TUSD Common Core Math Pathway Information
TUSD’s Secondary Math Committee, comprised of 7-12 math teachers of all courses/levels, 6th grade GATE teachers, and site and district administrators, has spent the past year discussing the Common Core Math Standards, the Standards for Mathematical Practice as well as reviewing resources from David Foster, executive director of the Silicon Valley Mathematics Initiative (SVMI), Jo Boaler, Professor Stanford Graduate School of Education, and the Math Assessment Resource Service (MARS). The extensive work of Carol Ann Tomlinson in the area of differentiated instruction, combined with information gathered from the National Association of Gifted Learners, has supported us in developing courses and establishing classroom practices that meet the needs of a diverse group of learners. Additionally, conversations have been influenced by the guidance and feedback from Stanislaus County Office of Education's Director of Math, Erin Cross and the High School Math Network and the following at Solution Tree:

The work of committee members is reflected in the attached PowerPoint that highlights and summarizes TUSD’s vision for math instruction that is supported by a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS), researched-based math pedagogy, and data-driven, shared decision making.
