Shifts in Math CCSS

• 1.

The first shift in Mathematics CCSS that needs to be addressed is focus?

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The first shift in Mathematics CCSS that needs to be addressed is focus. This means that the curriculum should focus on a more coherent and focused set of mathematical concepts and skills, rather than covering a broad range of topics superficially. By narrowing the focus, students can develop a deeper understanding of the key mathematical ideas and build a solid foundation for future learning. This shift helps to ensure that students are not overwhelmed with too much content and can instead engage in meaningful and in-depth mathematical exploration.

Rate this question:

• 2.

Which standard was emphasized the most before the Mathematics CCSS?

• A.

Numbers and Operations

• B.

Measurement and Geometry

• C.

Algebra and Functions

• D.

Statistics and Probability

• E.

E. All had the same focus
Explanation
The question asks which standard was emphasized the most before the Mathematics CCSS. The correct answer is "All had the same focus." This means that before the CCSS, there was no specific standard that was emphasized more than the others. All areas of mathematics, including Numbers and Operations, Measurement and Geometry, Algebra and Functions, and Statistics and Probability, had equal importance and focus.

Rate this question:

• 3.

The CCSS prioritize the focus areas for math, indicating what needs the most time, attention, and energy throughout the school year?

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The statement is true because the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) provide a framework for what students should know and be able to do in math at each grade level. By prioritizing focus areas, the CCSS help educators determine which concepts and skills are most important for students to master. This ensures that teachers can allocate sufficient time, attention, and energy to these key areas throughout the school year.

Rate this question:

• 4.

The second shift in math, coherence, provides the opportunity to pay attention to sense-making in math.  In other words, the standards themselves and any resulting curriculum and instruction, should build on major concepts within a given school year as well as major concepts from previous school years.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The explanation for the given correct answer is that the second shift in math, coherence, emphasizes the importance of sense-making in math. This means that the standards, curriculum, and instruction should be designed in a way that builds on major concepts within a school year and also connects to major concepts from previous school years. This approach ensures that students have a solid foundation of understanding and can make connections between different math concepts, leading to deeper learning and comprehension.

Rate this question:

• 5.

What option best describes the meaning of "Rigor" in the math CCSS?

• A.

Harder

• B.

Deeper

• C.

Shallower

B. Deeper
Explanation
In the math CCSS, "rigor" refers to the level of depth and complexity in mathematical thinking and problem-solving. It involves a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts, the ability to apply them in various contexts, and the capacity to justify and explain mathematical reasoning. Therefore, the option "deeper" best describes the meaning of "rigor" in the math CCSS.

Rate this question:

• 6.

The standards do not offer a choice between focus on conceptual understanding or fluency or application.  They instead require equal intensity of all three?

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The explanation for the correct answer is that the standards do not give the option to prioritize one aspect over the others. Instead, they emphasize the importance of having an equal focus on conceptual understanding, fluency, and application in order to promote a well-rounded and comprehensive education in the subject.

Rate this question:

• 7.

The best way to address the mathematical practices is to bureaucratize them such as "problem solving Mondays" or "Perseverance Tuesdays."

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
These practices should be integrated into the content instruction and practice.

Rate this question:

• 8.

The shifts in the math standards can be used to guide the many decisions to be made about the use of time, energy, resources, assessments, and conversations.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The statement suggests that the shifts in math standards can serve as a helpful guide for various decisions related to the allocation of time, energy, resources, assessments, and conversations. This implies that understanding and implementing the math standards can have a significant impact on these aspects, indicating that the statement is true.
