Sample Common Core State Standards for Mathematics Curriculum
School districts make decisions about the identification of additional resources that will support teachers and students in their learning and understanding in mathematics. However, many states that have adopted the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) have created sample curriculum, provided below. Please note that some states may have added 15 percent additional material to the CCSSM to address the needs/requirements of their State education laws. Maine has not added any additional standards to the CCSSM, which is incorporated into the Maine Learning Results.
In addition, some states are members of Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, as Maine is, and some are members of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Career. This should not have too much of an impact regarding curriculum, as the frameworks for both assessments are similar in the sense they are assessing the same CCSSM.
- Colorado Department of Education. K-12 mathematics curriculum samples created by Colorado educators.
- Connecticut State Department of Education. CT Mathematics Unit Planning Organizers are designed to be a resource for developers of curriculum. The documents feature standards organized in units with key concepts and skills identified and a suggested pacing guide for the unit.
- Georgia Department of Education. The Common Core Mathematics framework units were developed under a grant from the U.S. Department of Education. However, the contents do not necessarily represent the policy of the U.S. DOE, and users should not assume endorsement by the federal government. Once you are on this website, you can select the grade span from the left navigation box.
- Illinois State Board of Education. The curriculum units were created so districts may choose to adopt or adapt the models in lieu of developing their own mathematics curriculum.
- Kansas Association of Teachers of Mathematics. The Common Core “Flip Books” are a compilation of research, “unpacked” standards from many states, instructional strategies and examples for each standard at each grade level. The intent is to show the connections to the Standards of Mathematical Practices for the content standards and to get detailed information at each level. All Flip Books are in PDF format.
- Kentucky Department of Education. The complete set of deconstructed standards for mathematics is now available. These standards were created collaboratively by teachers and leaders across the Commonwealth. Please note that these deconstructions have been reviewed, edited and revised based on feedback from internal and external reviewers.
- Louisiana Department of Education. Teachers across Louisiana have collaborated to create year-long scope and sequences for English language arts (ELA) and math. These tools should be adapted to meet the needs of teachers and the specific students they teach. Note: If the login/password prompt appears, click "cancel," and the document you selected will open.
- Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. These units were created by Missouri educators during late winter/early spring 2012. Those teachers worked to create draft units as a basis for the curriculum: Mathematics Model Curriculum Introduction (PDF).
- New York State Mathematics Curriculum Modules for Grades P-12. Curriculum modules in mathematics are marked by in-depth focus on fewer topics.
