I really dislike how the CCS are being highlighted as a "new approach".  Math is math is math!  With the common core we are simply trying to align the order in which we teach concepts and give those concepts more time to be developed at each level. The CCSS will be a living document, made to be adjusted.  Every teacher may still have their own "approach" hopefully one that involves understanding from the learner.  And yes, sometimes memorization is part of understanding.  If you can retrieve a concept fluently, your brain is free for developing deeper understanding.  If you do not have the basic facts (for whatever level you are on) deeper learning becomes quite difficult.  We should not be memorizing things we do not understand.  I believe that is the critical difference between the goals of CCSS and some other math models.
