Perimeter/Area Activity Common Core Support Tools Below you will find unpacking standards documents to support teachers in their understanding of the common core and essential standards. The unpacking documents demonstrate at a granular level the knowledge and skills students are expected to master at a particular grade. Important Note: The current Standard Course of Study will continue to be taught and tested during the 2010-11 and 2011-12 school years. New standards and assessments are to be implemented for the first time beginning with the 2012-13 school year. Please send any thoughts, feedback, questions and ideas about additional resources that would help you start preparing to teach the new standards to feedback@dpi.nc.gov.

common core resources /mathematical practice standards / Inside Mathematics illuminates the mathematical practice standards with video excerpts of mathematics lessons. Just as with content standards, not every lesson reflects all elements of the individual standards for mathematical practice. By representing examples from different classrooms for each standard, we want to emphasize how many different ways teachers may enact these standards for mathematical practice in their classrooms, with their particular learners. This alignment was developed in collaboration with educators from the Silicon Valley Mathematics Initiative and the Charles A. untitled Academics / Eight Mathematical Practices Explanation of the Eight Mathematical Practices The Standards for Mathematical Practice describe varieties of expertise that mathematics educators at all levels should seek to develop in their students. These practices rest on important “processes and proficiencies” with longstanding importance in mathematics education. The first of these are the NCTM process standards of problem solving, reasoning and proof, communication, representation, and connections. The Eight Practices are: Websites for explanations Check out this list for a specific description of each. Here's another website with great resources. But my favorite website for the Eight MPs?

The University of Arizona - Institute for Mathematics & Education The Common Core State Standards in mathematics were built on progressions: narrative documents describing the progression of a topic across a number of grade levels, informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics. These documents were spliced together and then sliced into grade level standards. From that point on the work focused on refining and revising the grade level standards. The early drafts of the progressions documents no longer correspond to the current state of the standards. It is important to produce up-to-date versions of the progressions documents. They can explain why standards are sequenced the way they are, point out cognitive difficulties and pedagogical solutions, and give more detail on particularly knotty areas of the mathematics. This project is organizing the writing of final versions of the progressions documents for the K–12 Common Core State Standards.

Iniciación a la numeración con apoyo de la recta numérica - Actividades Lúdicas Educativas Con esta actividad buscamos como objetivo que el alumnado identifique visual y manipulativamente el concepto de decena y que traslade dicha experiencia al papel. Debajo de las fotografías se va explicando el proceso seguido. Foto 1: Una vez que el alumnado conoce y domina la primera decena, el objetivo es lograr que entienda el concepto de decena y que lo domine para poder formar y operar con el resto números hasta el 99. El alumno representa en la recta numérica del suelo, cada número con sus correspondientes palillos, pinchándolos en la unión del número con la pieza del puzzle de goma. Foto 2-3-4: Cuando llegamos al 10 ponemos los 10 palillos correspondientes y planteamos si podemos representar dicho número de otra forma distinta, pero siguiendo usando los palillos. Foto 5: Una vez solucionado el cambio que supone el número diez, seguimos representando el resto de números de la segunda decena. - La decena de palillos se repiten en la pieza del puzzle con el número 1

Using Minecraft to teach Math Literacy You’ve probably heard of the game Minecraft – millions of children around the world play it – but did you know that it can help teach math skills? I didn’t. When my 7-year-old asked me to download Minecraft for him, I checked it out online first, and what I read astounded me. Minecraft is a game in which players can use 3D blocks to build simple things like houses, as well as complex things like programmable computers! (see video) It can be used in the classroom to teach math concepts; from beginning multiplication tables to advanced physics. Mitch Brotherton teaches 6th and 7th grade Literacy Math at Otwell Middle school in Cumming, Georgia. If you can imagine it, you can build it “Minecraft is what gamers refer to as a "sandbox" game, in which the player does whatever he or she chooses to do. His course incorporates many of the common core standards required in math and literacy classes. Encouraging creativity Minecraft promotes creativity in both students and teachers. Fun Factor

Maths Learning: Learn about Place Value of the Digits in a Number Documento sin título El trabajo que exponemos, es el resultado de una experiencia que se enmarca, dentro del Área de Matemáticas en E. Primaria, y que surgió ante la necesidad de reflexionar sobre el proceso de Enseñanza/ Aprendizaje en esta área, así como de nuestra actuación como docentes a lo largo del mismo. Actualmente nos encontramos en nuestras escuelas, por un lado con niños y niñas, que desde su primer contacto en la misma, muestran cierta dificultad para la comprensión de determinados conceptos matemáticos; y por otro lado con niños y niñas que, si bien, han llegado a operar con cantidades, descomponiendo, componiendo, comparando y ordenando los números, fracasan en la automatización de determinados algoritmos (suma, resta, multiplicación, división, etc..). Desarrollar la rapidez y aproximación en el cálculo matemático. Aplicar nuevas estrategias a los contenidos del Área de Matemáticas. La experiencia está enmarcada dentro del Área de Matemáticas, realizándose con el grupo/clase.
