BRES Common Core Math Alignment Resources

Introduction to Common Core

Mathematical Focus by Grade Level k-8

A collection of PDF’s detailing the mathematical content emphasized in the Standards by grade level. These can be used as guides to inform instructional decisions regarding time and other resources.

They can also be used in reviewing mathematics units in ATLAS over the course of  a year and over grade spans.  As we build out more units in our mathematics curriculum, we can begin to look for gaps and redundancies in our mathematics curriculum.  The standards are keyed by cluster in the following manner;

  1. Major Cluster- It is recommended that from 65-85% of class time be spent on the standards in these clusters.
  2. Supporting Clusters– It is recommended that from 15%-30% of class time be spent on the standards in these clusters.
  3. Additional Clusters– These should be addressed as time allows.

Unpacked Standards and Learning Targets (“I statements”)

This set of learning targets for K-8 ELA Common Core standards and for k-12 Mathematics Common Core standards are not perfect but do help to unpack each of these sets of standards into more kid friendly language that could be used in your instruction.

They come from Dr. Bob Darnell.  His website is located here.
