Mathematics education in Vermont is currently centered on the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). The CCSS for mathematics contain both content and practice standards for students, which define what students should understand and be able to do. The Progressions Project, by the writers of the CCSS, provides a roadmap as to how expectations for students develop within a domain in the standards. These Standards do not dictate curriculum or teaching methods, and are not intended to be new names for old ways of doing business. They are a call to take the next step.
