Transcript of 5th Grade Common Core - Mathematics Overview

5th Grade Common Core - Mathematics Overview
What is "Common Core"?
The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. These standards are designed to be rigorous and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers.
Why "Common Core"?
The way we taught students in the past simply doesn't prepare them for the higher demands of college and careers today and in the future. Forest Ridge School District #142 and other districts throughout the country are working to improve teaching and learning to ensure that all children will graduate high school with the skills they need to be successful.

3 Math Common Core shifts...
* Teachers will concentrate on teaching a more focused set of math concepts and skills.

* Students will "master" important ideas and skills in a more organized way throughout the year and from one grade to the next.

* Teachers will use "rich and challenging" math content to engage students in solving real-world problems in order to inspire greater interests in mathematics.
Available 5th Grade Mathematics Teacher Resources
