Focus strongly where the Standards focus

The Standards call for a greater focus in mathematics. Rather than racing to cover topics in today’s mile‐wide, inch‐deep curriculum, teachers use the power of the eraser and significantly narrow and deepen the way time and energy is spent in the math classroom. They focus deeply on the major work of each grade so that students can gain strong foundations: solid conceptual understanding, a high degree of procedural skill and fluency, and the ability to apply the math they know to solve problems inside and outside the math classroom.
