Common Core State Standards in Mathematics

 

As many states transition to the new Common Core State Standards in Mathematics (CCSS-M), AMTE recognizes how important these new standards are to the work of mathematics teacher educators.

The AMTE CCSS-M Task Force is compiling information, resources, and links to help you become more familiar with the CCSS-M and better prepared to address these standards in our work with pre-service teachers and in professional development with in-service teachers at all grade levels.
