You have just learned about the background, structure and organization, and areas of emphasis in the CCSS for Mathematics. For additional support as you implement the CCSS, visit the CCSS Math Resources Web page on the CDE Web site at External Link.

Time to Extend

Watch a classroom example of a 5th grade mathematics lesson during which students use a real-life example to help them deepen their understanding of fractions. Notice how the teacher differentiates instruction and promotes engagement by presenting students with multiple representations of the problem, critiquing possible solutions, identifying important information, and allowing for individual "think time" prior to working on the problem.
