Fifth grade students have been using methods taught through Idaho Core Standards for the last few years. From building a foundation for critical thinking and problem solving at an early age, these students can now apply various methods, whichever work best for them, to solve real-world problems.

The video below shows how these fifth grade students apply the core standards to a math problem in just a few minutes.

See how a foundation for education is built at the kindergarten level.

New standards are being implemented in classrooms across the United State – Idaho has adopted the Idaho Core Standards and teachers are hard at work creating curricula using the standards as a foundation.

Students are learning new methods of critical thinking and problem solving. The fourth graders in the video below demonstrate how they use these various methods to solve a math problem in minutes.

Since the implementation of Idaho Core Standards in the classroom over the last few years, several questions have been raised about how the standards will change education – some of which include why the standards teach some methods that many parents haven’t heard of, what students will be learning, and more.

This video clarifies what the standards look like in the classroom. As this third grade teacher poses a real-life question to students, the students choose to solve the problem using whichever model works best for them. These new standards teach students critical thinking skills and new ways to problem solve.

Teachers have been taking the new Idaho Core Standards and building their in-class curriculum around them for the last few years. Students in kindergarten are being taught essential problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, building a foundation for a successful future.

Below is a video demonstrating what the Idaho Core Standards look like from the teacher and student perspective. These  kindergarteners demonstrate how they each solve the same math problem using different models and techniques using curricula set forth by their teachers based on  Idaho Core Standards.

The Idaho Core Standards have been implemented in schools across Idaho and educators are using those standards to put together curricula to teach students new problem-solving skills and critical-thinking. To demonstrate how teachers are implementing the Idaho Core Standards and how students are applying different methods to problem solving, the first graders in the video below solve a math problem using a method that is preferable to their learning style.

Teachers across Idaho have been hard at work implementing the Idaho Core Standards over the last few years. These new problem-solving abilities and critical thinking skills can apply not only in the classroom, but also in the real world. This second grade school teacher presents students with a real-world problem, asking them to use the methods that work best for them in order to solve the problem. Take a look at how these second graders apply various learnings based on the Idaho Core Standards to solve the same math problem.
