  12. Discussion on Edits to the draft Mathematics Framework (Information/Action)

    Co-Chair D’Souza re-opened the MSMC meeting after the lunch break. He asked staff and the framework writers to explain the edits that had been made to the draft chapters.

    Deborah Franklin, lead consultant for the revision of the mathematics framework, drew the MSMC’s attention to two documents: the list of Non-Content Edits and Corrections Proposed by CFIRD Staff and the Appendix: Higher Mathematics Pathways Standards Chart. The MSMC agreed to the changes proposed on the list and inclusion of the chart in the appendix.

    Framework writers Dr. Christopher Yakes, Mary Sprague, and CFIRD staff members Kristen Cruz Allen and Deborah Franklin presented the draft chapters in the order they appear in the draft framework and discussed the edits that had been made to the chapters. MSMC members suggested and reached consensus on additional edits to some of the chapters. Revised versions of the appendix documents on financial literacy and adaptations for students with learning difficulties in mathematics were approved by consensus. As each chapter was discussed, the MSMC members reached consensus on forwarding the chapters to the full Instructional Quality Commission (IQC) for action.

    During the discussion of the draft chapters, Co-Chair D’Souza suspended the MSMC meeting to allow the Ad Hoc Committee on the Implementation of the Common Core State Standards to meet and hear a presentation. After the presentation, the MSMC meeting was re-opened and discussion of the draft chapters continued.

  13. Subject Matter Committee Approval of the Draft Mathematics Framework (Action)

    Before calling for a motion, Co-Chair D’Souza noted that the MSMC had worked on the revision of the mathematics framework for over a year. He acknowledged the many individuals who had contributed to the revision of the framework, including focus group members, the framework committee, the MSMC members, other members of the IQC, the State Board liaisons, CFIRD staff, the writers, and the members of the public who provided comment throughout the framework development process, and thanked everyone who had a part in this challenging and exciting effort.

    ACTION
    Co-Chair Spykerman moved that the Mathematics Subject Matter Committee request CFIR Division staff to incorporate into the July IQC Review Draft of the mathematics framework the edits agreed upon today; ask the full Instructional Quality Commission to authorize Commissioners D’Souza and Spykerman to work with staff to review and approve the edits; recommend that the full Instructional Quality Commission approve the July IQC draft of the mathematics framework, with edits, and forward the edited mathematics framework to the State Board of Education with a recommendation that the State Board adopt the mathematics framework; and recommend that the draft mathematics framework, once edited, be sent out for a 60-day public review and comment period. Any future additions to the mathematics framework will be recommended by the IQC and acted upon by the State Board.
