Common Core State Standards Initiative

Common Core State Standards Initiative | Resources for Early Education and Elementary Mathematics | Scoop.it

For more than a decade, research studies of mathematics education in high-performing countries have concluded that mathematics education in the United States must become substantially more focused and coherent in order to improve mathematics achievement in this country. To deliver on this promise, the mathematics standards are designed to address the problem of a curriculum that is “a mile wide and an inch deep.”

Tracy B. Watterson's insight:

To learn more about the standards in Vermont go to http://education.vermont.gov/common-core.

Math in Practice Series

Math in Practice Series | Resources for Early Education and Elementary Mathematics | Scoop.it

"Math in Practice, the new resource from Susan O’Connell and colleagues, is a comprehensive, grade-by-grade resource designed to fit with any math program or resource you are using. It is not a curriculum. It identifies the big ideas of both math content and math teaching and shares key instructional strategies—and why those strategies matter. Math in Practice will support teachers, administrators, and entire school communities as they rethink the effective teaching of mathematics in grades K–5."
