Common Core State Standards - Mathematics Resources


The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for Mathematics are the foundation of the K-12 Oregon Diploma; the Essential Skill of "apply mathematics" is embedded within the CCSS.

Moving to common standards in two content areas represents a major change for Oregon. ODE and its educational partners, are committed to providing educators with the tools they need to understand and implement the Common Core.
