Understanding the Transition
to Common Core
Teams of Howard County Math Teachers, ITLs, and MISTs
developed the transition plan:
 Examined cohorts of students
 Examined what pre-requisite skills would be necessary to be
successful for each Common Core course
 Examined what skills students have currently obtained
 Determined how best to fill in gaps to meet needs
 Organized information into the transition plan
What is the difference
between Grade 6
MSM I and II in 2012-2013?
 For grade 6 students in 2012-2013, there are not many
differences between MSM I and II. For the most part,
all students will be following most of Common Core 6
curriculum.
 Grade 6 MSM II will have a few additional standards
from Common Core 7.
 Grade 7 MSM II looks very different than Grade 6 MSM
II.
2012-2013
Essentials
• Units organized by domain
• Structure of Common Core
• Purple bold notes regarding

Activity 1: Backsplash Task

Activity 1: Backsplash Task
The Marshall family is remodeling their kitchen. A creative
way to incorporate color is by tiling the backsplash on the
wall behind their stove. A standard backsplash is 18 inches
by 2 feet. Their son Samuel is very artistic so they ask him
to design a tile pattern for the backsplash.
 The Marshalls only have a few guidelines they are asking




Samuel to follow.
They want to use small square tiles that are 1 inch by 1 inch.
The available colors are red, yellow, green, and blue.
Less than 15% of the backsplash should be yellow.
For every 1 red tile they want 3 blue tiles.
140 square inches should be green.
Create a backsplash design for Samuel to present to his
parents.
Activity 1 Debrief
 Share your design with other groups.
 What mathematical concepts & skills were necessary to
complete the task?
 Look at the Ratios & Proportional Relationships unit—
when might a task like this be introduced?
Sample Responses
Examining the Grade 6
Crosswalk
 What is a crosswalk document?
 How should it be used?
 What does the crosswalk mean for Grade 6?
Short Break
Mini-Lesson: Ratio Tables
 What is a ratio table?
 Why are ratio tables important?
 When should we use ratio tables?
Build a ratio table and use it to answer
the question.
 A person who weighs 160 pounds on Earth will weigh 416 pounds
on the planet Jupiter. How much will a person weigh on Jupiter
who weighs 120 pounds on earth?
 At the local college, five out of every eight seniors live in
apartments. How many of the 30 senior math majors are likely to
live in an apartment?
 The tax on a purchase of $20 is $1.12. How much tax will there be
on a purchase of $45.50?
 When in Australia you can exchange $4.50 in U.S. dollars for $6
Australian. How much is $17.50 Australian in U.S. dollars?
Tasks are adapted from Lamon (1999, p. 183).
Activity 2: King of Cakes
King of Cakes is making a cake for Skye’s birthday party. On the
way to deliver the cake, a piece breaks off. See diagram below.
The cake will still be used for the party even though it is missing a
piece. King of Cakes will reduce the price based upon the portion
that broke off. If the cake was originally priced at $58.25, how
much should King of Cakes now charge Skye?
Activity 2: King of Cakes
Extension Questions:
 If the original cake served 48 people, about
how many people will it now serve?
 The original cake had 11,040 calories.
Approximately how many calories does the
broken off piece contain?
Activity 2 Debrief
 Share your solutions with other groups.
 What mathematical concepts & skills were necessary to
complete the task?
 Look at the Numbers & Operations-Fractions unit—
when might a task like this be introduced?
Where do I find resources?
 We have developed websites to help support you as
you teach these transition courses.
 You do not need to join as a member or input any
passwords to access the resources!!
