Unpacking the Common Core Standards

That phrase has been mentioned and talked about in recentmonths but what exactly does it mean?  Itmeans that you look at each standard and think about the sub objectives foreach standard. What do the students need to be able to do to master thisstandard and what does it look like when they do.  Since the standards are being implementedacross the country we can benefit from the work that has already been done inthis area.  Although the bestunderstanding comes from doing, these resources will help us get started.

KANSAS mATH Flipbooks

The Common Core “FlipBooks” are a compilation of research, “unpacked” standards from many states, instructional strategies and examples for each standard at each grade level. The intent is to show the connections to the Standards of Mathematical Practices for the content standards and to get detailed information at each level.
