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.

Spring Math Practices Workshop

As you approach the end of a school year and begin to ponder the mathematical practices you would like to strengthen in your students and teacher tools you would like to add to your instruction for 2016-17, we invite you to a powerful workshop on engaging students in the mathematics classroom!

Join us in Wilsonville, OR on May 13, 2016.
