Flexible Diagnostic Assessment

• Early indicator of student knowledge and skills to • inform instruction, • supports, and PD

Mid-Year Assessment

• Performance-based • Emphasis on hard-to • measure standards • Potentially summative

Performance-Based Assessment (PBA)

• Extended tasks • Applications of concepts and skills

End-of-Year Assessment

Understanding the Transition to Common Core

Teams of Howard County Math Teachers, ITLs, and MISTs developed the transition plan:  Examined cohorts of students  Examined what pre-requisite skills would be necessary to be successful for each Common Core course  Examined what skills students have currently obtained  Determined how best to fill in gaps to meet needs  Organized information into the transition plan

What is the difference between Grade 6 MSM I and II in 2012-2013?

 For grade 6 students in 2012-2013, there are not many differences between MSM I and II. For the most part, all students will be following most of Common Core 6 curriculum.

 Grade 6 MSM II will have a few additional standards from Common Core 7.

 Grade 7 MSM II looks very different than Grade 6 MSM II.

2012-2013 Essentials

• Units organized by domain • Structure of Common Core • Purple bold notes regarding content for 2012-2013

Activity 1: Backsplash Task

Activity 1: Backsplash Task

The Marshall family is remodeling their kitchen. A creative way to incorporate color is by tiling the backsplash on the wall behind their stove. A standard backsplash is 18 inches by 2 feet. Their son Samuel is very artistic so they ask him to design a tile pattern for the backsplash.  The Marshalls only have a few guidelines they are asking Samuel to follow.  They want to use small square tiles that are 1 inch by 1 inch. The available colors are red, yellow, green, and blue.

   Less than 15% of the backsplash should be yellow.

For every 1 red tile they want 3 blue tiles.

140 square inches should be green.

Create a backsplash design for Samuel to present to his parents.

Activity 1 Debrief

 Share your design with other groups.

 What mathematical concepts & skills were necessary to complete the task?

 Look at the Ratios & Proportional Relationships unit — when might a task like this be introduced?

Sample Responses

Examining the Grade 6 Crosswalk

 What is a crosswalk document?

 How should it be used?

 What does the crosswalk mean for Grade 6?

Short Break

Mini-Lesson: Ratio Tables

 What is a ratio table?

 Why are ratio tables important?

 When should we use ratio tables?

Build a ratio table and use it to answer the question.

 A person who weighs 160 pounds on Earth will weigh 416 pounds on the planet Jupiter. How much will a person weigh on Jupiter who weighs 120 pounds on earth?  At the local college, five out of every eight seniors live in apartments. How many of the 30 senior math majors are likely to live in an apartment?  The tax on a purchase of $20 is $1.12. How much tax will there be on a purchase of $45.50?  When in Australia you can exchange $4.50 in U.S. dollars for $6 Australian. How much is $17.50 Australian in U.S. dollars?

Tasks are adapted from Lamon (1999, p. 183).

Activity 2: King of Cakes

King of Cakes is making a cake for Skye’s birthday party. On the way to deliver the cake, a piece breaks off. See diagram below.

The cake will still be used for the party even though it is missing a piece. King of Cakes will reduce the price based upon the portion that broke off. If the cake was originally priced at $58.25, how much should King of Cakes now charge Skye?

Activity 2: King of Cakes

Extension Questions:  If the original cake served 48 people, about how many people will it now serve?

 The original cake had 11,040 calories. Approximately how many calories does the broken off piece contain?

Activity 2 Debrief

 Share your solutions with other groups.

 What mathematical concepts & skills were necessary to complete the task?

 Look at the Numbers & Operations-Fractions unit — when might a task like this be introduced?
