## Information on Common Core Math Sequence for Middle School

The recommended pathway according to the Common Core standards is: CC6, CC7, CC8. Students will take the Smarter Balanced Assessment near the end of each year and will be assessed on the standards in their grade level regardless of which math course they are taking. So, an 8^{th} grade student taking CC8B/CC Algebra will only be assessed on CC8 standards, not on CC Algebra.

**The new sequence of math courses for CUSD includes:**

6^{th} grade: CC6 or CC6 Advanced

7^{th} grade: CC7 or CC7/CC8A (accelerated)

8^{th} grade: CC8 or CC8B/CC Algebra (accelerated)

__CC6 versus CC6 Advanced__

- Both CC6 and CC6 Advanced will cover CC6 standards. Neither will go into CC7 standards. The difference will be that CC6 Advanced will be more rigorous than CC6. It will include more performance-based tasks and more real-world problem solving applications. Procedural fluency skills must already be in place.

__Grade Level Pathway versus Accelerated Pathways in Grades 7 & 8__

- The grade level Common Core pathway leads directly to preparedness for college and career through differentiation and greater depth of knowledge. It covers CC6, CC7, and CC8 in middle school which is directly tied to the standards on which they will be assessed each year.
- The accelerated pathway goes in depth in more standards in less time. Students will complete the content of CC7, CC8, and High School CC Algebra 1 in grades 7 and grade 8 (3 years of math in 2 years). Therefore, the courses will move more quickly with a higher level of rigor required in the common core standards and students will be expected to keep up with the demands of an accelerated mathematics course.
