Welcome to the Common Core Math course from Green Light Professional Development!

In this course, we’ll focus on the shifts that separate the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) from previous standards. Then we’ll take an in-depth look at how one test—PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers)—assesses math skills. We’ll also look at some strategies and activities you can integrate into your teaching to promote Common Core math skills. We’ll finish up the the course with a hands-on workshop that allows you time to review a current math unit or lesson around a topic or issue that focuses on conceptual understanding, fluency, and real-world application skills.

Let’s look at how PARCC tests assess math skills.

Expected Time to Complete Lessons:

- Lesson 1: 45 minutes
