NCTM's Making It Happen: A Guide to Interpreting and Implementing Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, a 136-page online interactive document connects the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) to NCTM’s:
- Principles and Standards for School Mathematics,
- Curriculum Focal Points for Prekindergarten through Grade 8 Mathematics: A Quest for Coherence,
- Focus in High School Mathematics: Reasoning and Sense Making, and
- Essential Understanding Series.
Building on the Council’s 30-year track record of success in the development of standards for school mathematics, Making It Happen supports teachers, districts, and states in implementing CCSSM. Making It Happen serves as a resource guide for helping educators adopt and enact a shared position on standards, pedagogical processes, and content foci. Online appendixes from the publication area updated as new NCTM resources become available. For more information on Making It Happen, visit www.nctm.org/mih.
