22 Grades 3-8 Math Common Core Coach Math Clear lessons to help your students master achievements emphasized by the CCSS Anchor standards that set the instructional path toward College and Career Readiness Scaffolding to support increasingly independent work

23 Mathematics educators use the MPs to develop concepts and skills throughout the year in all domains. These standards are embedded throughout lessons to develop student proficiency. The MPs are used by students to show their mastery of mathematical concepts and skills. All mathematical practices must connect to mathematical content in mathematical instruction. Common Core Coach Math Standards for Mathematical Practice (MPs) 24

24 Operations and Algebraic Thinking Common Core Coach Math Program Structure Number and Operations in Base Ten Grade 4 Number and Operations Fractions Lesson 1 Lesson 2 Lesson 3 Lesson 4 Lesson 5 Domain Review Measureme nt and Data Geometry Performance Task All books in the Common Core Coach series are organized into the five domains listed in the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics for each grade. Each domain contains a set of lessons, each of which aligns to one or more Common Core State Standards. All lessons in a single domain cover all the standards of that domain. 25

25 Common Core Coach Math Grades 3-8 Student Edition Average 250 pages Components lessons for each grade level Teacher s Manual CCSS correlation chart 2-page lesson plan for each lesson Appendix A: Fluency Practice Appendix B: Standards for Mathematical Practice Assessment 5 Domain Assessments questions for each, last 5 questions of each are open ended 1 Summative Assessment 50 multiple choice questions 26

26 Common Core Coach Math Table of Contents The Table of Contents includes Domains 1 through 5. Within each Domain there are lessons to cover each of the Common Core State Standards Each lesson is correlated to a Common Core State Standard. Icons appear in the TOC and in the lessons to identify: Problem-Solving lessons and Problem-Solving pages. Fluency Lessons Performance Tasks 27

27 Common Core Coach Math Domain Progressions in Student Edition Students view how the current domain content connects to future and past domains. Understanding where they are in the continuum provides students with a logical road map to success. 28

28 Common Core Coach Math Lesson Format 3 types of lessons flow in a logical fashion, building on prior knowledge from the forerunner domain or from a domain whose content links to the domain at hand 1. Concept Lesson the standard is expecting the student to understand a concept Understand portion of lesson details underlying concept of skill. Explains how a skill works (intangible) Always connected to a set of skill pages 2. Skill Lesson begins with skill and variants of its application. The tangible part of the math 3. Problem Solving Lesson uses 4-step problem solving process Read Plan Solve Check 29

29 Common Core Coach Math An Inside Look at the Student Edition 30

30 Math - Concept Lesson Concept Page Teaches or explains the underlying concept of the standard Concept is shown by using a diagram (e.g., area), model (e.g., a hundreds square), or explanation (e.g., defining a rational number) The concept page explains why the skill works Always followed by connect and skill pages 31

31 Math - Concept Lesson Connect Page This instructional page always follows the Concept page plugs the concept into examples It connects directly to the Concept page in one of several ways It may show the same example as the Concept page, but spells out the actual procedure (i.e., algorithm) It may show an application or two of the concept 32

32 Math - Concept Lesson Skill Pages Lessons will have 2, 3, or 4 page skill pages Examples model strategies that students can use to solve problems Steps guide students through the solution process, using numbers, words, graphics as needed, based on the content of the lessons Solutions for the examples are given 33

33 Math Skill Lesson Start directly with a skill Work through many variants of its application Tools are built into the lesson to help students solve problems All skills are developed through examples 34

34 C3 Math- Standards for Mathematical Practices Aligned to instructional features Aligned to practice and assessment items 35

35 Math Problem Solving Lesson There are 4- and 6-page problemsolving lessons 4-step problem-solving process to approach any mathematical problem: 1. Read Understand the problem and what is being asked. 2. Plan Make a plan. Identify the steps necessary to solve the problem. 3. Solve Carry out the steps to solve the problem. 4. Check Check that the answer is correct. Each step is modeled and the pages are interactive Apply skills to real-world problem situations. 36

36 Math Practice All lessons will have two pages of practice and serve several purposes Provide hints and remember boxes at the beginning of the practice Provides students with a chance to practice what was taught in the lesson with questions designed to assess the standard arranged from easy to difficult Covers all aspects of the lesson s common core standards by using teaching as practice questions Offers a variety of question types: multiple choice, fill-ins, word problems, short- and extendedresponse questions 37

37 Math Domain Review 3 pages of questions that cover all standards taught in the domain Includes multiple choice, fill-ins, word problems, short- and extended-response questions Excellent practice tests for domain assessments (found in the assessment booklet) 38

38 Math Performance Tasks Appear at the end of each domain Complement instruction with non-routine application of domain skills Require students to perform a range of activities from drawing and building to writing Often ask students to work together to arrive at solutions 39

39 Math Additional Features Mathematical Practice Standards (MPS) Every skill page has interactive boxes to emphasize the MPs These boxes are always open ended to promote critical thinking Try Discuss Model Check 40

40 Math Additional Features Connect Math Activity and Problem Solving Pages These real-world connection pages are found throughout the book depending on the complexity level of the standard being addressed. 41
