Making the Switch – Common Core Standards – Mathematics

As we begin this new school year, how many of you will be implementing the new common core standards for mathematics? If so,

  • How are you feeling about this transition?
  • What are the challenges you’re facing?
  • Do you have a support group in place at the school, district, and/or state level?
  • Are you using social media to connect with fellow math teachers experiencing the same transition? If so, which ones?
If you’re not implementing the new standards until next school year, this is the year to reach out and learn from those who are! Please share and collaborate here.

Do you think this a positive or a negative shift?

What do foresee to be the immediate effects this year?
