The Common Core State Standards were released five years ago to ensure that all students graduate from high school with the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in college, career, and life, regardless of where they live. Their widespread adoption, coupled with the development of common assessments, is an unprecedented opportunity for systemic improvement in mathematics education. Where are we today? What have we learned? What are the implications of recent developments and national reports for mathematics curriculum, instruction, and assessment, including future refinement of CCSSM? And, most importantly, what actions should each of us, as teachers, school and district leaders, and professional organizations, including NCTM, take to move mathematics education forward?
