Middle School Curriculum Modules "The Story of Ratios" 6-8
New York State has contracted with Common Core Inc. to develop mathematics curriculum aligned to the Common Core. Module 1 has been released for grade 6-8. You can find the materials grade 6-8 posted on EngageNY. You can also find tasks aligned to the middle school standards at Illustrative Mathematics under "Illustrations"
One document that will help you get acquainted with the curriculum modules is "A Story of Ratios: A Curriculum Overview for Grades 6-8" This document outlines the modules that will be developed for each grade level and shows the standards that aligned to each module. Be aware that this document will likely be revised as the modules are created.
The document that explains the philosophy and the structure of the elementary modules is called How to Implement "A Story of Units" This resource is useful because it explains how units and the way we model math, can help students make connections between what they have learned in the past and what they are currently learning. This is worth reading because it gives you insight into the foundation that is created for the middle school work through the elementary standards.
The progressions documents for the middle school domains can be found on the University of Arizona's IME website. These documents explain how the mathematical concepts builds across the grade level standards. This information is essential to understanding the intent of the standards.
