Overview

Common Core Mathematics is the most comprehensive Common Core State Standards-based mathematics curriculum available today.

• The modules are sequenced and paced to support the teaching of mathematics as an unfolding story that follows the logic of mathematics itself.
• They embody the instructional "shifts" and the standards for mathematical practice that are fundamental to the CCSS.
• Each module contains a sequence of lessons that combine conceptual understanding, fluency, and application to meet the demands of each topic in the module.
• Formative assessments are included to support data-driven instruction.
• The modules are written by teams of master teachers and mathematicians.

With Common Core Mathematics, eighth graders learn about (1) formulating and reasoning about expressions and equations, including modeling an association in bivariate data with a linear equation, and solving linear equations and systems of linear equations; (2) grasping the concept of a function and using functions to describe quantitative relationships; (3) analyzing two- and three-dimensional space and figures using distance, angle, similarity, and congruence, and understanding and applying the Pythagorean Theorem.
