Language, Vocabulary Acquisition and Use, Grades 11-12, #4.c. Consult general and specialized reference materials (e.g., dictionaries, glossaries, thesauruses), both print and digital, to find the pronunciation of a word or determine or clarify its precise meaning, its part of speech, or its etymology or its standard usage.

Mathematics - Standards for Mathematical Practice and Technology
5 Use appropriate tools strategically. Mathematically proficient students consider the available tools when solving a mathematical problem. These tools might include pencil and paper, concrete models, a ruler, a protractor, a calculator, a spreadsheet, a computer algebra system, a statistical package, or dynamic geometry software. Proficient students are sufficiently familiar with tools appropriate for their grade or course to make sound decisions about when each of these tools might be helpful recognizing both the insight to be gained and their limitations. For example, mathematically proficient high school students analyze graphs of functions and solutions generated using a graphing calculator. They detect possible errors by strategically using estimation and other mathematical knowledge. When making mathematical models, they know that technology can enable them to visualize the results of varying assumptions, explore consequences, and compare predictions with data. Mathematically proficient students at various grade levels are able to identify relevant external mathematical resources,such as digital content located on a website, and use them to pose or solve problems. They are able to use technological tools to explore and deepen their understanding of concepts.

These new standards have technology embedded in them, and the PARCC assessment is driven by technology use. We need to maximize our students' technology skills and use to both meet these standards and prepare for these assessments. 

At the K-2 level, we need to prepare students for the ELA and mathematics portions of the PARCC assessments which begin in 3rd grade. If that preparation does not occur, it will be impossible for 3rd graders to be properly prepared.

The purpose of this web page is to assist educators in meeting these challenges.
