Modeling Mathematics 6-8


The Creative Core Curriculum in Mathematics with STEM, Literacy and Arts was developed to provide a curriculum that would promote experientially based, hands-on learning for students.
It gives teachers an alternative to traditional teaching approaches that primarily rely on teacher-directed strategies in which students are passive learners and that typically assess students learning by how well they can recall specific facts or robotically demonstrate specific skills. The Creative Core Curriculum engages students in their learning and assesses attainment by evaluating how well they can apply the concepts and skills they develop to new situations. Content is arranged either in by grade, by domain, COMBINED books containing STEM, Traditional, Arts, Amelia Rose, and assessments, or can be purchased by individual books as successfully presented for State adoption in California. To ease your review the books in the store are provided in both formats. This area is showing individual STEM, Traditional and Arts books, K-8, and K-5 student books are available in Spanish text.
The Creative Core Curriculum consists of a series of activities that address Common Core Content in Mathematics. Each activity within the STEM Project Guide for each grade is carefully designed to allow students the opportunity to experience how the Common Core is utilized to solve science, technology, and engineering (STEM) challenges. Although this text is primarily focused on mathematics content, it is often delivered in a science, engineering, or technological (STEM) context. This curriculum places a strong emphasis on problem solving, uses the learning cycle approach to assure that students are actively engaged in the learning process and makes frequent use of student group work. Traditional lesson plans, including focus on teaching literacy with numeracy, arts projects, reader book activities and assessments are all within the printed texts. Online assessment, reteach and advanced library content provide additional projects to use within school, or for after school or summer programs. The 'Creative Core Curriculum for Mathematics STEAM' program is built with the intent to enhance the Mathematics learning and teaching in schools. By aligning to the requirements of the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium and PARCC we enable teachers and parents to assist students in the application of Mathematic content, and the preparation for and passing of tests.
The program has been built through a collaborative effort of partner companies, each of which have expertise in Mathematics instructional design. All companies share a commitment to inquiry and activity-based instruction. The diversity of the writers and their perspectives ensures that the material is inclusive. Please ensure you review the description for each component as you review this program.

TPS have worked with Ellison Inc. to create, from scratch, a series of G6-8 State standards aligned lesson plans for teachers to review with or reteach students. These are proven to assist students with learning disabilities as the outputs are personalized and impressive. Visual and tactile learning tool. They are also excellent for all students as arts projects to reinforce mathematics and if any student is having problems with square roots, use the project in grade 6 and watch any misconceptions become resolved.
A matching video for the teacher will hugely assist teachers who may be concerned with art. The die cutting machine does all the intricate work, and these communications based lesson plans with videos will greatly aid all struggling students. Often making models will unravel misconceptions for students.
The low text results in all English Language Learners being able to master the mathematics content through art projects. Ellison Inc. also include ELPS links in each lesson plan to ensure continued vocabulary learning.
