Common Core: Math
How is math education different under the Common Core?
THE SHIFTS IN MATH
- Focus strongly where the Standards focus
- Coherence: Think across grades, and link to major topics within grades
- Rigor: In major topics pursue conceptual understanding, procedural skill and fluency, and application with equal intensity
We hear from educators across the country that understanding the Shifts makes their lives easier by clarifying the key changes required by the Standards. These resources support a foundational understanding for the CCSS.
