## Learn about the content standardsCalifornia's State Board of Education adopted the "CaCCSS-M" (California Common Core State Standards for Mathematics) on August 2, 2010. To better understand the content standards that California adopted, see CDE site below and also the "Illustrative Mathematics Project."
TIP: Learn by doing: sign up to serve as a reviewer of sample tasks on the Illustrative website. Read these tasks in tandem with Progressions documents. |
## Learn about the practice standardsCommon Core's eight (8) "Standards for Mathematical Practice" describe ways students engage with the content standards throughout grades K-12. California adopted all eight of the standards, for every grade level, found at the national Common Core website.
TIP: Mathematical Practices will be assessed alongside content standards in Common Core, including optional performance tasks under development for grades 9, 10. |
## Learn about the aligned assessmentsGet familiar with the type of Common Core-aligned math tasks that "Smarter Balanced" (SBAC) math assessments will use (grades 3-8 & 11), and the claims, rationales, targets, evidence, and reporting categories, at: http://www.smarterbalanced.org/The "Pilot Test" from Smarter Balanced is now available online.

**Register Now for MfA SD 2013 Mathematics Common Core Summer Institute with Algebra Content**

*Math for America San Diego is offering the “2013 Mathematics Common Core Summer Institute” to promote better understanding of the Common Core State Standards for algebra. The CCSS include eight mathematical practices, called Standards for Mathematical Practices. The institute will focus on the connection between the CCSS content of algebra and these practices. Participants will learn how to implement these practices as they teach algebra. The institute supports teachers of Algebra 1 and Algebra 2. Registration is open to all San Diego County middle and high school mathematics teachers, including pre-service and special education teachers. The one-week institutes are June 17-21 or Aug. 12-16, 2013. The cost is $575 or $500 if registered by May 1. UC San Diego Extension credit is available for an additional fee. For more information, contact Susan Millen at sandiego@mathforamerica.org.*

Notice the California Department of Education website on Common Core shares many resources (including some on iTunes), and includes information as to the Supplemental Instructional Materials approved by the State Board of Education this November, 2012.

Look forward to Winter/Spring, 2013 opportunities to give input to the draft Mathematics Framework aligned to Common Core.
