Transforming the standards into learning outcomes just got a lot easier
In this expansion of the original popular Common Core Mathematics Companion, 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-referenced index for states implementing their own specific mathematics standards and high school course pathways, showing which of your standards are the same as the CCSS-M, which differ and 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.
