Welcome to Core Focus on Math by SMc Curriculum

Core Focus on Math©2014 is a middle school math curriculum series which spans the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) students need to learn in 6th grade through high school Algebra I.

While including the strengths of the Oregon Focus on Math Series©2008, the foundation of the program is built on the CCSS Priority Clusters (also known as the Critical Areas) as well as strategies to develop the habits of mind in students articulated in the Standards for Mathematical Practice.

There are three texts per grade level, each focusing on multiple clusters of standards in the Common Core and collectively addressing the complete grade level standards.
