8:30- Updates from State Ed
6-8 Testing Guides - Please note the updated calculator policies. We asked why protractors are listed for use grades that do not have standards specifically focused on protractor use. We were told that this was done so that students will have to choose the appropriate tool. We were also told that they designed the reference sheets to be similar to the reference sheets that will accompany the PARCC assessments. Please review these documents before the forum so we will be able to discuss your thoughts.

6-8 Curriculum Modules Map- This may give some insight into to the content as you examine it, but realize that this will likely be revised as the modules are developed.
Illustrative Mathematics- Tasks listed in order. You may want to jump to the end of the list to find the upper level tasks.
Progressions Documents- Explain the connections between the standards.
Dr. Hung-Hsi Wu's website- Dr. Wu's work provides interesting insight into the math behind the standards. We have heard that he will be involved with the module development/review process for the upper levels.
PARCC Content Frameworks- Updated November 2012- Look for the document that explains the revisions on this page. Also note that the larger document has been broken down into grades/courses. This makes it easier to zoom in and focus on what you teach.
