We were failing our students by expecting them to follow procedures they didn't understand. THAT is abstract! Allowing students to make sense of numbers, operations, and properties, as required in Common Core Standards, brings the math to a cognitive level students can work with. It's LESS abstract to make sense of a problem and solve it than to follow a teacher's prescribed steps. It is not a waste of time to teach math properly; it is a time investment. I have been researching all afternoon and keep finding articles about the positive effects of Common Core in math. Unfortunately, those weren't the articles I was looking for. I wish I could attach them all here for you. But a quick Google search is all you need. Plenty of peer reviewed articles to choose from.Unknownhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/12488421813844175366noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6172532982347376290.post-50803874476264204852013-09-23T22:14:53.153-04:002013-09-23T22:14:53.153-04:00YES!!!!

As the author says, kindergarteners are in a phase of abstract thinking. The Common Core approach reflects thinking that will reach students more often in early adolescence. But that would never occur to the developers, as they know nothing of child psychology and never taught in school classrooms. <br />See <a href="http://nyceye.blogspot.com/2013/08/the-common-core-and-gates-education.html" rel="nofollow"> on how there were no teachers among the writers of the Common Core math, and how Common Core architect David Coleman apparently was able to hand-pick Jason Zimba,</a> who so happened to be in the same Oxford class as he, to lead the Common Core math section. Actual school teachers were only allowed in at the validation stage. --<a href="nyceye.blogspot.com" rel="nofollow">New York City Eye</a>.Geo Karohttps://www.blogger.com/profile/11463970361326939857noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6172532982347376290.post-59455104001927809212013-03-15T14:30:50.179-04:002013-03-15T14:30:50.179-04:00I actually think these are great standards, and yo...I actually think these are great standards, and you've suggested a few interesting ways to teach it.<br /><br />The standards aren't the problem, the problem is schools being too focused on 'covering' the standards instead of learning, and not allowing teachers to break out into the creativity that will allow them to do that.<br />Summers Schoolhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/12798816042783988336noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6172532982347376290.post-45300618033163472642013-01-28T17:49:44.041-05:002013-01-28T17:49:44.041-05:00Read a related article in the Jan 27, 2013, New Yo...Read a related article in the Jan 27, 2013, New York Post<br /><br />http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/playtime_over_kindergartners_ItkfEkiosY3UOa8KpXwj8KCCSSI Mathematicshttps://www.blogger.com/profile/12318317536740240935noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6172532982347376290.post-53970768514587233792012-11-08T18:10:17.067-05:002012-11-08T18:10:17.067-05:00Read our followup to this blog post at http://ccss...Read our followup to this blog post at http://ccssimath.blogspot.com/2012/10/dodgy-beginnings.htmlCCSSI Mathematicshttps://www.blogger.com/profile/12318317536740240935noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6172532982347376290.post-85421849515736653952012-10-12T10:46:28.941-04:002012-10-12T10:46:28.941-04:00I was trying to find out what decomposing numbers ...I was trying to find out what decomposing numbers into pair,means for my kindergartner.
