The Common Core State Standards in mathematics were built on progressions: narrative documents describing the progression of a topic across a number of grade levels, informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics. These documents were spliced together and then sliced into grade level standards. From that point on the work focused on refining and revising the grade level standards. The early drafts of the progressions documents no longer correspond to the current state of the standards. It is important to produce up-to-date versions of the progressions documents. They can explain why standards are sequenced the way they are, point out cognitive difficulties and pedagogical solutions, and give more detail on particularly knotty areas of the mathematics. This project is organizing the writing of final versions of the progressions documents for the K–12 Common Core State Standards.

The Hunt Institute and CCSSO Release Common Core Implementation Video Series Common Core Implementation Video Series To further aid states as they continue to implement the Common Core State Standards (Standards), the Hunt Institute and the Council of Chief State School Officers have commissioned a series of video vignettes that explain the Standards in far greater depth. Several of the key Standards writers were asked, in their own words, to talk about how the Standards were developedand the goals they set for all students. These videos were developed to help diverse groups – educators, policymakers, parents – better understand the breadth and depth of the Standards and how they will improve teaching, make classrooms better, create shared expectations, and cultivate lifelong learning for all students. The segments are organized into separate Mathematics and ELA sections, and demonstrate critical concepts related to each.

The unpacking documents demonstrate at a granular level the knowledge and skills students are expected to master at a particular grade. Important Note: The current Standard Course of Study will continue to be taught and tested during the 2010-11 and 2011-12 school years. New standards and assessments are to be implemented for the first time beginning with the 2012-13 school year. Please send any thoughts, feedback, questions and ideas about additional resources that would help you start preparing to teach the new standards to English Language Arts Unpacking Standards

Number Strategies: Level 1 The key idea of number strategies at level 1 is that counting can be used to solve number problems. At level 1, students see numbers as made up of ones, and to operate with numbers need to count the individual items. There are two main counting strategies that can be used to solve addition and subtraction problems: Counting from one. The most basic strategy for solving addition and subtraction problems is to count from one. Common Core State Standards Initiative (select any of the links below) The Common Core State Standards (CCSSI) is a joint effort led by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and the Council of Chief State School Officers to develop a common core of K-12 standards in English language arts and Mathematics. Read more about National PTA's position on Education Standards. The goal initiative is to develop internationally-benchmarked standards that ensure all students are held to consistent expectations that will prepare them for college and career.

These ten simple classroom routines can help make math talk a regular part of your day: 1) Start your math block with a strategizing session instead of a traditional warm-up problem.

Tools for the Common Core Standards Please post questions in the forums If you have questions about the standards, please click on the Forums tab above and post them in the appropriate forum. There are forums for each K–8 domain and high school conceptual category, and a general forum for questions that do not fit in any of these. Problem with RSS Feed for Forums Fixed The link to the RSS feed for the forums (on the right of this page) was broken.
