Your Mathematics Standards Companion, Grades 3-5
What They Mean and How to Teach Them

Additional resources:


June 2017 | 360 pages | Corwin

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 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
  • Sample lesson plans and lesson planning templates
  • Cross-referenced index listing the standards in the following states, explaining what is unique to the standards of each state

Your Mathematics Standards Companion is your one-stop guide for teaching, planning, assessing, collaborating, and designing powerful mathematics curriculum.
