Title:Do the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) prepare students for Algebra in grade 8?
Organization:Achieve, Inc.
Short Description:As states consider adoption of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), a frequently asked question is whether the CCSS adequately prepare students in K-7 to take Algebra I, or an equivalent course, in eighth grade. This question is grounded in states’ commitment to improving mathematics performance and graduating students from high school who are ready for college, careers and life.
Annotation:As states consider adoption of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), a frequently asked question is whether the CCSS adequately prepare students in K-7 to take Algebra I, or an equivalent course, in eighth grade. This question is grounded in states’ commitment to improving mathematics performance and graduating students from high school who are ready for college, careers and life. A number of states and districts have made, or are considering making, Algebra l mandatory for all eighth graders, while in other jurisdictions it is not mandatory but strongly encouraged. State and district policies on the question of when students should or must take Algebra I vary greatly throughout the nation. This is the case because the decision about when to introduce Algebra I is dependent on more than just whether students have the necessary content knowledge and includes other important factors for success such as capacity or student maturity.
