PRIME 2: Leadership within the Common Core State Standards
PRIME 2 is intended for leaders, in the broadest sense, working together as Leadership Teams, responsible for moving or influencing individuals and groups towards a common goal of improving mathematics achievement for every student. The NCSM Board needs your input on the direction of this new document. NCSM's current PRIME Leadership Framework (2008) is the result of the vision and strategic planning of the organization. It reflects the knowledge, wisdom, and beliefs of the NCSM Board of Directors in support of its members. The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) has changed both the context and the urgency for strong mathematics education leadership. Accordingly, the NCSM Board has charged a committee of expert writers to update the PRIME Leadership Framework to reflect the leadership required to support the widespread implementation of the CCSS in concert with NCSM's central vision of networking, communication, support, and motivation for mathematics leaders.

Teaching Primary Mathematics with More Understanding and Less Counting
Research suggests that children's future mathematics achievement depends upon their early mathematics skills. Young learners must develop a robust mental infrastructure, based on logic and understanding, not rote counting. Most children do best with a visual process (not auditory) incorporating fives' groupings and explicit number naming. Struggling learners especially benefit.

The Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice: A Classroom Model for Success
BIO. Jennifer Wilson has been an educator for 20 years and has spent 16 of those years teaching and learning mathematics with students and teachers at Northwest Rankin High School in Flowood, Mississippi. Jennifer and her students enter into a community of learning together at the beginning of each school year. While it is their tangible goal to study the measure of the earth (geometry) and to study change in motion (calculus), their intangible goal is to enter the practice of learning. While her students enjoy her class because she helps them develop and understand algorithms, theorems, and concepts using technology appropriately and patience infinitely, what she is really trying to help them understand is how to recognize patterns themselves as they learn to live responsibly, diagnose problems, and defend justice on their own. Jennifer has been named by four students for the Student-Teacher Achievement Recognition (STAR) program, and she is a national instructor and author for the Texas Instruments Teachers Teaching with Technology (T3) program. She also serves on the College Board's pre-AP Mathematics Development Committee. Most recently, she was named by President Obama as a recipient of the prestigious Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. Jennifer has a B.S. and a M.S. in mathematics from Mississippi College, and she is a National Board Certified Teacher.

Engage Them! Making Mathematics Fun and Relevant to Kids Today
Danica McKellar, best known as "Winnie Cooper" on The Wonder Years and "Elsie Snuffin" on The West Wing, is now a three-time New York Times bestselling author with her groundbreaking books, Math Doesn't Suck, Kiss My Math and Hot X: Algebra Exposed. Her newest and fourth book, Girls Get Curves: Geometry Takes Shape, hit the shelves in August 2012. In the context of fun topics like popularity and jewelry-making as well as stories from her own life, Danica shows girls and their parents how to master many of the tough math concepts that are introduced in middle school and high school - the time when young girls begin to shy away from math. A summa cum laude graduate of UCLA, Danica concurrently earned her undergraduate degree in mathematics while participating original research - she co-authored a paper in the field of statistical mechanics titled, "Percolation and Gibbs States Multiplicity for Ferromagnetic Ashkin-Teller Models on Z2," which she presented at the 87th biannual Statistical Mechanics conference at Rutgers University. Her theorem has since been dubbed, "The Chayes-McKellar-Winn Theorem," was published in Britain's esteemed Journal of Physics, and has been featured on the front page of the Science section of The New York Times. In addition to continuing her acting career with such roles as a recurring spot on CBS's hit show How I Met Your Mother and a guest appearance on The Big Bang Theory this year, Danica voices the regular role of "Miss Martian" on Cartoon Network's Young Justice which debuted November 2010. She also recurs as a voice on Phineas and Ferb and Generator Rex, with reunites her with Wonder Years co-star Fred Savage. This year, she also filmed a starring role in the futuristic Tasmanian Devils for the SyFy Network and will appear in the Lifetime feature film Love at the Christmas Table in November 2012.

The CCSS Number Base Ten (NBT) Learning Path: From Strategies to Variations in the Standard Algorithms
For multidigit computation, the Common Core State Standards specify a learning path of successive reflections on written methods that first are recordings of reasoning with visual tools (concrete models or drawings) and then move to become the standard algorithms. We will discuss methods within this path, including acceptable variations of the standard algorithms.
