CCRS Math Resources

“Use Appropriate Tools Strategically.” Huh?

In this 5-minute video, Annie Fetter of the Math Forum makes a case for what teachers might do to foster this practice in our students.

Achieve the Core – Math Standards

The site describes itself as "full of free content designed to help educators understand and implement the Common Core and other college and career ready standards." Resources include CCRS-aligned tasks, activities, lessons and more, but also materials to support educators in understanding the standards and the content.

CCRS Individualized Instruction Planning Tool – Math

The CCRS Individualized Instruction Planning Tool is intended to help teachers in one-room school house or other individualized instruction settings plan and document standards-aligned experiences for all students. This document could be used as a teacher planning tool or as a tracking document in a student’s folder.

CCRS Math Content Progressions

This document contains the mathematics CCRS organized by level and also by domain, to highlight the important progressions in the CCRS. Standards associated with the Major Work of the Level (MWOTL) are also identified in this document.

CCRS Math Lesson/Unit Planning Template

This standards-aligned lesson plan template is designed to be used to incorporate the 3 CCRS Math shifts into unit/lesson plans. This template also provides opportunities to reflect on all the major content standards used in Minnesota’s ABE system and other important components of adult numeracy instruction.

CCRS Math Standards

The College and Career Readiness Standards for Adult Education (CCRS) are a central component of the content standards being implemented in Minnesota ABE. The CCRS is divided into two sections: English Language Arts and Literacy (ELA) and Mathematics.

CCRS Mathematical Practice 7 – Webcast

This webcast highlights Mathematical Practice 7 - Make use of structure. It is one of a series of 8 webcasts, the purpose of which is to give adult educators a better sense of each of the 8 Mathematical Practices of the CCRS and to suggest ways to encourage the Practices with their students.

CCRS Mathematical Practice 8 – Webcast

This webcast highlights Mathematical Practice 8 - Express regularity. It is one of a series of 8 webcasts, the purpose of which is to give adult educators a better sense of each of the 8 Mathematical Practices of the CCRS and to suggest ways to encourage the Practices with their students.

Coherence in Our Classrooms

Common Core (K-12) Math Standards

The College & Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) are based on the Common Core standards. Some teachers who teach low levels of numeracy have found looking at the kindergarten and first grade Common Core math standards helpful.

Math Ceiling

This post from Math with Bad Drawings blog explores the following questions related to the Key Shift of rigor: Do we have a "math ceiling" where some math is beyond our ability to comprehend? If a student can perform the math task I am targeting without conceptual understanding (i.e., they know the procedure, but not why it works), do they really need more?

Math Lesson/Unit Plan – Describing & Distinguishing Shapes

This beginning ESL Math Lesson/Unit Plan focuses on acquiring and using vocabulary to describe the attributes of shapes and groups of objects.

Math Lesson/Unit Plan – Generate & Analyze Patterns

This Low to High Intermediate ABE level Math Lesson/Unit Plan focuses on standard 4.OA.5, generate and analyze patterns.

Navigating the CCRS Tools – Math

This document provides an overview of the tools to support CCRS Implementation.

Progression Documents for Standards

These documents explore the progressions in the Common Core mathematical standards across a number of grade levels. The progressions may point out "cognitive difficulties and pedagogical solutions, and give more detail on particularly knotty areas of the mathematics." They are useful when considering instructional sequence and curriculum.

Reaching into Rigor

What Does “Coherence” Look Like?

Author Robert Kaplinsky's accessible explanation addresses what coherence looks like in math instruction.

What Does It Really Mean to Look for and Make Use of Structure?

Description: "We will work to clarify what MP7 looks like in K-5 classrooms by exploring generalizations about operating with odd and even numbers, examining both addends unknown problems, developing mathematical arguments, and creating representations to prove our claims. We will also analyze student thinking around these ideas with the use of classroom video."

Where Do Math, ELA and Science Standards Overlap?

A graphic organizer to show that the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for Mathematics, English Language Arts, and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) have significant overlap and can be collectively implemented for students’ benefit.
