**While North Carolina and the Diocese of Raleigh may follow the suggestions of the "COMMON CORE STANDARDS (CCS)" objectives and grouping of material, we are free to teach and**

**present the material as we feel appropriate.**

**The CCS objectives are useful since many teaching resources have been designed to integrate with the curriculum.**

**MATH Common Core Objectives**

Mathematics is a LANGUAGE. In order to be successful, it requires practice and discipline.

While it is necessary to learn the vocabulary, rules and symbols, there is also an ART to solving problems.

It is not always about "ARITHMETIC" .

Increased learning requires the understanding and connection to previously learned (mastered) ideas and concepts.

Math is not about getting an answer but application of the principles to solve problems.

*and building a foundation for future learning.*

**SHOWING THE WORK IS CRITICAL FOR UNDERSTANDING**
