Numbers & Operation in Students’ work in the base-­‐ten system is intertwined with Base Ten their work on counting & cardinality, & with the meanings & properties of addition, subtraction, multiplication, & division. Work in the base-­‐ten system relies on these meanings & properties, but also contributes to deepening students’ understanding of them. Numbers & Operations The meaning of fractions In Grades 1 & 2, students use Fractions fraction language to describe partitions of shapes into equal shares.2.G.3 In Grade 3 they start to develop the idea of a fraction more formally, building on the idea of partitioning a whole into equal parts. The whole can be a shape such as a circle or rectangle, a line segment, or any one finite entity susceptible to subdivision & measure-­‐
ment. In Grade 4, this is extended to include wholes that are collections of objects. Measurement & Data Measurement: Geometric measurement connects the two most critical domains of early mathematics, geometry & number, with each providing conceptual support to the other. Measurement is central to mathematics, to other areas of mathematics (e.g., laying a sensory & conceptual foundation for arithmetic with fractions), to other subject matter domains, especially science, & to activities in everyday life. For these reasons, measurement is a core component of the mathematics curriculum. Data: As students work with data in Grades K–5, they build Info. Source or For More Info:­‐

Kindergarten work with data uses counting & order relations. First-­‐ & second-­‐graders solve addition & subtraction problems in a data context. In Grades 3–5, work with data is closely related to the number line, fraction concepts, fraction arithmetic, & solving problems that involve the four operations. Geometric & spatial thinking are important in & of themselves, because they connect mathematics with the physical world, & play an important role in modeling phenomena whose origins are not necessarily physical, e.g., as networks or graphs. They are also important because they support the development of number & arithmetic concepts & skills. Thus, geometry is essential for all grade levels for many reasons: its mathematical content, its roles in physical sciences, engineering, & many other subjects, & its strong aesthetic connections. This progression discusses the most important goals for elementary geometry according to three categories. Geometric shapes, their components (e.g., sides, angles, faces), their properties, & their categorization based on those properties. Composing & decomposing geometric shapes.

Students use ratios in geometry & in algebra when they study similar figures & slopes of lines, & later when they study sine, cosine, tangent, & other trigonometric ratios in high school. Students use ratios when they work with situations involving constant rates of change, & later in calculus when they work with average & instantaneous rates of change of functions. An understanding of ratio is essential in the sciences to make sense of quantities that involve derived attributes such as speed, acceleration, density, surface tension, electric or magnetic field strength, & to understand percentages & ratios used in describing chemical solutions. Ratios & percentages are also useful in many situations in daily life, such as in cooking & in calculating tips, miles per gallon, taxes, & discounts. They also are also involved in a variety of descriptive statistics, including demographic, economic, medical, meteorological, & agricultural statistics (e.g., birth rate, per capita income, body mass index, rain fall, & crop yield) & underlie a variety of measures, e.g., in finance (exchange rate), medicine (dose for a given body weight), & technology (kilobits per second). In Grades 6–8, students build on two important concept-­‐
tions which have developed throughout K–5, in order to understand the rational numbers as a number system. The first is the representation of whole numbers & fractions as points on the number line, & the second is a firm Info. Source or For More Info: page 2­‐
09.pdf Acronym or Term Meaning EE Expressions & Equations SP Statistics & Probability 9 Definition/ Meaning in terms of Common Core understanding of the properties of operations on whole numbers & fractions. Mathematical expressions express calculations with numbers. Some of the numbers might be given explicitly, like 2 or 3/4 . Other numbers in the expression might be represented by letters, such as x, y, P, or n. The calculation an expression represents might use only a single opera-­‐
tion, as in 4 + 3 or 3x, or it might use a series of nested or parallel operations, as in 3(a + 9)q -­‐ 9/b. An expression can consist of just a single number, even 0. In Grade 6, students build on the knowledge & experi-­‐
ences in data analysis developed in earlier grades. They develop a deeper understanding of variability & more precise descriptions of data distributions, using numerical measures of center & spread, & terms such as cluster, peak, gap, symmetry, skew, & outlier. They begin to use histograms & box plots to represent & analyze data distributions. As in earlier grades, students view statistical reasoning as a four-­‐step investigative process: Formulate questions that can be answered with data Design & use a plan to collect relevant data Analyze the data with appropriate methods Interpret results & draw valid conclusions from the data that relate to the questions posed. In Grade 7, students move from concentrating on analysis of data to production of data, understanding that good answers to statistical questions depend upon a good plan for collecting data relevant to the questions of interest.

Source or For More Info: Because statistically sound data production is based on random sampling, a probabilistic concept, students must develop some knowledge of probability before launching into sampling. Their introduction to probability is based on seeing probabilities of chance events as long-­‐run relative frequencies of their occurrence, & many opportunities to develop the connection between theoretical probability models & empirical probability approximations. This connection forms the basis of statistical inference. Eighth graders apply their experience with the coordinate plane & linear functions in the study of association between two variables related to a question of interest. As in the univariate case, analysis of bivariate measurement data graphed on a scatterplot proceeds by describing shape, center, & spread. But now “shape” refers to a cloud of points on a plane, “center” refers to a line drawn through the cloud that captures the essence of its shape, & “spread” refers to how far the data points stray from this central line. Students extend their understanding of “cluster” & “outlier” from univariate data to bivariate data. They summarize bivariate categorical data using two-­‐way tables of counts and/or proportions, & examine these for patterns of association. Functions describe situations in which one quantity is determined by another. The area of a circle, e.g., is a function of its radius. When describing relationships between quantities, the defining characteristic of a function is that the input value determines the output­‐
ression_functions_2013_07_02.pdf page 4 Acronym or Term Meaning Definition/ Meaning in terms of Common Core Info. Source or For More Info: value or, equivalently, that the output value depends upon the input value. Since the elementary grades, students have been describing patterns & expressing relationships between quantities. These ideas become semi-­‐formal in Grade 8 with the introduction of the concept of function: a rule that assigns to each input exactly one output.8.F.1 Building on their earlier experiences with graphs & tables in Grades 6 & 7, students a routine of exploring functional relationships algebraically, graphically, numerically in tables, & through verbal descriptions.8.F.2 Domains & Clusters 9-­‐12: Info from Progressions Documents: Number & Quantity N-­‐RN The Real Number System In Grades 6–8 students began to widen the possible types­‐

