### Implementing Mathematics Common Core State Standards

Presented by Janet Rummel, Goodwill Education Initiatives

Close reading of three standards, one from Alg I, Geo, Algebra II; circle nouns and underline verbs; identify content (phrases); identify skills (sentences); describe progression in skills; what evidence must be obtained (spreadsheet link)

Looking at end of module engage NY Algebra II assessment

Shifts in expectations
Compare- for example, mean to median, mean to mean, congruent parabolas
Justify
Prove algebraically
Justify answers to multiple choice questions
A lot of questions build on one set of information
More writing
More real world applications

Shifts in content
Compare congruent parabolas
Product of linear and quadratic factor

Product of linear factors

Shifts in MY teaching
Intentional Modeling

Word Problem Strategy
Consistency k-12
CUBES
Circle the numbers (watch out for numbers written in words)
Underline important information
Box the question
Eliminate unnecessary information
Show all work

How can students apply this strategy to problems they can't write on? On PARCC? Give them the opportunity to practice. Make a T-chart and jot down information. We need to build confidence in students that not knowing one word doesn't stop you from solving the problem.
