## CCSSM: Examining the Critical Areas in Grades 5 and 6

To support mathematics educators as they consider implications of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) for instruction and assessment, Teaching Children Mathematics is publishing a series of feature articles. In this fourth installment, authors Polly and Orrill suggest implementation strategies for grades 5 and 6. A final, cohesive article will appear in the August 2012 issue. Authored by Susan Jo Russell, the last piece concentrates on the implementation of the eight Standards of Mathematical Practice (SMP) and the constellations of Practices and Standards.

## Who Wants Pancakes?

The Who Wants Pancakes? problem, originally published in the May 2017 issue of TCM, uses a recipe as the context to explore representations of mixed-number multiplication. Students are encouraged to use visual images to explain their thinking and to determine answers as they work through the problem.

## Exploring nature through mathematics

Math by the Month is a regular department of the journal, featuring collections of short activities focused on a monthly theme. These articles aim for an inquiry or problem-solving orientation that includes at least four activities each for grade bands K–2, 3–4, and 5–6. In the current issue, mathematics is visible where we least expect it. The use of mathematics gives us a more fruitful understanding of Earth, its animals, and scientific processes. We use math to forecast environmental changes, predict future events, and decide when intervention is necessary to protect the survival of species that are at risk.
