The Common Core State Standards were charged to base their work on evidence. The data revealed a mismatch between higher education and K-12 -- more mastery of fewer topics vs. covering more content. Focus means spending more time on fewer things, especially in lower grades, so that students build success upon foundational skills that they can expand and apply in later grades.

The Common Core Standards have content standards, as well as standards of practice. The standards of practice help students develop habits of mind that enable them to model mathematics to problems arising outside of the mathematics classroom. The math practice standards also ask students to use mathematics tools in flexible, sophisticated, and relevant ways across disciplines.

The Mathematics Common Core Standards can be characterized by their structure designed to build focus and coherence for students. The standards in elementary and middle school are organized into domains that have discrete life spans with increased focus. In high school, the standards are designed to include real-world applications and modeling into other discplines.
