Global Math Department

Global Math Department | Resources for Elementary Mathematics | Scoop.it
We are math teachers who share what we've learned, cause we don't want our classes to suck the energy from students. Professional development among friends, not just colleagues. Fun! Immediately useful! Interesting!
Tracy B. Watterson's insight:

I learned of this group of educators while at a CCSSO meeting last week on Math research and practice.

The University of Arizona - Institute for Mathematics & Education

The University of Arizona - Institute for Mathematics & Education | Resources for Elementary Mathematics | Scoop.it

The Common Core State Standards in mathematics were built on progressions: narrative documents describing the progression of a topic across a number of grade levels, informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics. These documents were spliced together and then sliced into grade level standards. From that point on the work focused on refining and revising the grade level standards. The early drafts of the progressions documents no longer correspond to the current state of the standards.

The Ongoing Assessment Project

The Ongoing Assessment Project | Resources for Elementary Mathematics | Scoop.it

OGAP has developed a rich bank of assessment items, detailed learning progression frameworks, and professional development materials for three major strands of grades 3-8 mathematics content: multiplicative reasoning, fractions, and proportions. These mathematics topics represent almost 80% of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) at respective grade levels. OGAP works most effectively where teachers have time to examine student work together in professional learning communities or grade level meetings, and have a support structure of coaches or teacher leaders to provide ongoing support.

Learning Trajectories for the K- Common Core Math Standards

Learning Trajectories for the K- Common Core Math Standards | Resources for Elementary Mathematics | Scoop.it

Welcome to TurnOnCCMath.net!  The GISMO research team at North Carolina State University has developed 18 learning trajectories that unpack the K-8 Common Core State Standards for Mathematics from the standpoint of student learning, and elaborate the underlying scientific research in mathematics education. The hexagon map illustrates these learning trajectories, standard by standard.  Clicking on a hexagon or a trajectory takes you to detailed descriptors that articulate students' progression from prior knowledge and naïve conceptions to more sophisticated mathematical concepts and reasoning. TurnOnCCMath is a comprehensive resource to support teachers, teacher educators, professional development providers, and district and state-level curriculum experts in interpreting the CCSS-M for instructional implementation. Documented throughout with citations from research and practitioner journals, TurnOnCCMath will also support educational researchers in identifying fruitful areas for further research on student learning.itle
