Domains are large groups of related standards. Standards from different domains may sometimes be closely related. Look for the name with the code number on it for a Domain.
Clusters are groups of related standards.Standards from different clusters may sometimes be closely related, because mathematics is a connected subject.
Clusters appear inside domains.
Standards define what students should be able to understand and be able to do – part of a cluster.
(There are no preK Common Core Standards)
Domains are NOT courses
Clusters are NOT units
Critical Areas – similar to NCTM’s Curriculum Focal Points
