Essential Questions
How
does the New Math CCSS
change the way we think about
teaching and learning math?
How
do I teach the mathematical
practices?
What’s

The
NGA/CCSSO Standards
Initiative
+
Why the CCSS?
Preparation:
The standards
are college- and careerready. They will help prepare
students with the knowledge
and skills they need to
succeed in education and
training after high school.
+
Why the CCSS?
Competition:
The standards are
internationally benchmarked.
Common standards will help
ensure our students are globally
competitive.
+
Why the CCSS?
Equity:
Expectations are
consistent for all – and not
dependent on a student’s zip
code.
+
Why the CCSS?
Clarity:
The standards are
focused, coherent, and
clear. Clearer standards
help students (and parents
and teachers) understand
what is expected of them.
+
Why the CCSS?
Collaboration:
The standards
create a foundation to work
collaboratively across states and
districts, pooling resources and
expertise, to create curricular
tools, professional development,
common assessments and other
materials
+
•Avoid the
problem of
“mile wide
and an inch
deep”
• Recognize
that “fewer
standards”
are no
substitute
for focused
standards
• Aim for
clarity and
specificity

Key Points in Math
The
K-5 standards provide students
with a solid foundation in whole
multiplication, division, fractions
students build the foundation to
successfully apply more demanding
math concepts and procedures, and
move into applications.
+
Key Points in Math
The
K-5 standards build on the
best state standards to provide
detailed guidance to teachers on
how to navigate their way
through knotty topics such as
fractions, negative numbers, and
geometry, and do so by
maintaining a continuous
+
Key Points in Math
The
standards stress not only
procedural skill but also
conceptual understanding, to
make sure students are learning
and absorbing the critical
information they need to
succeed at higher levels

practices by which many students
learn enough to get by on the next
test, but forget it shortly
thereafter, only to review again

areas:
(1)
developing understanding of multiplication and
division and strategies for multiplication and division
within 100 (i.e. sticks, circles and squares; divide
and ride)
(2)
developing understanding of fractions, especially
unit fractions (fractions with numerator 1) (math
stories –numerator/denominator dogs)(find your
match)
+
Instructional time should focus on four critical
areas:
(3) developing understanding of the structure of
rectangular arrays and of area
(4) describing and analyzing two-dimensional shapes
(Tell me all you can).
+
Instructional time should focus on three critical areas:
(1)
developing understanding and fluency with multi-digit
multiplication, and developing understanding of dividing to
find quotients involving multi-digit dividends (base ten
block division; equal groups; dots and dashes)
(2)
developing an understanding of fraction equivalence,
addition and subtraction of fractions with like
denominators, and multiplication of fractions by whole
numbers (Show video of models)(show fraction
man)(fraction bingo)
(3)
Understanding that geometric figures can be analyzed
and classified based on their properties, such as having
parallel sides, perpendicular sides, particular angle
measures, and symmetry. (show matrices)
+
Instructional time should focus on three critical areas:
(1)
developing fluency with addition and subtraction of
fractions, and developing understanding of the
multiplication of fractions and of division of fractions in
limited cases (unit fractions divided by whole numbers
and whole numbers divided by unit fractions) (show
video)
(2)
extending division to 2-digit divisors, integrating decimal
fractions into the place value system and developing
understanding of operations with decimals to hundredths,
and developing fluency with whole number and decimal
operations (show videos)

Timothy’s
Dice Problem
+
Level 1 of Problem Solving
(O& Ap.25)
Level
1 is making and counting all of
the quantities involved in a
multiplication or division. As
before, the quantities can be
represented by objects or with a
diagram, but a diagram affords
reflection and sharing when it is
drawn on the board and explained
by a student.
+
Level 2 of Problem Solving
(O& Ap.25)
 Level
2 is repeated counting on by a given
number, such as for 3: 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24,
27, 30. The count-bys give the running total.
The number of 3s said is tracked with
fingers or a visual or physical (e.g., head
bobs) pattern. For 8x 3, you know the number
of 3s and count by 3 until you reach 8 of them.
For 24/3, you count by 3 until you hear 24, then
look at your tracking method to see how many
3s you have. Because listening for 24 is easier
than monitoring the tracking method for 8 3s
to stop at 8, dividing can be easier than
multiplying.
+
Level 3 of Problem Solving
(O& Ap.25)
Level
3 methods use the associative
property or the distributive property
to compose and decompose. These
compositions and de- compositions may
subtraction) or multiplicative. For
example, students multiplicatively
compose or decompose:

