Implementing the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics: A Comparison of Current District Content in 41 States


"Beginning in the spring of 2011 the Center for the Study of Curriculum at Michigan State University conducted a survey of school district curriculum directors/supervisors in the 41 states that had officially adopted the new Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM). The Center's goal was to provide baseline information to inform and guide the efforts of states, local districts, and schools as each entity moves toward implementation of the newly adopted CCSSM. The challenge of implementing the world-class and demanding CCSSM is likely to vary from state to state depending, for example, on the age and quality of a state's former mathematics standards. Additional factors likely to affect CCSSM implementation include the ability of a state education agency to disseminate information and expectations about the standards to local districts, schools, and teachers."
