Common Core Learning Standards & Assessments - Math

Math Behind the Modules: Fractions Boot Camp Grades 6 → Building on Grade 5 Description: This workshop will focus on creating a thorough understanding of fractions as a concept. Teachers will examine fraction representational methods such as Area Models, Tape Diagrams and Number Lines as they pertain to the CCLS. The focus will be on techniques and strategies encouraging students to deepen their understanding of fractions. Participants will focus on problem solving techniques related to all four operations but mainly within the context of multiplication and division. Teachers will engage in discussion illustrating instructional strategies helpful in transitioning students' idea of fractions as units to the idea of fractions as a ratio. As a result of this session participants will: • Understand the applications of visual models as they are appear in the Modules • Develop a systematic approach to fraction-related problem solving • Understand the transition between concept of fraction as units to fractions as ratios Date: Oct. 30, 2015 Time: 8 am registration and coffee, 8:30 am-3 pm program, lunch on your own Audience: Grade 5-6 math teachers, 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 for CoSer 555 members $220 per participant for CoSer 555 non-members Presenter: Alexandra Greenberg Contact: Anna Marie Brancucci 914-345-8500, ext. 3125 abrancucci@swboces.org NYS Common Core Math Exam Grades 6-8: Lessons Learned and Instructional Implications Description: In an effort to deepen our understanding of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and what is being assessed on the new Common Core State Exam, participants will analyze and evaluate test questions with a focus on their relationship to the standards and level of difficulty. 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 6: August 21, 2015 or Jan. 7, 2016 Grade 7: August 10, 2015 or Dec. 4, 2015 Grade 8: August 17, 2015 or Jan. 21, 2016 Time: 8 am registration and coffee, 8:30 am-3 pm program, lunch on your own Audience: Grade 6-8 classroom, special education and AIS teachers Building teams are strongly encouraged to attend.
