On January 11, 2011, the Board of Regents approved the New York State Common Core Learning Standards for Mathematics. Implementation of the New York State Common Core Learning Standards will begin in the 2011-2012 school year. Although New York State Assessments will continue to be aligned with 2005 Standards, State assessment results will be mapped to both existing NYS standards and the new NYS Common Core Standards.SED has outlined six instructional shifts needed to effectively implement the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in Math: focus, coherence, fluency, deep understanding, application and duel intensity. Each grade level has particular areas of focus. The seventh grade focus area are: (1) proportional relationships, (2) operations with rational numbers, expressions and linear expressions, (3) scale drawings and two and three dimensional geometric shapes, and (4) drawing inferences based on population samples. In order to begin this process of implementation, this revised 7th grade curriculum map has been sequenced in the form of a calendar for the year 2011-2012. Whenever possible and appropriate, Common Core Standards have been added and aligned to current standards. Additional resources have been sited and included in the calendar for teachers. Using these resources will provide teachers with the opportunity to develop lessons that focus on proportional reasoning and operations with rational numbers. The resources selected also provide problems of a more rigorous nature, giving students an opportunity for higher level thinking and problem solving.
