## Common Core Learning Standards

CCLS Category Sub-Category State Standard
4.OA.1 Operations And Algebraic Thinking Use The Four Operations With Whole Numbers To Solve Problems. Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 × 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations.
4.OA.2 Operations And Algebraic Thinking Use The Four Operations With Whole Numbers To Solve Problems. Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.1
4.OA.3 Operations And Algebraic Thinking Use The Four Operations With Whole Numbers To Solve Problems. Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
4.OA.4 Operations And Algebraic Thinking Gain Familiarity With Factors And Multiples. Find all factor pairs for a whole number in the range 1–100. Recognize that a whole number is a multiple of each of its factors. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1–100 is a multiple of a given one-digit number. Determine whether a given whole number in the range 1–100 is prime or composite.
4.OA.5 Operations And Algebraic Thinking Generate And Analyze Patterns. Generate a number or shape pattern that follows a given rule. Identify apparent features of the pattern that were not explicit in the rule itself. For example, given the rule “Add 3” and the starting number 1, generate terms in the resulting sequence and observe that the terms appear to alternate between odd and even numbers. Explain informally why the numbers will continue to alternate in this way.

Common Core Learning Standards in New York State

The New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) are internationally-benchmarked and evidence-based standards. These standards serve as a consistent set of expectations for what students should learn and be able to do, so that we can ensure that every student across New YorkState is on track for college and career readiness. The New York State Education Department (NYSED) will continue to develop educator resources to support the successful implementation of the CCLS in classrooms across New York State over the next several years.

New York State Educator Expectations

In the 2012-13 school year, all teachers in grades Pre-K-8 are implementing CCLS-aligned instruction; all teachers in grades 9-12 should be in the process of implementing CCLS-aligned units and building content capacity.

Background and Context

• When Were the CCLS Adopted?

In January 2011, the NYS Board of Regents adopted the NYS P-12 CCLS, which include the Common Core State Standards and a small amount of additional standards uniquely added by New YorkState. The New York State P-12 CCLS were implemented in New York State schools at the beginning of the 2012-2013 school year. In December 2016, new P-12 Science Learning Standards were adopted.

• Common Core State Standards Background

The Common Core State Standards were created through a collaborative effort on behalf of the National Governor’s Association Center for Best Practices and the Council of Chief State School Officers. The standards were developed by key stakeholders in the field, including teachers, school administrators, and content experts. The final standards were released in June 2010. They have been adopted by forty-five states across the United States, and three territories.

• Instructional Shifts Required by the Common Core

In the summer of 2011, NYSED, in conjunction with Student Achievement Partners, developed 12 instructional shifts from the Common Core that educators should adhere to so that curriculum materials and classroom instruction are aligned with the CCLS. There are six shifts in English Language Arts/Literacy and six shifts in Mathematics, as follows:

 Common Core Shifts in ELA/Literacy Shift 1 Pre-K-5, Balancing Informational & Literary Texts Shift 2 6-12, Knowledge in the Disciplines Shift 3 Staircase of Complexity Shift 4 Text-based Answers Shift 5 Writing from Sources Shift 6 Academic Vocabulary

 Common Core Shifts in Mathematics Shift 1 Focus Shift 2 Coherence Shift 3 Fluency Shift 4 Deep Understanding Shift 5 Application Shift 6 Dual Intensity
