Services Association • Mathematics General Overview 31 Specify the math that all students should study to be college and career ready Identify additional math standards that students should learn in order to take advanced courses such as calculus, advanced statistics, or discrete mathematics.

Common Core Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and subtract within 10, e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem. First Count, read, and write whole numbers to 100. Count to 120, starting at any number less than 120. In this range, read and write numerals and represent a number of objects with a written numeral. Third Memorize to automaticity the multiplication table for numbers between 1 and 10. Fluently multiply and divide within 100, using strategies such as the relationship between multiplication and division and the properties of operations. © 2011 California County Superintendents Educational Services Association • Mathematics General Overview 35 Grade Fifth Sixth Seventh California Standard Understand the concept of multiplication and division of fractions. Common Core Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction or whole number by a fraction. Apply and extend previous understandings of division to divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions. (A unit fraction is one with a numerator of 1 and the denominator is a positive integer) Interpret and use ratios in different Understand the concept of a ratio and use contexts (e.g., batting averages, miles ratio language to describe a ratio relationship per hour) to show the relative sizes of between two quantities. two quantities, using appropriate notations ( a/b, a to b, a:b ). Use variables and appropriate operations to write an expression, an equation, an inequality, or a system of equations or inequalities that represents a verbal description (e.g., three is less than a number, half as large as area A). Use variables to represent quantities in realworld and mathematical problems and construct simple equations and inequalities to solve problems about the quantities. © 2011 California County Superintendents Educational Services Association • Mathematics General Overview 36 Grade/C ourse Seventh Algebra California Standard Construct and read drawings and models made to scale.