Mathematically
proficient
students make sense of
quantities and their relationships
in problem situations. They bring
two complementary abilities to
bear on problems involving
quantitative relationships:
+
Reason abstractly and

abstract a given situation and
represent it symbolically and
manipulate the representing symbols
as if they have a life of their own,
without necessarily attending to
their referents—

—and
the ability
to contextualize, to pause as
needed during the
manipulation process in order
to probe into the referents
for the symbols involved.
+
Reason abstractly and

Quantitative reasoning
entails habits of creating a
coherent representation of
the problem at hand;

the units
involved; attending to the
meaning of quantities, not
just how to compute them;

Construct viable arguments
and critique the reasoning of
others.
Mathematically proficient students
understand and use stated
assumptions, definitions, and
previously established results in
constructing arguments.
+
Construct viable arguments
and critique the reasoning
of others.
They
make conjectures and build a logical
progression of statements to explore the
truth of their conjectures. They are able
to analyze situations by breaking them
into cases, and can recognize and use
counterexamples.
+
Construct viable arguments
and critique the reasoning
of others.
They justify their conclusions,
communicate them to others,
and respond to the arguments
of others.
+
Construct viable arguments
and critique the reasoning
of others.
Mathematically
proficient students
are also able to compare the
effectiveness of two plausible
arguments, distinguish correct logic or
reasoning from that which is flawed,
and—if there is a flaw in an
argument—explain what it is.
+
Construct viable arguments
and critique the reasoning of
others.
Elementary
students can construct
arguments using concrete referents
such as objects, drawings, diagrams,
and actions. Such arguments can make
sense and be correct, even though
they are not generalized or made

Use appropriate tools
strategically.
Mathematically
proficient students
consider the available tools when
solving a mathematical problem.
These tools might include pencil
and paper, concrete models, a
ruler, a protractor, a calculator,
system, a statistical package, or
dynamic geometry software.
+
Use appropriate tools
strategically.
Proficient
students are
sufficiently familiar with tools
course to make sound decisions
about when each of these tools

and their limitations.
+
Use appropriate tools
strategically.
Mathematically
proficient students at
various grade levels are able to
identify relevant external
mathematical resources, such as
digital content located on a website,
and use them to pose or solve
problems. They are able to use
technological tools to explore and
deepen their understanding of
concepts.
+
Let’s Look at Some Tools
1.
Elapsed Time Ruler
2.
Alien Angle Rescue

+
Attend to precision.
Mathematically
proficient students
try to communicate precisely to
others. They try to use clear
definitions in discussion with
others and in their own reasoning.
They state the meaning of the
symbols they choose, including
using the equal sign consistently
and appropriately.
+
Attend to precision.
They
units of measure, and labeling
axes to clarify the correspondence
with quantities in a problem. They
calculate accurately and
efficiently, express numerical
precision appropriate for the
problem context
+
Attend to precision.
In
students give carefully
formulated explanations to
each other.
+
Let’s Look at Some Examples
Vocabulary
is Essential.

A Vocabulary Game:
Geometry Dice Roll
Space Alien Rescue
+
+
Look for Structure
Mathematically
proficient students
look closely to discern a pattern
or structure. Young students, for
example, might notice that three
and seven more is the same amount
as seven and three more, or they
may sort a collection of shapes
according to how many sides the
shapes have.
+
Look for Structure
Later,
students will see 7 × 8
equals the well remembered 7
× 5 + 7 × 3, in preparation for
distributive property.
+
Looking for Structure
They can see complicated
things, such as some algebraic
expressions, as single objects or
as being composed of several
objects. For example, they can
see 5 – 3(x – y)2 as 5 minus a
positive number times a square
and use that to realize that its
value cannot be more than 5 for
any real numbers x and y.
+
Let’s Take a Look
Students talking about 12 x 15
What do you notice?
How did the teacher artfully
scaffold this conversation?
+
Looking at Structure
Let’s
Use the Open Array
+
+
Look for and express
regularity in repeated
reasoning.
Mathematically
proficient students
notice if calculations are repeated,
and look both for general methods
and for shortcuts. Upper elementary
students might notice when dividing
25 by 11 that they are repeating the
same calculations over and over again,
and conclude they have a repeating
decimal.
+
Look for and express
regularity in repeated
reasoning.
As
they work to solve a problem,
mathematically proficient students
maintain oversight of the
process, while attending to the
details. They continually evaluate
the reasonableness of their
intermediate results.
