What are the Common Core Standards?

The Common Core State Standards are a set of guidelines that outline what students should know and be able to do in two subjects – math and English language arts (ELA). These guidelines are defined for each grade level from kindergarten to high school. 

The aim of the standards is to provide a consistent understanding of what students are expected to learn. They also provide teachers and parents with tools to help students succeed in college and in their careers.

The standards are designed to be comprehensive and applicable to real-world situations. And they are meant to reflect the knowledge and skills that students need in order to put their best foot forward.

Common core standards for Math and ELA

The Common Core State Standards for Math are divided into two main categories: the Standards for Mathematical Practice, and the Standards for Mathematical Content.

The Standards for Mathematical Practice include abilities like making sense of problems, abstract and quantitative reasoning, and modeling with mathematics. The Standards for Mathematical Content include topics like algebra, geometry, probability and statistics, and functions.  

Similarly, the Common Core State Standards for ELA are divided into the Standards for Reading and the Standards for Writing and Language. The Standards for reading include both literature and informational texts. And the standards for writing and language include skills that aim to develop students into effective writers, communicators, and thinkers.
