I am a Canadian Teacher and I am very curious about math
standards in the USA. I understand that there is a list of
common core state standards that everyone needs to
follow...have most states adopted this as is, or are there
states that have added significantly to the common core?
Our province is in the process of implementing new
curriculum and that in turns gives us as teachers the
opportunity to take a critical look at what we are working
with and how we can improve our programs. As American
teachers, what are your thoughts on the current core
standards? Do you find them "workable?" Are there too many
standards to meet? Not enough? Would love your feedback,
esp in regards to the math curriculum. Thanks.
