Question 6 - Classroom Video Introduction and Integrated Mathematics I Video

CA CCSS Higher Mathematics Emerging Practices Videos

The following classroom videos feature emerging practices for instruction aligned to the California Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CA CCSSM) higher mathematics courses. We have provided a few things to look for while you watch the video in order to draw your attention to some of these emerging practices in action. These videos are not meant to set a standard for evaluation of instructional practice, but, instead, provide a visual companion to state-level guidance and demonstrate what instruction aligned to the CA CCSSM might look like. 1

A Note-taking Guide (DOC) is provided to help you consider the practices shared in the videos. You may want to review it before watching the videos and print it or have it open on your desktop to have in front of you while you watch.

Integrated Mathematics I—Statistics

Things to Look For

  1. Notice how the teacher begins the lesson by having students discuss with each other concepts they have learned and reviewing homework to address misunderstandings.
  2. Notice how the teacher circulates during the group activity to ask probing and clarifying questions.
  3. Notice how the teacher meets with each group to provide differentiated support.
  4. Notice how the teacher ensures students are making sense of the problem and persevere in solving it. (MP.1)
  5. Notice how the lesson activity engages students in solving a real-world problem with mathematical modeling. (MP.4)

1 While every effort has been made to include classrooms that represent the diversity of California’s student population, every video may not reflect this diversity. We very much appreciate the teachers, students, and schools that volunteered to participate in this project, and we hope users of this resource can appreciate and draw from their efforts.
