Standards Maps
Common Core State Standards for Mathematics with California Additions

Basic Grade-Level Programs (Kindergarten through Grade Eight)
Algebra I and Mathematics I Programs

Introduction

Standards Maps are completed by the publisher/manufacturer to demonstrate the alignment of their instructional materials programs to the Common Core State Standards with California additions (CCSS). The Common Core State Standards were produced by the Common Core State Standards Initiative, a state-led effort coordinated by the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and the Council of Chief State School Officers. When the State Board of Education (SBE) adopted those standards on August 2, 2010, they included additions specific to California to reflect the rigor of the existing California 1997 standards. The California Additions were further modified pursuant to Senate Bill 1200 available on the California Legislative Information Web site External link opens in new window or tab. on January 16, 2013. More information about the Common Core State Standards Initiative is available on the Common Core State Standards Initiative Web site External link opens in new window or tab.

The mapping of the standards requires thorough knowledge and accurate notations of the standards as they are presented in each publisher’s instructional program.

Highlights of the Standards

The CCSS for Mathematics in kindergarten through grade eight are organized by grade level and are presented in domains that vary by grade. The higher mathematics standards are organized around conceptual categories such as Algebra, Functions, and Statistics and Probability, and into model courses such as Algebra I and Mathematics I. The CCSS for Mathematics also include Standards for Mathematical Practice that are applicable at all grade levels. These standards describe varieties of expertise that mathematics educators at all levels should seek to develop in their students.

These standards maps will enable reviewers to see how a publisher’s program aligns to the CCSS.

Instructions for Completing Standards Maps
  1. Fill in the header for each grade-level or higher mathematics course map with the publisher's name, the program's title, and list of components (including abbreviations used, such as SE for student edition).
  1. The first two columns have been completed with the required information regarding the CCSS.

    • Column one contains the grade level (or conceptual category for higher mathematics) and content standard number. For standards consisting of multiple parts, all parts must be addressed.

    • Column two contains the text of each mathematics content standard.
  1. Columns three and four (Publisher Citations) are reserved for publishers to use to identify citations (both primary and supporting) for each standard. In these spaces, publishers provide information to help reviewers determine the extent to which each of the standards is covered in the program. Publishers only need to provide citations for numbered standards (i.e., not for the domain or cluster titles in the standards). Accurate and succinct responses are appreciated.
  1. Columns five, six, and seven should be left blank. These columns are provided for reviewers to use as they evaluate whether the program is aligned or not aligned to the standards. The last column is provided for note taking. Evaluations of a program are based on how completely and explicitly the standards are addressed.
  1. Publishers may use the “Appendix” section at the end of each grade-level standards map to provide additional comments regarding their citations on coverage of specific standards, if it is necessary. Publishers should keep the actual citations simple and clearly reference the page number and/or the span of pages.
