Understanding the NYSED Mathematics Parent Report
Each year, students in grades 3–8 take the Mathematics Common Core Test. After the test, families receive a report that explains how their child performed. This document explains the parts of that score report.
Common Core Curriculum Mathematic Content Modules
This link provides access to grade level curriculum maps and all available mathematics modules. The curriculum modules in mathematics are marked by in-depth focus on fewer topics. They integrate the Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS), rigorous classroom reasoning, extended classroom time devoted to practice and reflection through extensive problem sets, and high expectations for mastery. The time required to complete a curriculum module will depend on the scope and difficulty of the mathematical content that is the focus of the module (first priority cluster area for a given grade level). For example, the curriculum module relating to Grade 3 multiplication and division introduces initial ideas of multiplication and division in a brief period at the start of the year, continues to develop strategies and problem solving throughout the year, and includes materials to be used throughout the year for helping students reach fluency by the end of the year with single-digit multiplication and related division.
Grade 2-- Mathematics: Module 1
Module 1 sets the foundation for students to master the sums and differences to 20 and to subsequently apply these skills to fluently add one-digit to two-digit numbers at least through 100 using place value understandings, properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction.
Grade 2-- Mathematics: Module 2
In this 12-day Grade 2 module, students engage in activities designed to deepen their conceptual understanding of measurement and to relate addition and subtraction to length. Their work in Module 2 is exclusively with metric units in order to support place value concepts. Customary units will be introduced in Module 7.
Grade 2-- Mathematics: Module 3
This module covers Place Value, Counting, and Comparison of Numbers to 1000.
Grade 2-- Mathematics: Module 4
In Module 4, students develop place value strategies to fluently add and subtract within 100; they represent and solve one- and two-step word problems of varying types within 100; and they develop conceptual understanding of addition and subtraction of multi-digit numbers within 200. Using a concrete to pictorial to abstract approach, students use manipulatives and math drawings to develop an understanding of the composition and decomposition of units, and they relate these representations to the standard algorithm for addition and subtraction.
