This last week I took my kids to visit the Science Center and it really got me thinking about Common Core Math. It is controversial; some people like the rigor, some people think it's developmentally inappropriate, and some of us just have to teach it. I found myself thinking about the types of word problems that people associate with Common Core Math, and I thought of a few of my own real-world problems. For instance…
If a 3 1/2 yr. old who is still potty-training downs a 20 oz bottle of water in one go, what will be the rate of potty-checks per hour that I have to conduct to avoid an 'accident'?
The volume of a sphere is equal to
If the radius of a ping pong ball is about 1 cm, how many ping pong balls can a toddler fit in her mouth?
Raffle Week 2 – FREE Assessment Bundle
…including the Common Core Posters for all Standards, the Assessments with Learning Goals and Scales for all standards, and the Student Portfolio Pages. Winners will be notified by email and listed in the blog post for the following week. You will be able to chose the grade level you need (3-8), so you can enter the raffle any week, or every week to win!
Each Quiz is one two-sided page with one math problem for each Common Core standard for that domain. The number corresponds to the standard number. Each problem has the learning goal stated to help kids focus on the goal and make the connection between the quiz, and their work in the standards. If you don't use Common Core standards verbatim, they are still useable to assess the grade level skills. Check them out for yourself!
If you find that your students struggle with content from earlier grade levels, consider introducing The Posters with Learning Goals and Scales, or the Assessments to help you quickly determine what level of instruction they need to advance.
