Preparing America to Compete through Math Ed

The proposed Common Core standard is similar in earlier grades but has significantly lower expectations with respect to algebra and geometry than the published standards of other countries I examined. The Common Core standards document is prepared with less care and is less useful to teachers and math ed administrators than the other standards I examined. I have reservations about the Common Core standards regarding statistics in grades 7 and 8.
Ze'ev Wurman & Bill Evers - The California Academic Content Standards Commission is considering adopting the national Common Core standards in place of the state's existing standards and at the same time also modestly augmenting the Common Core standards in order to maintain the rigor of California's expectations of students.
