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 from the Center for Gifted Education provides gifted and advanced learners challenging activities to master and engage with the CCSS for mathematics. The lessons cover mathematics content for grade 5, including operations and algebraic thinking, number and operations in base ten, number and operations—fractions, measurement and data, and geometry. Activities and practice problems enrich and extend current grade-level mathematics content. 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: Jiwon Lee, University of California-Irvine, Teaching Children Mathematics - March 1, 2017
Many of these lessons focus on engaging advanced students in small groups or individually with the Common Core’s Standards for Mathematical Practices, such as pushing for student explanations and reasoning as well as having students critique one another’s work . . . I recommend this book to those who have strong mathematical knowledge for teaching. It is a great resource but requires some expertise in planning and implementing meaningful lessons . . .
