Common Core Math Standards
Old 02-08-2011, 11:22 AM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #1

My school is in the process of selecting a new math program for elementary. The two we like the most so far are Math in Focus (Singapore Approach) and Envision. I'm not a math teacher, but I'm still involved in the curriculum revision process (small private school = many hats!). Does anyone know how these programs compare to the common core standards?

Singapore Math

It's been a few years since I taught Singapore Math (with Primary Maths, not the newer Math in Focus), but from what I remember, I think it lines up with the common core standards pretty well. The area I would look at most closely to see how it lines up would be measurement - especially anything that could also be taught in science, like temperature or metric conversions, and telling time or elapsed time. But in general, I feel like they do the teach less, more in-depth approach really well.
One thing: If you do go with Math in Focus, get all the professional development you can that goes with it. (I know, sometimes easier said than funding.) My guess is that Math in Focus is probably more user-friendly than Primary Maths (because it's actually an American version, not just a direct import), but when we were implementing, the professional development helped A LOT.

I honestly don't know if any of the current produced programs actually align to Common Core. If your school really wants to be aligned to CC then I'd wait a year or so until the publishers come out with new editions that are aligned.

I agree with TitleMath. My district has decided to wait a couple of years to adopt any new curriculum. They want to wait until the publishing companies have caught up with what is happening with the CCS.

I like EnVisions

We adopted Envisions K-5 a couple of years ago in four of the schools in my district. Pearson has aligned the CCSS to our EnVisions texts. We have Prentice Hall, also Pearson, in 6-8. It has also been aligned. I received the documents from our rep this week. They are also providing pacing guides and supporting recources for each standard. We have been out of school every day this week due to snow so I have lots of time to go over the documents.

EnVisions also has the "bar models" like Singapore math. I'm not a Pearson rep, however, it might sound like it. I'm in my 32nd year and always found them to have good product and wonderful customer service. I believe the new copyright has been aligned to CCSS. Check out the link.

Envisions

My district is in the adoption process too. In a meeting with the Envisions rep. last week, we were given materials to show how the books we would get at the beginning of the year will align with the common core curriculum. The rep. thought that they were the only book that was already aligned with the common core curriculum.

We also have Everyday Math in three of our K-5 schools, and they are partially aligned. I'm not sure if the new books will be aligned, but they have posted some alignment documents. You can go to their website and request a password to view the material online. They will send it immediately.

This has been very helpful. My district is also looking at a new math book series too. We are looking at both Envision and Everyday Math.

We have looked at EM and the common core. We think it will align pretty good. But we will have to make some changes. I have a doc. with every common core and the lesson in EM that it relates to for K-2. Working on the other grades.
Let me know what you think about the alignment.

We have Everyday Math. This is our district's 2nd year doing it. We are discussing how it will correlate to the Common Core Standards which in our state will be adopted in 2 years. It looks like it will correlate pretty well. I love the program btw. The spiraling is great and really helps students understand numbers through activities, games, and repetition.

Most publishers are scrambling to provide districts with alignments for CCSS. We did not adopt last year, waiting to see new textbooks. Publishers here, however, are only posting online revisions to what they offered. It's too expensive for them to completely redo textbooks at this point in the adoption cycle.

not an answer, but just wanted to point out that EnVision incorporates the bar models from Singapore math throughout their problemsolving in their program

CCSS Alignment with Curriculum
Old 03-02-2011, 07:00 AM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #17

Please be very careful when a rep says that their product is aligned with the standards including CCSS. Ask them who did the alignment and how they achieved this. Most will only do a google search for key words in the standard and wherever it apears they say it is aligned. This does not look at the students work, how the problems are asked, or how they are do be completed. I caution you when taking the company's word for the alignment. Some might be doing a great job. But just look to make sure.

Our district is also trying to decide on a a new series to adopt that will align to the common core standards. We are looking at several series...Everyday Math, Envison, Math Connects. Would you also be able to email me the document how Everyday Math lines up with the Common Core Standards? Email is lindseynfry@yahoo.com

This message reply changes the "at" sign to the "number" sign in e-mail addresses. I have re-tried several times to re-send my e-mail address with the "at" sign instead of the "number" sign. It won't let me. You will have to enter the "at" sign in place of the "number" sign in any e-mail you wish to reply to.

Thanks in advance,
