Transforming the standards into learning outcomes just got a lot easier

In this resource, you can see in an instant how teaching to your state standards should look and sound in the classroom. Under the premise that math is math, the authors provide a Cross-Referencing Index for states implementing their own specific mathematics standards, allowing you to see and understand which page number to turn to for standards-based teaching ideas.

It’s all here, page by page:

  • The mathematical progression of each conceptual category, starting with modeling as a unifying theme and moving through number and quantity, algebra, functions, geometry, and statistics and probability, building from eighth-grade standards
  • The mathematics embedded in each conceptual category for a deeper understanding of the content
    How standards connect within and across domains and to previous grade standards, so teachers can better appreciate how they relate
  • How content standards connect with the standards for mathematical practice, with a focus on modeling as a unifying theme
  • Example tasks, progressions of tasks, and descriptions of what teachers and students should be doing to foster deep learning

Your Mathematics Standards Companion is your one-stop guide for teaching, planning, assessing, collaborating, and designing powerful high school mathematics curriculum in any state or district.

Wayne Gary Martin

W. Gary Martin is Emily R. and Gerald S. Leischuck Endowed Professor in the Department of Curriculum and Teaching at Auburn University, where he teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in mathematics education and serves as co-director of the Mathematics Teacher Education Partnership (www.MTE-Partnership.org), a national coalition of universities seeking to improve the preparation of secondary mathematics teachers. He has been a writer on multiple standards documents, including Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics [NCTM], 2000), Focus in High School Mathematics: Reasoning and Sense Making (NCTM, 2009), and Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All (NCTM, 2014). Most recently, he was the lead writer for high school on the Standards for Preparing Teachers of Mathematics (Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators, 2017). He has presented extensively on mathematics education, particularly the teaching and learning of geometry, mathematics curriculum and standards, and mathematics teacher preparation. Previously, Martin served as the director of research for NCTM and has also held positions at the University of Hawai?i and Northern Illinois University. He began his career as a high school mathematics teacher, a role that remains central to his professional identity.

Basil M. Conway IV

Basil Conway IV is an associate professor of mathematics education in the College of Education and Health Professions at Columbus State University and serves as the mathematics education graduate programs director. He serves on numerous doctoral committees as both a chair and methodologist. He earned his BS, MS, and PhD. in mathematics education from Auburn University in 2005, 2012, and 2015, respectively. He also completed his MS in statistical science at Colorado State University in 2010.

Basil previously spent 10 years teaching in public middle and high schools before he became a teacher educator. During this time, he also worked as an instructor at a local junior college. Over the past 17 years of service in teaching mathematics and future teachers of mathematics, he has served in various local mathematics education leadership positions and organizations including Transforming East Alabama Mathematics (TEAM-Math), Auburn University’s Teacher Leader Academy, East Alabama Council for Teachers of Mathematics, Woodrow Wilson Fellow, National Mathematics and Science Initiative, and A+ College Ready. He has published works related to teaching mathematics for social justice in numerous books and journals and has a special interest in statistics education.

Basil’s lens for teaching and student learning draws heavily from Vygotsky’s theory of social constructivism in which language and culture play essential roles in human intellectual development. Thus, he believes the co-construction of knowledge is paramount in the development of students’ social, religious, and mathematical identities. He believes teachers, parents, other students, cultural norms, and other cultural communicative devices play a critical role in shaping students’ knowledge of themselves, faith, and mathematics.
