In Grade 6, instructional time should focus on four critical areas: (1) connecting ratio and rate to whole number multiplication and division and using concepts of ratio and rate to solve problems; (2) completing understanding of division of fractions and extending the notion of number to the system of rational numbers, which includes negative numbers; (3) writing, interpreting, and using expressions and equations; and (4) developing understanding of statistical thinking.
In Grade 7, instructional time should focus on four critical areas: (1) developing understanding of and applying proportional relationships; (2) developing understanding of operations with rational numbers and working with expressions and linear equations; (3) solving problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions, and working with two- and three-dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume; and (4) drawing inferences about populations based on samples.
In Grade 8, instructional time should focus on three critical areas: (1) formulating and reasoning about expressions and equations, including modeling an association in bivariate data with a linear equation, and solving linear equations and systems of linear equations; (2) grasping the concept of a function and using functions to describe quantitative relationships; (3) analyzing two- and three-dimensional space and figures using distance, angle, similarity, and congruence, and understanding and applying the Pythagorean Theorem.
Welcome to the Los Angeles Unified School District’s Common Core Mathematics Curriculum Map. The mathematics curriculum map for Los Angeles Unified School District is developed as a tool for direction and clarification. It is a living document that is interactive and web-based. There are specific, precise links to provide readily accessible resources needed to appropriately meet the rigors of the common core state standards. The mathematics curriculum map is intended to be a one-stop tool for teachers, administrators, parents, and other school support personnel. It provides information on the Common Core Standards for Mathematics, assessment sample items, and suggested instructional tools organized into units providing one easy-to-read resource.
Components of the Mathematics Curriculum Map:
The curriculum map is designed around the standards for mathematics K – 12 which are divided into two sets: Practice Standards and Content standards. The Standards for Mathematical Practice are identical for each grade level. They are the expertise and understanding which the mathematics educators will seek to develop in their students.
The Mathematics Curriculum Map is grouped into units by grade level. Each unit clarifies the cluster and specific standards students are to master. In addition, the relevant Mathematical Practices and learning progressions are correlated. These sections of the mathematics curriculum map define the big idea of the unit.
