Math Common Core resources

By Kay Middleton

In 2010, North Carolina adopted the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM). These standards are being used for instruction and assessment in North Carolina’s public schools for the first time in the 2012-2013 academic year. This guide provides resources for teachers, administrators, and parents to help them understand the content and intent of the standards, their impact on teaching and learning, and how students will be assessed on these standards.

The introduction to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics states,

These Standards are not intended to be new names for old ways of doing business. They are a call to take the next step. It is time for states to work together to build on lessons learned from two decades of standards based reforms. It is time to recognize that standards are not just promises to our children, but promises we intend to keep. (p. 5)

The resources included here are meant to assist educators in taking that next step.
