Time to Try

K–8 Content Standards by Domains

The following graph is available on the Illustrative Mathematics Web site by domain and by grade level. In addition, examples of tasks can be viewed at the standards level in each grade. Take a few minutes to explore the interactive graph on the K–8 section of the Web site.

High School Conceptual Categories:
The Web site also shows the following graph which is accessible by Conceptual Category. The Modeling Conceptual Category (not represented in the chart) includes standards in Higher Mathematics Courses and is embedded throughout other Conceptual Categories indicated by a (?) symbol. In addition, examples of tasks can be viewed at the standards level. Take a few minutes to explore the interactive graph on the high school section of the Web site.

For additional information about the content standards, refer to the Mathematics: Kindergarten Through Grade Eight Learning Progressions professional learning module in the CCSS for California Educators series.
