**Understanding the Common Core Math Standards**®

This workshop series provide participants an overview of the Common Core Math Standards and an opportunity to reach a common understanding about teaching and learning expectations defined by the Common Core Standards for Mathematics in each domain. As they work collaboratively to analyze and determine the cognitive demand(s) of the standards, participants explore possibilities for teaching and assessing, consider available school and classroom resources, and research the online resources available to support instruction and assessment in each domain. Individual workshops are offered for the following grade bands and respective domains.

**Common Core Math****Middle School (6–8)****Workshops**®- Understand the Common Core Math Domains: Geometry; Measurement and Data; Statistics and Probability
- Understand the Common Core Math Domains: Ratios and Proportional Relationships; the Number System
- Understand the Common Core Math Domains: Expressions and Equations; Functions

**Common Core Math****High School (9-12)****Workshops**®- Conceptual Categories: Number and Quantity and Modeling*
- Conceptual Categories: Algebra and Modeling*
- Conceptual Categories: Functions and Modeling*
- Conceptual Categories: Geometry and Modeling*
- Conceptual Categories: Statistics & Probability and Modeling*

**Note:**Leading researchers and some authors of CCSSM have suggested that the conceptual category, Modeling, is best interpreted in relation to other standards rather than in isolation.**OUTCOMES:**By the end of the workshop,

**will:***participants*- Have a common understanding about what students are expected to know and be able to do to demonstrate proficiency on the standards in the Common Core Math domains.
- Reach a common understanding of the cognitive demand(s) of the standards and how the level or rigor might be illuminated in classroom instruction and assessment
- Be familiar with available school, classroom, and online resources that support content-area instruction and assessment of the standards

By the end of the workshop,

**will have:***the school or district*- Teacher-created Common Core Math Analysis documents that teachers can use as a resource guide in lesson planning and delivering instruction on the standards

**TARGET AUDIENCE:**K–12 Math Educators**NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS:**40**NUMBER OF DAYS:**2 full-day sessions for each domain or conceptual category workshop**NOTE:**This workshop is grade-banded for K-2, 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12 Math educators (e.g., administrators, instructional leaders, teachers, and paraprofessionals).. The workshop can be facilitated during summer session, intercessions, pre-planning, post-planning, or professional learning days. The participation of Math instructional leaders is strongly encouraged.**Recommended Resources****Recommended Reading***Unwrapping the Standards: A Simple Process to Make Standards Manageable**by Larry Ainsworth**Understanding by Design*by Grant Wiggins & Jay McTighe*Common Core Mathematics in a PLC at Work: Grades 3 - 5 by*Matthew R.
