Comparing the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics to California and Massachusetts Standards. Achieving the Common Core
Achieve, Inc.
Through the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) Initiative, states and territories have collaborated in the development of a common core of standards in English Language Arts and mathematics for grades kindergarten through twelve that are now being adopted by states. Designed not only for the purpose of providing strong, shared expectations, the Common Core State Standards will also allow adopting states to collectively create and share high-quality tools such as assessments, curricula, instructional materials (such as textbooks and software), and professional development programs. As educators and policymakers review the CCSS in mathematics, they will want to consider the way these new standards compare to, and build on, existing standards in mathematics. This brief describes the comparison between the CCSS and the standards of two states that have been leaders in mathematics education: California and Massachusetts. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
