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.
