Everyday Mathematics Common Core State Standards Edition Technology, Part 1
Three senior members of the McGraw-Hill editorial staff will introduce some of the on-line and electronic components of the Everyday Mathematics Common Core State Standards (EM CCSS) edition. The presentation will include both demonstrations and discussion focused on three areas of the edition’s technology: the new features and functionality of the iTLG (interactive Teacher’s Lesson Guide); the ExamView CD software for EMCCSS; and the online Crosswalk for Everyday Mathematics c2007 users.
Everyday Mathematics Common Core State Standards Edition Technology, Part 2 will be presented on Friday, August 26. It will focus on three additional areas of the EM CCSS edition: the new c2012 eSuite teacher portal; the ePresentations and the eToolkit; and the c2012 eSuite student portal and parent support.
The presenters from McGraw-Hill Education are Luke Zajac, executive editor; Linda Benesch, senior editor; and Joan Green, editorial director.
Common Core State Standards in Mathematics – What will it look like in the classroom, and how will students be assessed?
How will the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) affect the teaching and learning of mathematics? How might the CCSS influence summative and formative assessments? How are the standards being addressed and embraced, and what innovations are occurring in other states? How will curriculum change? What are some examples of curriculum and assessments for the CCSS? How will teaching and learning change? This session will address these questions and share work and products from several states that are embracing the new core standards.
