PRESENTED BY THE MATH CURRICULUM COMMITTEE:
Thoughts are so powerful. You've got to change the way you think in order to change the way you feel."
These Standards are not intended to be new names for old ways of doing business. They are a call to take the next step. It is time for states to work together to build on lessons learned from two decades of standards based reforms. It is time to recognize that standards are not just promises to our children, but promises we intend to keep. CCSSM p. 5
• Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI) is a state-led effort coordinated by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO)
• The standards were developed in collaboration with teachers, school administrators, and experts to provide a clear and consistent framework to prepare our children for college and the workforce.
• CCSS has been adopted by 45 states, 1 territory (U.S. Virgin Islands), and the District of Columbia as of April 2012.
What students need for their futureis as much about howthey think as it is about what they know, and helping students succeed is as much about how we teach as about what we teach.Cathy Seeley, October 2011
