Purpose of the Public Hearings

Public hearings will be conducted to receive public comment on the recommended modifications to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics with California Additions and the Model Courses for Higher Mathematics.

Senate Bill 1200 (Chapter 654, Statutes of 2012) authorizes the State Superintendent of Public Instruction (SSPI) to recommend, and the State Board of Education (SBE) to adopt, reject, or modify, modifications to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics that were adopted by the SBE on August 2, 2010. The SSPI recommendations are presented in “Recommended Modifications to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics with California Additions and Model Courses for Higher Mathematics” (Attachment 1), available at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ci/ma/cf/documents/att1jan13item04.doc. (DOC) The recommendations include the organization of standards for higher mathematics into model courses in both the traditional pathway (Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II) and integrated pathway (Mathematics I, II, and III). Table 1 (Attachment 2), available at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ci/ma/cf/documents/att2jan13item04.doc, (DOC) provides a summary of the recommended modifications to the California additions.
