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 les- sons 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.
In Common Core Mathematics, Algebra I, students encounter a more ambitious version of Algebra I than has generally been offered. The modules deepen and extend students' understanding of linear and exponential relationships by contrasting them with each other and by applying linear models to data that exhibit a linear trend. Students also engage in methods for analyzing, solving, and using quadratic functions. The Mathematical Practice Standards apply throughout each course and, together with the content standards, prescribe that students experience mathematics as a coherent, useful, and logical subject that makes use of their ability to make sense of problem situations.
Common Core Learning Standards Addressed in Algebra I, Module 2: S-ID.1, S-ID.2, S-ID.3, S-ID.5, S-ID.6, S-ID.7, S-ID.8, S-ID.9

The New York Edition is nearly identical to the national version but available earlier for the 2013-2014 school year.
This Module addresses Descriptive Statistics and corresponds to standards S-ID.1, S-ID.2, S-ID.3, S-ID.5, S-ID.6, S-ID.7, S-ID.8, S-ID.9
