Common Core Math Connections and the Math: Getting It Projects |

What are the Common Core Math Connections and the Math: Getting It Projects?The The University Place School District
(University Place, Wa.), in partnership with Seattle Pacific University
(Seattle, Wa.) and Fife School District (Tacoma, Wa.), will manage the grant,
which funds three years of intensive summer institutes and follow-up training
for 120 teachers, as well as the development and implementation of classroom resources
and materials. The project will extend ongoing work both districts initiated in
2009 as part of a prior MSP grant, Th The Math: Getting It Project (2009-2012) was a partnership of three Pierce County school districts (University Place School District, Peninsula School District, and Fife School District) two universities (University of Washington/Tacoma and Seattle University ) and the Pierce County Staff Development Consortium, who had a common goal of improving mathematics education for all students.Why do students stop getting it?Both The Common Core Math Connections Project and the Math: Getting It Project addressed a troubling problem in mathematics education: Students frequently do not ‘get it’ when they progress beyond 4^{th} grade into fraction concepts, and later when they reach pre-algebra and higher mathematics courses. Why? Compelling research points to the persistent absence of instructional strategies designed to deeply embed core mathematical structures in student thinking, primarily when students first learn fractions but also throughout K-12 math learning programs. These strategies, however, are crucial to the improvement of math achievement at every level.
The overarching goal of this project, which is to improve student achievement in mathematics, will be met when we address the Getting It problem by:·
· improving teacher and principal understanding of how students learn mathematics· improving teachers’ understanding of how students think about mathematics· increasing productive principal-teacher and teacher-teacher dialogue about mathematical content and effective instructional strategies | Common Core Math Connections and Math: Getting It Project PartnersUniversity Place School District Seattle Pacific University What's New: Upcoming EventsK-2 Followup TrainingApril 2, 2015 3-5 Followup TrainingApril 23, 2015 In the News Contacts:Jeff Loupas and Annette Holmstrom Common Core Math Connections and the Math: Getting It Project Co-Directors |
