### Common Core Math and CPM

What is the Common Core?
• Process Standards
• 8 Mathematical Practices
• Insight as to what teaching and learning should look like and sound like.
• Difference: from 3 sentences to 3 pages

Content Standards

What content will be taught at each grade level or subject area.

Difference: heavier on algebra; less on basic skills

What are the benefits of the CCSS?
• Consistency across states
• Accurate comparisons
• Level playing fields
Facts vs. Myths
• Myth:
• The math standards don't address algebra until high school.
• Fact:
