A Teacher's Guide to Using the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics provides teachers and administrators with practical examples of ways to build a comprehensive, coherent, and continuous set of learning experiences for gifted and advanced students. It describes informal, traditional, off-level, and 21st century math assessments that are useful in making educational decisions about placement and programming. Featuring learning experiences for each grade within one math progression, the book offers insight into useful ways of both accelerating and enriching the CCSS mathematics standards. Each of the learning experiences includes a sequence of activities, implementation examples, and formative assessments. Specific instructional and management strategies for implementing the standards within the classroom, school, and school district will be helpful for both K–12 teachers and administrators.

Review by: Amber Steele, Georgia State University - April 27, 2016
This book begins with a thorough overview of the Common Core Standards and explains in detail how to use them for gifted and advanced learners. Throughout, the authors provide a realistic approach to assessing students using differentiated learning through management strategies. The book is jam-packed with rubrics and sample activities that link the Common Core Standards with actual teaching practices. These types of activities are beneficial for learners of all levels. I plan to use several suggested activities presented throughout this book within my own lower-level classroom.
