Redesigned to help teachers examine, understand, and make specific links to the Common Core Mathematics Standards, this course opens with a brief introduction to the research-based Ten Principles. Participants consider patterns and relationships in mathematics, including those in the multiplication tables and focus on the Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice. They examine the differences between multiplicative and additive structures, including the new role numbers have as they begin to represent not only single objects but also composite units. Participants also review the variety of problem types into multiplicative structures. Representations to help students understand include diagrams, charts, and t-tables as well as arrays and area models, which receive strong emphasis in Common Core. Use of the distributive property and the beginnings of proportional reasoning are stressed as well as the various treatments that may be required for division remainders in contextualized problems. Stress is placed on the importance of matching language to situations.
