A NEW AGE IN MATHEMATICS EDUCATION IN THE U.S.: INTERPRETING THE COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS FOR MATHEMATICS
Main Article Content
For the first time ever in its history, the United States
has a national version for K–12 mathematics programs, the Com-
mon Core State Standards for Mathematics. Since its final version
appeared in 2010 in the United States, the Common Core State
Standards have started getting much attention from the Korean
mathematics and mathematics education communities. Although
attempts have been made to translate the original text of the stan-
dards, the information such as the paradigm shift that led to the
development of the standards, design principles and a comparison
with the NCTM Standards would aid understating the standards in
the intended way and avoiding unnecessary confusion.
