Plenary Session: What faculty in mathematics should know about the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics
Critical Issues in Mathematics Education 2014: The role of the mathematics department in the mathematical preparation of teachers March 26, 2014 - March 28, 2014
Location: MSRI: Simons Auditorium
In 2009–2010, state organizations led an effort to write common standards in mathematics and English language arts; the resulting Common Core State Standards in Mathematics have been adopted by 44 states. Mathematicians and mathematics educators were significantly involved in the writing process. If well implemented, these standards hold the promise of improving the preparation of students for college and career. I will give a brief overview of the standards writing process, the structure of the standards, and the current state of implementation.
