Quick Guide to the Common Core Math Standards

Quick Guide to the Common Core Math Standards | Childhood literacy | Scoop.it

All of mathematics is built on a few basic ideas. The Common Core State Standards aim to have all students thoroughly understand these very few basics (such as how the base-10 system works and what it means to multiply). Students are then asked to use their understanding of these basics, along with important habits of mind such as perseverance and reasoning, to become proficient with the full set of math content standards.
