As schools struggle to make sense of the new Common Core Standards in Mathematics they are often left overwhelmed and highly anxious.  Change is hard for most everyone.  How does one balance the classroom, dealing with management and current standards while trying to learn the new expectations brought on by CCSS?

Exploring the History of the 8 Mathematical Practices

michellef's picture

The eight mathematical practices is the bi-product of two very important research products, the five process standards from Principles and Standards for School Mathematics and the five mathematical proficiencies from Adding It Up.  For educators to truly understand the 8 mathematical practices we must go deeper into where the practices originated.

Differentiated Teacher Professional Development=College and Career Ready Students

I was reading my colleague's post today and she referenced in her writing a question posed to us during a recent Common Core in-service. How much will our classrooms change as we implement the Common Core State Standards?  The answer to this question:  it depends on what you currently do in your classroom.

M4: Midwest Mathematics Meeting of the Minds

I recently attended the M4 Conference in Kansas City, where math leaders from Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and Iowa met to discuss the Common Core Standards for Mathematics.  I was privileged to hear from Matt Larson the keynote speaker from Lincoln, Nebraska.  After humerously acknowledging that his state was one of the four who had, as of yet, not adopted the common core standards, Larson got right to work convincing us that the Common Core State Standards may be our last opportunity to get math education right!

Schools across the nation have adopted the Common Core Standards.  Nearly every state http://www.corestandards.org/in-the-states has joined in and that means that you may start to see changes in your child's classroom and in the school as a whole.  

What those changes look like depend heavily on your child's school and the way they have been doing business.  Here is a glimpse of key factors and how they might affect your child's classroom.
