## Maryland Common Core State Standards

In June, 2010, the Maryland State Board of Education adopted the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. Since that time, educators from around the state have met to determine the best way for Maryland teachers to transition from the existing State Curriculum to the Common Core State Standards. The units of study and draft frameworks that follow are the result of this work.

## Units of Study

Units of study aligned with the new frameworks have been developed by Maryland educators and shared in the summer academies. Lessons have been aligned with the CCSS.

### Assessment Resources

### Additional Resources

*“In mathematics, the alignment of curriculum, instruction, and assessment is needed if our students are going to experience success. The essential mathematics that should be taught in every classroom throughout Maryland can be found in the State Curriculum. Teaching the curriculum in a way that helps students make sense of what they are learning helps them to view mathematics as a useful subject as opposed to a set of rules to memorize. Finally, formative and summative assessments should reflect the instruction while spanning the various levels of cognitive demand in mathematics.” -Donna Watts*
