Maryland Common Core State Curriculum Frameworks
In June, 2010, the MD 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 Essential Skills and Knowledge associated with these standards. The DRAFT Maryland Common Core State Curriculum Frameworks, listed by grade/course to the right, are the result of this work. It is important to view these frameworks in color. The Common Core State Standards appear in black and the Essential Skills and Knowledge added by Maryland educators appear in red. Additional information is contained in the content documents. These draft frameworks will be introduced to teachers and administrators at the Educator Effectiveness Academies this summer. Over the next several years, the Maryland Common Core State Curriculum will be developed by Maryland educators to support the implementation of these new standards.

MD StandardsState Curriculum Introduction
“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
