How Common Is the Common Core?
Thomas, Amande; Edson, Alden J.
Mathematics Teacher, v108 n5 p382-386 Dec 2014
Since the introduction of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) in 2010, stakeholders in adopting states have engaged in a variety of activities to understand CCSSM standards and transition from previous state standards. These efforts include research, professional development, assessment and modification of curriculum resources, and "crosswalk" documents summarizing key differences between previous and forthcoming standards. In this article, the authors present what might be considered an abbreviated crosswalk between these two standards documents based on comparative analysis of individual standards in the "Principles and Standards for School Mathematics" (PSSM) and CCSSM. To illustrate potentially new and notable content emphases, they include selected mathematics tasks that correspond to CCSSM standards.
