  Jessica Simpson MATH 2010 Professor Diaz 9/13/2017 Common Core Essay In teaching today common core and collaborative learning are both important. Part of common core is that students need to be able work together by creating arguments and thinking through the reasoning of the other students, and a great way to do this is in a group learning environment. Both common core and collaborative learning are there to help improve student achievement. Common core is designed specifically to define what mathematics the children will need to be ready for college and a career. It is made up of standards for mathematical practice which include, making sense of problems and persevere in solving them, reasoning abstractly and quantitatively, construction viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others, modeling with mathematics, using appropriate tools strategically, attending to precision, looking for and making use of structure, and looking for and expressing regularity in repeated reasoning. Collaborative learning works in hand with the third standard, constructing viable arguments and critiquing the reasoning of others. It is any setting where we have people that are getting together to solve a  problem and teachers can assign these groups based on factors that they see fit for the problem. With collaborative learning the students are working together using the other common core standards to find a solution, due to the fact that everyone thinks things through differently there  are sometimes disagreements or even ideas that need to be re thought out and reimagined. Overall these two points work hand in hand. I feel that thus far in the course all of the activities fit this perfectly, my mother who is a tech at our local elementary school has even stated that a few of the activities that we have done they have taught to their students as well. Take the first activity that we did in class, where we need to come up with as many stair cases as we can with a certain number of blocks. This is teaching standards 1, 4, 5, 7, and 8, and they are learning how to solve problems. Now I find that they Polya method that we learned in class was something that I was already doing just in my head not on paper so this four step process is how I would teach it to the students. First truly understanding the problem, devising a plan, trying the plan, and then going over it again or looking back at what worked or did not. Have the groups do all these steps together letting them have a bit of a productive struggle to solve the problem, and then have them look back at what they have done. Common core and collaborative learning work hand in hand because collaborative learning is getting students in groups to carry out the standards that common core wants to focus on. The students get to work together something that in elementary school is great fun, and they are learning together and debating the ways to solve problems. They are carrying out the steps to solve problems and learning skills that will prepare them for the future which is what common core is all about.
