Standards for Mathematical Practice
The Standards for Mathematical Practice describe varieties of expertise that mathematics educators at all levels should seek to develop in their students. These practices rest on important “processes and proficiencies” with longstanding importance in mathematics education. The first of these are the NCTM process standards of problem solving, reasoning and proof, communication, representation, and connections. The second are the strands of mathematical proficiency specified in the National Research Council’s report Adding It Up: adaptive reasoning, strategic competence, conceptual understanding (comprehension of mathematical concepts, operations and relations), procedural fluency (skill in carrying out procedures flexibly, accurately, efficiently and appropriately), and productive disposition (habitual inclination to see mathematics as sensible, useful, and worthwhile, coupled with a belief in diligence and one’s own efficacy).

Commentary of the Standards for Mathematical Practice

NC Math Revisions At-A-Glance
These documents are a quick glance at the substantive changes to the standards for each course. They include additional standards that were added/changed for the course, standards removed from the course(s), and any standards that should be considered in Year 1 of Implementation (2016-17) for each course. For each standard that was added from another course, the documents show from which course the standard originated; and for each standard removed, the documents give to what course (if applicable) the standard went. This to help districts and teachers align previously aligned curriculum to the revised standards.

Instructional Resources

Math Resources for Instruction (MRI)
The Math Resources for Instruction (MRIs) are intended to provide teachers with connections, instructional guidance and learning resources. The documents, which are organized by standard, have internal links embedded within the table of contents to help teachers to easily access the individual standards without scrolling through the entire document. Information for each standard is subdivided into 3 sections: 1) Connections; 2) Mastering the Standard; and 3) Instructional Resources. The top section (directly below the standard) includes content connections and connections to the standards for mathematical practice. These connections are intended are included to help teachers integrate the different content standards from within and among different courses through explicit use of the process standards. The mastering the standard section (Section 2 in green) spells out the intention of the standard along with background information to help teachers in the instructional process with students. This section also includes sample questions and examples that teachers can use to determine if students are developing mastery. The bottom section (Instructional resources in purple) includes links to external resources that can be used by teachers as they engage students with the standards.

We have created a survey to collect feedback on the revision docs and any resources that can be included for the standards.

2017-18 NC High School Collaborative Instructional Framework

The NC High School Collaborative Instructional Framework was created in a collaborative process involving higher education, the Department of Public Instruction, district leadership, and teachers. The framework includes instructional support and suggested pacing and sequencing of units. More instructional support has been provided by merging and adapting the Math Resource for Instruction (MRI) to the Collaborative Pacing Guides Units for Instruction. Based on feedback, the order of the units have changed in each course.

2016-17 Collaborative Pacing Guides - Submitted and shared by local LEAs. All copyrights belong to individual districts.
These pacing guides are the collaborative work of math teachers, coaches, and curriculum leaders from 38 NC public school districts. The teams worked through two face-to-face meetings and digitally to compile the information presented. NC Math 1, 2, and 3 standards were used to draft possible units of study for these courses. This is a first draft living document. Teams plan to meet throughout the year to continually tweak, update and refine these guides. Updates will be posted as available to this google document.

Please reference the NC Math 1, 2, or 3 standards above for any questions or discrepancies. These documents should be used only after reading the NC Math 1, 2, and 3 standards and math resources for instruction (MRIs) provided by NC DPI.

If you have suggestions or comments that you would like the collaborative writing team to consider for revisions, please email sdupree@wcpss.net or stefanie.buckner@bcsemail.org.

Mathematics Progressions Documents
The standards in mathematics were built on progressions: narrative documents describing the progression of a topic across a number of grade levels, informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics. This work is being undertaken by members of the original work team of the progressions and also by mathematicians and educators not involved in the initial writing.

EDC – Implementing the Practices
Implementing the Mathematical Practice Standards is an EDC project funded by the National Science Foundation to develop Illustrations of the Mathematical Practices and a professional development curriculum for teachers in grades 5–10. Each Illustration of the Standards for Mathematical Practice (SMP) consists of a mathematics task; a student dialogue based on that task; information about grade level, standards, and the context for the dialogue; teacher reflection questions; a mathematical overview; and optional student materials. While the primary use of Illustrations is for teacher learning about the SMP, some components are designed for classroom use with students.

Balanced Assessment
This site is the result of a National Science Foundation funded mathematics assessment task development project called Balanced Assessment for the Mathematics Curriculum. In addition to the project team at the Harvard Graduate School of Education there were groups at the University of California, Michigan State University, and the University of Nottingham. At Harvard, they designed balanced collections of assessment tasks for both elementary and secondary mathematics.
