How has Common Core Mathematics Instruction changed the classroom?

  • Students continually ask themselves, "Does this make sense?"
  • Students attend to the meaning of quantities, no just how to compute the them.
  • Students listen to the arguments of others, and ask useful questions to determine if an argument makes sense.
  • Students apply the mathematics they know to solve everyday problems.
  • Students use technological tools to deepen their understanding of mathematics.
  • Students communicate precisely with others and try to use clear mathematical language when discussing their reasoning.
  • Students apply general mathematical patterns, rules or procedures to specific situations.
  • Students see the overall process of the problem and still attend to details in the problem-solving steps.
