The citywide instructional expectations ask educators in grades K-8 to begin to think about how to reorganize math content to teach fewer topics allowing for more time to focus on the major work of the grade. We are offering flexible sets of supports so you can choose which makes sense based on your school’s current curriculum and context. Each option has strengths and challenges. Review the overview carefully to better understand which one could best serve your school and your students.
New York State has released guidance on which Common Core math standards are expected to be taught pre- and post test administration. Using the guidance, along with the resources on the Common Core Library, teachers should plan to spend more instructional time through April on the major cluster standards listed as “Sept-April” and less time on the standards listed as “May-June”, which are more closely related to the standards for the following grade and could be assessed on the assessment for the following grade. Consistent with the State's mathematics testing guidance and the recently released K-5 scope and sequence guidance, adjustments have been made to the Scope and Sequence Samples and Mathematics Overviews for Impact Math and were posted on September 17th.
