Missouri Learning Standards - Mathematics
Over the past year, a number of mathematics curriculum and assessment activities have been occurring in preparation for the implementation of the Missouri Learning Standards and related curriculum and assessment including:
Alignment of existing grade-level and EOC item banks to the Missouri Learning Standards. The information provided by this work will aid in maximizing the assessment of items that align to the Missouri Learning Standards on the 2013 – 2014 assessments. In addition, it will provide Missouri educators with results of student performance on items that specifically align with these standards.
The development of Mathematics K – 2 Vocabulary Cards and Mathematics K – 12 Glossaries that will be made available in the near future.
Training of certified trainers to provide mathematics professional development addressing the three major shifts outlined in the Mathematics Missouri Learning Standards.
Given these developments and changes, there are curricular changes that need to occur within the next two years related to the new Missouri Learning Standards. Currently, all districts should be implementing the eight Standards for Mathematical Practice in all grades K – 12. In addition:
During this 2012 – 2013 school year, districts should align K – 2 mathematics curriculum, instruction, and assessment to the Mathematics Missouri Learning Standards.
Beginning with the 2013 – 2014 school year, districts should align all K – 12 mathematics curriculum, instruction, and assessments to the Mathematics Missouri Learning Standards.

This three-session webinar series provides information about the three major shifts that are outlined in the Mathematics Missouri Learning Standards. Each session includes a discussion of one of the shifts along with pertinent information and resources.
Session 1 Shift One: Focus
This session includes a discussion of the focus shift. The Mathematics Missouri Learning Standards are intended to focus on fewer topics and address them in greater depth.
Session 2 Shift Two: Coherence
This session includes a discussion of the coherence shift. The Mathematics Missouri Learning Standards were developed based upon mathematical progressions which connect within and across grades.
Session 3 Shift Three: Rigor
This session includes a discussion of the three components of the rigor shift. The Mathematics Missouri Learning Standards call for the development of conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, and the application of knowledge to solve problems.
These documents provide a comprehensive listing of all CCSS for mathematics and their alignment to the GLEs/CLEs. Crosswalks have been compiled for grades K – 8 as well as high school. These documents will be useful in identifying content to be addressed in each grade or course in updating curriculum and preparing students for assessments aligned to the CCSS.
Updated comprehensive draft versions of the original K – 8 and high school CCSS and GLEs/CLEs Crosswalks were recently developed to:
- Provide more specificity and clarity in the content alignments and shifts between the GLEs/CLEs and the Mathematics Missouri Learning Standards.
- Identify any new content that does not align to GLEs/CLEs for any grade or course which should be included in the instruction and assessment for a grade/course upon transition to the Mathematics Missouri Learning Standards.
The revised Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II documents align with the mathematics pathways described in Appendix A: Designing High School Mathematics Courses Based on the Common Core State Standards for the traditional high school pathway. This pathway organization of the Missouri Learning Standards will provide the framework for the Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II End-of-Course Exams aligned to the Mathematics Missouri Learning Standards.
In addition, links to illustrated examples of many of the standards that have been developed by the Illustrative Mathematics Project have been provided. These updated Crosswalk documents will be useful in identifying content to be addressed in each grade or course in revising and/or developing curriculum, planning instruction, and preparing students for assessments aligned to the Mathematics Missouri Learning Standards.

This presentation and accompanying video provide background information about the CCSS initiative, the implications for assessment and a broad overview of the ELA and mathematics CCSS.
Regional Meeting Information
The mathematics presentations and accompanying videos provide a look at the CCSS documents to develop and understanding of the contents, format and structure. Additionally, each video provides the process that was used in comparing the CCSS with current GLEs/CLEs in creating a crosswalk document that shows the similarities between the two documents. Finally, they include a discussion of the various ancillary documents, including the grade-band commonalities document that was provided to workshop participants.

Hunt Institute/CCSSO Videos
To further aid states as they continue to implement the Common Core State Standards (Standards), the Hunt Institute and the Council of Chief State School Officers have commissioned a series of video vignettes that explain the Standards in far greater depth.
