School Improvement in Maryland

Teaching And Learning: Mathematics

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.
