QRGs also include how mathematically proficient students demonstrate the 8 Standards for Math Practice in each grade span. As stated in the document "To become college and career ready, students must be able to problem-solve, reason and prove, communicate, represent, make connections, conceptualize, and strategize in mathematics." 

Common Core Roadmaps for Math

The common core roadmaps provide an overview by grade level of important concepts and models your child will be using in the classroom. This resource is helpful for understanding how math is being taught in the classroom today. The roadmaps provide guidance on questions you may want to ask your child's teacher to understand their math performance and progress.