moving on to algebraic expressions in Grades 6–8. The ression_algebra_2013_07_03.pdf middle grades standards in Expression & Equations build a ramp from arithmetic expressions in elementary school to page 4 more sophisticated work with algebraic expressions in high school. As the complexity of expressions increases, students continue to see them as being built out of basic operations: they see expressions as sums of terms & products of factors.A-­‐SSE.1a Students learn to use the properties of operations to write­‐
expressions in different but equivalent forms. At some content/uploads/2013/07/ccss_prog
point they see equivalent expressions, particularly poly-­‐
ression_algebra_2013_07_03.pdf nomial & rational expressions, as naming some underlying thing.A-­‐APR.1 There are at least two ways this can go. If the page 7 function concept is developed before or con-­‐currently with the study of polynomials, then a polynomial can be identified with the function it defines. Another approach is to think of polynomials as elements of a formal number system, in which you introduce the “number” x & see what numbers you can write down with it. Each approach has its advantages & disadvantages; the former approach Acronym or Term A-­‐CED 13 Meaning Creating Equations Definition/ Meaning in terms of Common Core is more common. Whichever are chosen & whether or not the choice is explicitly stated, a curricular implementation should nonetheless be constructed to be consistent with the choice that has been made. Either way, polynomials & rational expressions come to form a system in which they can be added, subtracted, multiplied anddivided.A-­‐APR.7 Polynomials are analogous to the integers; rational expressions are analogous to the rational numbers Students have been seeing & writing equations since elementary grades, with mostly linear equations in middle grades. At first glance it might seem that the progression from middle grades to high school is fairly straightforward: the repertoire of functions that is acquired during high school allows students to create more complex equations, including equations arising from linear & quadratic ex-­‐
pressions, & simple rational & exponential expressions;A-­‐
students are no longer limited largely to linear equations in modeling relationships between quantities with equations in two variables;A-­‐CED.2 & students start to work with inequalities & systems of equations. A-­‐CED.3 Two developments in high school complicate this picture. First, students in high school start using parameters in their equations, to represent whole classes of equations F-­‐LE.5 or to represent situations where the equation is to be adjusted to fit data. Second, modeling becomes a major objective in high school.

This connotes not only an increase in the complexity of the equations studied, but an upgrade of the student’s ability in every part of the modeling cycle. A written sequence of steps to solve an equation is code for a narrative line of reasoning using words like “if,” “then,” “for all,” & “there exists.” In the process of learning to solve equations, students learn certain stan-­‐
dard “if–then” moves, e.g., “if x = y then x + 2 = y + 2. The danger in learning algebra is that students emerge with nothing but the moves, which may make it difficult to detect incorrect or made-­‐up moves later on. Thus the first requirement in the standards in this domain is that students understand that solving equations is a process of reasoning.A-­‐REI.1 This does not necessarily mean that they always write out the full text; part of the advantage of algebraic notation is its compactness. Once students know what the code stands for, they can start writing in code. Thus, eventually students might go from without intermediate steps. Building on semi-­‐formal notions of functions from Grade 8, students in high school begin to use formal notation & language for functions. Now the input/output relationship is a correspondence between two sets: the domain & the range.F-­‐IF.1 The domain is the set of input values, & the range is the set of output values.

The Building Functions group focuses on building functions to model relationships, & building new functions from existing functions This cluster of standards is very closely related to the algebra standard on writing equations in two variables. A-­‐CED.2 Indeed, that algebra standard might well be met by a curriculum in the same unit as this cluster. Although students will eventually study various families of functions, it is useful for them to have experiences of building functions from scratch, without the aid of a host of special recipes, by grappling with a concrete context for clues.F-­‐BF.1a Construct & compare linear & exponential models & solve problems involves distinguishing between situations that can be modeled with linear functions & with exponential functions F-­‐LE.1a & turns on understanding their rates of growth & looking for indications of these types of growth rates (MP.7). One indicator of these growth rates is differences over equal intervals, given, e.g., in a table of values drawn from the situation—with the understanding that such a table may only approximate the situation (MP.4). Students begin their study of trigonometry with right triangles. G-­‐SRT.6 Right triangle trigonometry is concerned with ratios of sides of right triangles, allowing functions of angle measures to be defined in terms of these ratios. This limits the angles considered to those between 0° & 90° In this progression the following ideas are added to the Info. Source or For More Info:­‐

They also add a key measure of variation to their toolkits Making Inferences & Students move beyond analyzing data to making sound Justifying Conclusions statistical decisions based on probability models. The reasoning process is as follows: develop a statistical question in the form of a hypothesis (supposition) about a population parameter; choose a probability model for collecting data relevant to that parameter; collect data; compare the results seen in the data with what is expected under the hypothesis. If the observed results are far away from what is expected & have a low probability of occurring under the hypothesis, then that hypothesis is called into question. In other words, the evidence against the hypothesis is weighed by probability. S-­‐IC.1 Conditional Probability & In high school, the relative frequency approach to Rules of Probability probability is extended to conditional probability & independence, rules of probability & their use in finding probabilities of compound events, & the use of probability distributions to solve problems involving expected value.
