Synopses & Reviews
Common Core Mathematics is the most comprehensive Common Core State Standards-based mathematics curriculum available today.- The modules are sequenced and paced to support the teaching of mathematics as an unfolding story that follows the logic of mathematics itself.
- They embody the instructional “shifts” and the standards for mathematical practice that are fundamental to the CCSS.
- Each module contains a sequence of lessons that combine conceptual understanding, fluency, and application to meet the demands of each topic in the module.
- Formative assessments are included to support data-driven instruction.
- The modules are written by teams of master teachers and mathematicians.
With Common Core Mathematics, second graders learn about (1) extending understanding of base-ten notation; (2) building fl uency with addition and subtraction; (3) using standard units of measure and (4) describing and analyzing shapes.

Common Core (www.commoncore.org) is a nonprofit organization formed in 2007 to advocate for a content-rich liberal arts education in America’s K-12 schools. To improve education in America, Common Core creates curriculum materials and also promotes programs, policies, and initiatives at the local, state, and federal levels that provide students with challenging, rigorous instruction in the full range of liberal arts and sciences. Common Core is not affi liated with the Common Core State Standards Initiative.
