Johnsen (educational psychology, Baylor U.) and Sheffield (mathematics education, Northern Kentucky U.), along with a group of education scholars from the US, supply teachers and administrators with examples and strategies for implementing the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics with gifted and advanced leaders in grades K-12 in different settings, from cluster-grouped classrooms to pull-out programs to special classes and schools, and integrate them with gifted education curricula, instructional practices, and program models. They give examples of the relevant standards, which are matched to activities for typical learners and differentiated for advanced learners. They also present assessment examples, including rubrics, and related material on twenty-first century skills. They describe the research support for the book, how to link math and English language arts standards, implications for professional learning, collaboration with general and special education, and resources to assist with implementation.

Using the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics With Gifted and Advanced Learners provides teachers and administrators examples and strategies to implement the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS) with advanced learners at all stages of development in K-12 schools. The book describes--and demonstrates with specific examples from the CCSS--what effective differentiated activities in mathematics look like for top learners. It shares how educators can provide rigor within the new standards to allow students to demonstrate higher level thinking, reasoning, problem solving, passion, and inventiveness in mathematics. By doing so, students will develop the skills, habits of mind, and attitudes toward learning needed to reach high levels of competency and creative production in mathematics fields.
