"Common Core Standards”—What does it mean to you?

Location: UCB 100

In 2013-14, the Hawaiʻi Department of Education adopted the new Common Core Standards-based math curriculum for Algebra I and II. This talk presents the implications of the new standards for Hawaiʻi’s parents and students, the struggles states are going through across the nation to adopt the new standards, and how Hawaiʻi is tackling this challenge.

Dr. Mitchell Anderson is the senior Mathematics Department member at UH Hilo. He is one of three primary authors of the Common Core High School Mathematics Curriculum for Hawaiʻi, and was a driving force behind its inception. He has had considerable input into developing the Smarter Balanced Consortium’s national exam (SBAC), which is set to be administered to all 11th graders across multiple states beginning this academic year.


Hosted by University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Faculty Congress and the College of Continuing Education and Community Service (CCECS)
