The Common Core presents a careful, prescribed sequence of mathematics for elementary and middle school, but the sequence of mathematic instruction in high school has historically varied across the nation. Therefore, at the high school level, the Common Core Mathematics Standards present math subject matter and do not dictate courses. Modeling and probability/statistics is included in all math subjects.

The Importance of Focus in Mathematics
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

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.
