Deep Dive into the Math Shifts
This module fosters a careful understanding of the math Shifts. Participants take a deep dive into the major work of grades K-8, build a deeper understanding of the coherence of the Standards, and work through sample problems that reflect the "rigor" expected by the Standards.
Read this first! Detailed guide for presenters including a summary of the activities, suggested delivery of module, and annotations for the additional resources.
Deep Dive into Math Shifts - Presentations
- 35-slide PPT
Engaging with the Content Activity: Focus Strongly Where the Standards Focus
Practicing with the Shifts: Coherence Card Activity
Participants get involved in uncovering the thoughtful progressions and themes woven into the Standards. Participation in this activity makes vivid the concept of coherence across grades and within grades.
Practicing with the Shifts: Rigor Activity, Sample Problems
Participants solve problems developed to illustrate key shifts in CCSSM. They analyze and evaluate sample problems for alignment to the Standards and their illustration of Rigor. The sample problems encourage discussion about conceptual understanding, procedural skill and fluency and application. 11-pg doc.
Extension Activity: Creating Problems
Participants use an understanding of focus, coherence, and rigor to create a set of aligned problems in one domain over a particular grade band.
