The Common Core Mathematics Companion: The Standards Decoded, Grades K-2

What They Say, What They Mean, How to Teach Them
By: Linda M. Gojak, Ruth Harbin Miles

Series Creator: Jim Burke

This book is modeled after Jim Burke’s successful Common Core Companion Series. It is the first of two books (K-2, 3-5) in the series. The book will include a clear explanation of the mathematics within each domain, cluster, and standard and suggested grade level appropriate visual models and representations. It is a book for math teachers who may or may not be math specialists. As teachers plan and develop their curriculum, this book will help them determine important mathematics in a cluster and how that mathematics connects from one grade to the next as well as within a grade.

Description

Your user’s guide to the mathematics standards

In the 12 short months since the ELA versions of The Common Core Companions, Grades K-2 and 3-5, burst on the scene, they’ve already assisted tens of thousands of teachers with the day-to-day “what you do.” Teachers’ one big criticism: what about mathematics? Luckily NCTM past-president Linda Gojak and mathematics coach Ruth Harbin Miles stepped up to the task. The result? That version of the mathematics standards you wish you had.

Page by page, The Common Core Mathematics Companions clearly lay out:

  • The mathematics embedded in each standard for a deeper understanding of the content
  • Examples of what effective teaching and learning look like in the classroom
  • Connected standards within each domain so teachers can better appreciate how they relate
  • Priorities within clusters so teachers know where to focus their time
  • The three components of rigor: conceptual understanding, procedural skills, and applications
  • Vocabulary and suggested materials for each grade-level band with explicit connections to the standards
  • Common student misconceptions around key mathematical ideas with ways to address them

Don’t spend another minute poring over the mathematics standards. Gojak and Miles have already done the heavy-lifting for you. Focus instead on how to teach them, using The Common Core Mathematics Companion as your one-stop guide for teaching, planning, assessing, collaborating, and designing powerful mathematics curriculum.
