This move by NC is proof positive that the CCSS is not a curriculum. In fact, GA moved away from integrated math. Reason cited--CCSS

CCSS Math: GA moves away from "integrated math" | Get Schooled

CCSS Math: GA moves away from "integrated math" | Get Schooled | Techies Unite | Scoop.it

"Georgia is moving away from its experiment with integrated math in its adoption of the Common Core State Standards."

"Common Core Georgia Performance Standards is not Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 of days gone by. Statistics content is integrated into every CCGPS high school math class. So, parents will not be seeing a return to the math that they took in high school."

"State School Superintendent John Barge stopped short of saying local school systems must switch to the more traditional method of teaching math. But he said school systems that continue with integrated math could find that “risky,” once states start testing on the Common Core.

Officials in several school districts — including Gwinnett and Cobb — said they’re already planning to teach traditional math in next year’s change-up to the Common Core, with a curriculum and, eventually, testing that’s similar across the states and allows for state-to-state comparisons.

“What is really frustrating is that we have spent tremendous resources to train teachers, spent substantial time in pulling additional resources to align with the integrated curriculum, and, subsequently, asked students to perform at high levels while the curriculum has been in flux,” he said. “Now, we begin the process over again.”

Susan Andrews, school superintendent in Muscogee County, said many students did well with the integrated approach. “But it was difficult to communicate to parents and out-of-state universities and hard on students moving in and out of state.”
