Abstract

The adoption of Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) has implications for state-level curriculum, policy, and assessment. For most states, including North Carolina, the CCSSM represents a departure from recent state curricula and requires more than a simple “retooling” of content organization. To respond to such change, district and school-level leaders must share a common vision of high-quality mathematics teaching based on common understandings. Just as importantly, classroom teachers must share this vision. In this chapter, the authors describe the Appalachian Mathematics Partnership (AMP), the factors that have significant impact on partners, an activity, and how the understanding gained from this activity impacted future professional development with the goal of working towards a shared vision and coherence.
