In the 12 short months since the ELA versions of The Common Core Companions, Grades K-2 and 3-5, burst on the scene, they’ve already assisted tens of thousands of teachers with the day-to-day “what you do.” Teachers’ one big criticism: what about mathematics? Luckily NCTM past-president Linda Gojak and mathematics coach Ruth Harbin Miles stepped up to the task. The result? That version of the mathematics standards you wish you had.

Page by page, The Common Core Mathematics Companions clearly lay out:

• The mathematics embedded in each standard for a deeper understanding of the content
• Examples of what effective teaching and learning look like in the classroom
• Connected standards within each domain so teachers can better appreciate how they relate
• Priorities within clusters so teachers know where to focus their time
• The three components of rigor: conceptual understanding, procedural skills, and applications
• Vocabulary and suggested materials for each grade-level band with explicit connections to the standards
• Common student misconceptions around key mathematical ideas with ways to address them

Don’t spend another minute poring over the mathematics standards. Gojak and Miles have already done the heavy-lifting for you. Focus instead on how to teach them, using The Common Core Mathematics Companion as your one-stop guide for teaching, planning, assessing, collaborating, and designing powerful mathematics curriculum.

Winner of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science and Mathematics Teaching, and director of John Carroll University’s Center for Mathematics and Science Education, Linda Gojak has spent 28 years teaching elementary and middle school mathematics and 15 years working with K–8 teachers. She has served as the president of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics (NCSM), and the Ohio Council of Teachers of Mathematics.

Resources

“I appreciate the comprehensiveness of [The Common Core Mathematics Companion: The Standards Decoded, Grades K–2]. It compiles the standards, progressions, math practices, and more into one resource. . . . This is a reference resource to have read¬ily available for planning units and lessons, increasing content knowledge, and understand¬ing math. It will be a valuable companion on the path to increasing teacher efficacy and student learning. After I shared this resource with my colleagues, all of them requested copies for a book study.”
Linda Gojak has spent 28 years teaching elementary and middle school mathematics and 15 years working with Ka8 teachers. She currently directs the Center for Mathematics and Science Education at John Carroll University. She has served as the president of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics (NCSM), and the Ohio Council of Teachers of Mathematics. She has written several publications on problem solving and working with struggling students. Among her awards is the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science and Mathematics Teaching. Ruth Harbin Miles coaches rural, suburban, and inner-city school mathematics teachers.Her professional experiences include coordinating the K-12 Mathematics Teaching and Learning Program for the Olathe, Kansas, Public Schools for more than 25 years; teaching mathematics methods courses at Virginiaas Mary Baldwin College; and serving on the Board of Directors for the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the National Council of Supervisors of Mathematic, and both the Virginia Council of Teachers of Mathematics and the Kansas Association of Teachers of Mathematics.Ruth is a co-author of five Corwin books including A Guide to Mathematics Coaching, A Guide to Mathematics Leadership, Visible Thinking in the K-8 Mathematics Classroom, The Common Core Mathematics Standards, and Realizing Rigor in the Mathematics Classroom.As co-owner of Happy Mountain Learning, Ruth specializes in developing teachersa content knowledge and strategies for engaging students to achieve high standards in mathematics.
