Network Contact - Yuet Chu - ychu@schools.nyc.govComing this SpringMath Lesson Study We will collaborate with Metamorphosis Teaching & Learning Communities to work with teachers to explore the sweet-spot where the Math Practice Standards intersects with the Content Standards. Each grade level cycle will allow participants to work across schools to do some math, plan a lesson together for a host school, observe implementation of the planned lesson, debrief and revise for a different class / school, and observe a second implementation. These cycles will allow educators a chance to collaborate, plan, reflect, and learn. Each school team will lead the practice at their respective schools. We aspired to build our collective math-muscles, enhance instructional leadership capacity at our schools, and learn from the best of the best. Middle School Cycle 1/13 & 2/5 - New Design Middle School 2/25 - Community Action School 3/19 - University Neighborhood Middle School. High School Cycle 2/4 & 3/12 - Green School 2/26 - American Sign Language HS 3/12 - TBD Elementary School Cycle3/13 & 3/20 - PS87 William Sherman School Day 3 - PS151 Yorkville Community School Day 4 - PS130 Hernando DeSoto School Common Core Mathematics Resources http://insidemathematics.org This website continues to evolve and now has video clips and mathematical tasks that exemplify the Mathematical Practice Standards. Not every grade is represented, but the clips and tasks are K-12 and cover every practice standard. If your seventh grade team wants to see a good example of Practice Standard 3, Construct Viable Arguments and Critique the Reasoning of Others, there is a nice video clip and task for them to view and discuss. When you click on play for the clips you will also get a menu for aligned tasks and sample work. www.engageny.org New York State website for all things Common Core as well as Teacher and Leader Effectiveness. Both the Principal and Teacher Tabs have resources for the Common Core Learning Standards. http://schools.nyc.gov/Academics/CommonCoreLibrary/default.htm. DOE website for the "bundles"/units for both Mathematics and ELA. The bundles continue to evolve and improve. http://parcconline.org/ The PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) website offers information from the 24 state consortium that is developing the assessments for CCLS to be launched in 2014. Most recently the website has posted the final draft of the PARCC Model Content Frameworks. This extensive document gives important insight into the content and practice standards that will be emphasised for grades 3-11. http://illustrativemathematics.org/ Offers valuable guidance around tasks that illustrate important parts of the CCLS. Tasks will be added weekly. This website is authored by the core writers of the Common Core in Mathematics. http://math.arizona.edu/~ime/progressions/ This website authored by many of the writers of the CCLS Mathematics offers documents that describe the progression of key Domains across several grade levels. It really gives you insight into how these key mathematical concepts are developed. The "progressions" can be valuable to grade level teams as they adjust their current math units to better meet the CCLS. http://noycefdn.org/resources.php This website was put together by the Silicon Valley Mathematics Initiative and has a bank of good mathematics tasks, rubrics and sample student work grades 2-12. (Go to MARS tasks & tools and click on a year.) http://nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/itemmaps/ This website links you to the NAEP National Assessment for Educational Progress , item bank. You can dig into the archives from all the years of NAEP. Many of these questions are high level and closer to the PARCC 2014-15 assessments than our State Exams. The questions are from the 4th and 8th grades but can be adjusted up or down, (The NAEP is the gold standard for standardized assessments and is a much more "cognitively demanding" than our current NY state exams. http://www.ccsstoolbox.com/parcc/PARCCPrototype_main.html Great website for CC tasks with scoring guides from the writers of the mathematics CC and the Dana Center. Elementary, Middle and High School Levels. http://illustrativemathematics.org/ Another great website created by many of the Common Core Mathematics writers. The site shows many illustrations of the CC content standards K-12 . | Resources for Elementary http://nlvm.usu.edu/en/nav/vlibrary.html This website for is for K-12 students and teachers and offers virtual manipulatives/interactive learning tools that are concept and skill based. It is the the product of a NSF University based project and is very engaging. http://www.fi.uu.nl/rekenweb/en/ This website from the Frudenthal Institute in the Netherlands contains great real thinking mathematics games for k-6 students. http://www.k-5mathteachingresources.com/ This website provides math activities K-5 and has a very comprehensive ECAM resources. Websites for Secondary 6-12 Virtual Manipulatives http://nlvm.usu.edu/en/nav/vlibrary.html This website for is for K-12 students and teachers and offers virtual manipulatives/interactive learning tools that are concept and skill based. It is the the product of a NSF University based project and is very engaging. Open Reference-- http://www.mathopenref.com/ This website is designed for secondary geometry students and teachers. It offers very nice virtual tools and animations to help geometry come alive. Illuminations -- http://illuminations.nctm.org/ -- NCTM sponsored. Activities, Lessons, Web Links -- great place to find lessons Pathways from Achieve http://www.achieve.org/mathpathways offers HS course pathways through the conceptual catagories of the HS mathematics CCLS Mathematics Assessment Project -- http://map.mathshell.org/materials/ -- Contains links to lessons, sample assessments and other resources matched to CCLS. Nrich -- http://nrich.maths.org/public/ -- Provides rich problems weekly on different levels of difficulty. Some of these might make good practice problems for assessments. The site Includes a link to search all problems by topic. Because it is a European site, some of the vocabulary is different and may need to either be explained or edited (ex: use of "gradient" instead of "slope". Dan Meyer’s Math Blog -- http://blog.mrmeyer.com/ -- Dan Meyer's blog that contains many video clips he uses to engage students in mathematics. His goal is to get students to ask the question before giving them the tools, measurements, etc. needed to solve the problem. He includes links to the curricula he uses to teach Algebra and Geometry. Other great discussions and resources can be found on the site. Algebra for All -- http://a4a.learnport.org/ -- This is a site for sharing lesson plans and ideas related to teaching algebra. It includes a discussion board, lesson plans, documents, and more shared by teachers for teachers. A Recursive Process Blog -- http://blog.recursiveprocess.com/ -- Another math blog with great problems, pictures, and resources for different high school math topics. Yummy Math -- http://www.yummymath.com/ -- a blog designed to post real-life applications of mahtmeatics in attempt to answer the question "When are we ever going to have to use this?" MIT Blossoms -- http://blossoms.mit.edu/ --Site sponsered by MIT includes Video math and science lessons that can be searched by standards. Websites for Mathematical Resources and Information http://mathworld.wolfman.com/classroom This website is part of Wolfram and offers extensive updated mathematics information for mathematicians as well as educators. This is a huge website with many links to good resources. http://www.learner.org/interactives/dailymath - Real-life math applications in banking, architecture, cooking, population growth, and gambling. |
