Common Core Critical Areas

Instructional time should focus on

  • writing, evaluating, and interpreting expressions;
  • solving linear equations and inequalities;
  • extending the study of functions from linear to exponential and quadratic;
  • using statistical analysis to analyze relationships between two variables; and
  • analyzing two- and three-dimensional space and figures using distance, angle, similarity, and congruence, and understanding and applying the Pythagorean Theorem.
