Helping Your Child Learn Mathematics
Parent Roadmaps to the Common Core Standards
The Council of the Great City Schools parent roadmaps in English language arts and in mathematics provide guidance to parents about what their children will be learning and how they can support that learning in grades K-8. These parent roadmaps also provide three-year snapshots showing how selected standards progress from year to year so that students will be college and career ready upon their graduation from high school.
National PTA Common Core State Standards Initiative
The Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI) is an effort designed to improve educational outcomes for students by developing a set of common, voluntary, internationally-benchmarked academic standards in mathematics and English language arts. For more details, check out the CCSSI overview. (This overview is also available in Spanish.)
