Smart Core and Core Graduation Paths Core Graduation Math Requirements • 4 Units –

Smart Core and Core Graduation Paths Core Graduation Math Requirements • 4 Units – One (1) unit of Algebra or equivalent [Algebra A&B] – One (1) unit of Geometry or equivalent [Geometry A&B] – All math units must build on the base of algebra and geometry knowledge and skills. – Comparable concurrent credit courses may be substituted where applicable. http: //www. arkansased. org/public/userfiles/Legal-Current%20 Rules/ade_282_standards_0709_current. pdf NOTICE: Changes in the Arkansas Academic Challenge (Lottery) Scholarship requirements mandate that students graduating in 2014 and beyond must graduate under Smart Core.

Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) • Accessing the Common Core State Standards:

Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) • Accessing the Common Core State Standards: www. corestandards. org • While there are other sites out there that are related to the CCSS, www. corestandards. org is the official site.

Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) • How to read the CCSSM –

Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) • How to read the CCSSM – Grade level standards are categorized by 3 different groupings or “grain sizes” • Standards – define what students should understand be able to do. • Clusters – are groups of related standards. • Domains – larger groups of related standards.

Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) • How to read the PARCC Model

Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) • How to read the PARCC Model Content Frameworks (MCF) http: //www. parcconline. org/parcc-model-content-frameworks – The MCF provides the following information: • • • Individual end-of-course overviews Examples of key advances from previous grades or courses Discussion of Mathematical Practices in relation to course content Fluency recommendations Pathway summary table Assessment limits table for standards assessed on more than one end-of-course test.

Algebra I & Algebra A/B • ADE’s position regarding offering Algebra I or Algebra

Algebra I & Algebra A/B • ADE’s position regarding offering Algebra I or Algebra A/B at the junior high level. – The majority of 8 th grade students probably need to be enrolled in a regular 8 th grade CCSS math course. – Only exceptional students should be enrolled in Algebra I or Algebra A/B at the middle school level. – Reminders: • Course Approval Renewals • Content has moved around/down • Teach the content of the course

Algebra I & Algebra A/B – Suggestions: • Schools need to have and follow

Algebra I & Algebra A/B – Suggestions: • Schools need to have and follow a plan to place students in Algebra I or Algebra A/B at the 5 -8 level. • Though Algebra A/B is an available option right now, schools need to help students and parents make informed decisions that are in the best interest of the student.

Algebra I & Algebra A/B Framework Documents (3) for Algebra I, Algebra A, &

Algebra I & Algebra A/B Framework Documents (3) for Algebra I, Algebra A, & Algebra B • Algebra I – Committee based development – Familiar form – Precise language – PARCC alignment

Algebra I & Algebra A/B • Algebra A & Algebra B – Two separate

Algebra I & Algebra A/B • Algebra A & Algebra B – Two separate documents – Committee was charged to not simply lop the standards in half, but to consider: • What standards could stand alone in each course • What standards should span both courses • The emphasis of each standard in each course and how that emphasis changed.

Algebra I & Algebra A/B • Algebra I & Algebra A/B – The committee

Algebra I & Algebra A/B • Algebra I & Algebra A/B – The committee worked to unpack the standards and place them within themes of instruction. – We have included those themes as an appendix to the documents. (option for schools to use)
