Common Core Math (CCM)
Common Core Math (CCM) has received a lot of press – some of it good and some of it not so good. Personally, I find the CCM incorporates just plain, good ole' teaching practices – critical thinking and questioning, discovering patterns and checking your work as well as real-world, hands-on practice. The mantra of Common Core is simple – getting students “college and career ready.” How can you go wrong with that?
Below is a snapshot of the 3rd grade math skills. Most of the skills remain the same with a few changes such as decimals being taught in the 4th grade instead of in the 3rd grade. The biggest change is in “how” we (the teachers) teach math. Math practices* are the foundation of CCM and will determine its effectiveness and success.
