In this professionally-made video, you will see an introduction to the new Common Core state standards including background on the design process, key features, and major differences. (14:05)

This lecture gives insight into what the Common Core represents and how math teaching in other countries differs from that in the USA. The format is easy to follow, but no sources are quoted for the ideas presented. (06:00)

In this video, Mr. Almeida talks about the first 4 our of 8 mathematical practices found in the Common Core Standards. (1) Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. (2) Reason abstractly and quantitatively. (3) Construct viable argumen...ts and critique the reasoning of others. (4) Model with mathematics. Examples are provided on the computer screen as the narrator explains the examples. (12:01)[more]

Educators are faced with the challenge of transitioning to the Common Core State Standards in order to deliver effective math instruction that allows all students to excel.
Respected math leader Francis (Skip) Fennell, Ph.D. provides insights into... the Common Core opportunity: how to anticipate the hurdles to successful adoption? How will adoption change expectations about the way math is taught? How will students benefit? And how can technology help affect this change? And math support teacher Kelly Krownapple shares the ways that DreamBox is helping one district successfully transition to the new standards. (59:00)[more]

Phil Daro, Mathematics Chair for the Common Core Initiative, explains the process they used when they set out to write the Common Core Standards. A few examples and facts are provided about low performing and high performing countries. (02:55)

In this video, Mr. Almeida explains the last 4 mathematical practices found in the Common Core Standards. (#5) Use appropriate tools strategically. (6) Attend to precision. (7) Look for and make use of structure. (8) Look for and express regularit...y in repeated reasoning. Examples for each are provided on the computer screen while the narrator explains each example.

Using evidence of what high performing countries are doing in math and college and career readiness was the basis for creating the common core standards in math. Focus is a guiding principle with the math standards. Focus means spending more time on ...fewer things at any given grade. This video does a good job on showing how the common core standards work together to build a basic, solid foundation and how each grade level builds on each other. This is a great resource for professional development and offers a springboard for teachers and administrators to discuss implementing the common core standards in schools. (8:11)[more]

This Common Core State Standards video shows the design of math progressions and how they play out in domains over grade spans. The team members wanted to build coherence so that different grade levels could see what is expected in other grades. This... is a great resource for professional development and provides a springboard for discussions among teachers and administrators. (2:01)[more]

General discussion of mathematics Standards and goals
• Description of domains and increased focus and coherence
• Discussion of domains' discrete life spans
• General description of the differences for high school mathematics, including real-worl...d applications and modeling
