Major Work of Grade Levels (Focus)

In order to preserve the focus and coherence of the Common Core State Standards, grade level clusters have been designated as major, additional, or supporting. The major clusters comprise the major work of each grade level and should make up a majority (approximately 75%) of instructional time. In addition, major work should especially predominate in the first half of the year. Supporting work should enhance the focus and coherence by engaging students, when possible, in connections to the major work of the grade level.

Progressions (Coherence)

The Common Core State Standards in mathematics (CCSS-M) were built on developmental progressions of how students move through successive refinements from informal to complex ideas. The following printable pdf's demonstrate developmental progressions organized by domain across grade levels.

Instructional Resources

The Michigan Association of Intermediate School Administrators is coordinating the development of model units, lessons and assessments for each grade level K-11 around the Common Core State Standards for Math.

The Georgia Department of Education developed CCGPS Mathematics framework units under a grant from the U. S. Department of Education. For access to all units and curriculum maps please use the link below.

Explore materials, aligned to the CCSSM standards and tasks you can use immediately with your students. Note that you can make use of these standards through searching by grade level as well as by progression.
Inside Mathematics

The Mathematics Assessment Program (MAP) is a collaboration between the University of California, Berkeley and the Shell Center team at the University of Nottingham, with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The team works with the Silicon Valley Mathematics Initiative and school systems across the US and UK to develop improved assessment. The materials from this project will exemplify CCSSM in explicit down-to-earth performance terms.
