The correlation to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) provides the main page references in Core-Plus Mathematics Courses 1-3 and Course 4: Preparation for Calculus for each of the CCSS mathematical content standards. By design, the Core-Plus Mathematics curriculum introduces topics in a developmentally appropriate manner. Thus, some of the content expectations are introduced in Course 1 and treated at increasing depth in later courses. This document indicates both the pages where a topic is first introduced and where it is extended in later courses. Some of the CCSS standards are also addressed by the solution of problems in the curriculum that require use of mathematics or statistics from several standards. Thus, an algebra standard may be employed while completing a geometry problem in Core-Plus Mathematics. You will notice this most often in the homework tasks labeled as Connections tasks. Standards are also addressed within the Review tasks with each lesson.
Note that in the CCSS, additional mathematics that students should learn in order to take advanced courses such as calculus, advanced statistics, or discrete mathematics are indicated by a +.
The Core-Plus Mathematics curriculum, by design, incorporates the CCSS Mathematical Practices into each lesson. Descriptions of the Mathematical Practices listed below along with selected examples of these practices in each Core-Plus Mathematics text are provided in the correlation PDF.
Note that Model with Mathematics is a CCSS Standard for Mathematical Practice, and specific modeling standards appear throughout the high school standards indicated by a ★.
department is excited about implementation of the new Common Core
State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS). We believe that the
change will be relatively easy for our program because Core-Plus
Mathematics aligns well with the CCSS, including the Mathematical
Practices Standards. Our students are engaged daily in problem
solving, reasoning, making sense of mathematics, and using technological

is amazing how closely the second edition of Core-Plus Mathematics aligns
with the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, both in content
and in the vision of mathematical proficiency described by the
Standards for Mathematical Practice! The Modeling Standard is embedded
seamlessly throughout all four courses, supporting students as
they develop creative problem solving strategies, and emphasizing
the rich connections among the different strands of mathematics."
