Common Core Learning Standards & Assessments - Math

Math Enrichment: Grades 3 - 5 Description: Participants will consider specific activities meant for classroom enrichment for advanced students. These activities go beyond the standards to deeply explore specific ideas. Activities will include using folded paper and hole punches to create complex symmetrical images (Grade 3), mirrors and pattern blocks to measure angles (Grade 4), and pattern blocks to multiply and divide fractions (Grade 5).

Parallels will be made with the pre-Common Core items and the possible paradigm shifts needed as it related to math instruction. We will examine questions with focus on mathematical language and patterns in structure, plan test taking strategies around findings, and create parallel assessment questions for immediate classroom instruction using the format of the test and the CCSS. Dates: Grade 3: August 12, 2015 or Jan. 13, 2016 Grade 4: August 14, 2015 or Jan. 25, 2016 Grade 5: August 19, 2015 or Jan. 22, 2016 Time: 8 am registration and coffee, 8:30 am-3 pm program, lunch on your own Audience: Grade 3-5 classroom, special education and AIS teachers Building teams are strongly encouraged to attend Location: SWBOCES, 450 Mamaroneck Avenue, 3rd Floor, Harrison, NY 10528 Fee: $184 per participant per day for CoSer 555 members $220 per participant per day for CoSer 555 non-members Presenter: Alexandra Greenberg Contact: Anna Marie Brancucci 914-345-8500, ext. 3125 abrancucci@swboces.org
