The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for Mathematics are curriculum standards that describe the mathematics skills and concepts students need to develop for success in higher education and the 21st-century workplace. This book, the most recent curriculum unit from the Center for Gifted Education, provides gifted and advanced learners challenging activities related to the CCSS for Mathematics. The 21 lessons cover mathematics content for grade 3, including operations and algebraic thinking, numbers and operations in Base Ten, fractions, measurement and data, and geometry. Each lesson follows a predictable structure and includes a teacher page that outlines the CCSS and mathematical practices covered, estimated time, key terms, materials, and objectives; a challenging activity to allow students to explore the concepts in depth; practice problems; and an assessment similar to CCSS-based grade-level standardized assessments.

Review by: Martha May, National Council of Teachers of Mathematics - August 1, 2016
Although the activities in the book can be productively used with any size grouping, they are most useful to teachers who want to provide engaging challenges for students who are quick learners in mathematics. The activities give such students the opportunity to work productively in valuable, mostly independent, higher-level learning.
Review: Midwest Book Review - September 1, 2015
Each lesson offers an activity-based approach to reinforcing math learning for this grade level, pairing practice problems and discussions with assessment keys that teachers will find specific and handy. The result is a handbook highly recommended for any Common Core educator working with this age group.
