The Common Core concentrates on a clear set of math skills and concepts. Students will learn concepts in a more organized way both during the school year and across grades. The standards encourage students to solve real-world problems.
View the Common Core Math Standards on our "HIDOE Standards Toolkit" webpage.
ORIGO Stepping Stones program is the primary math program for grades Kindergarten through grade 5, and Go Math is the primary math program for grade 6. Both programs were reviewed by the Hawaii Department of Education and support the teaching of Common Core State Standards. Our Stepping stones curriculum emphasizes conceptual understanding of mathematics and builds on students’ natural ability to develop understanding and number sense. Our Go Math curriculum focuses on Essential Questions and Big Ideas with depth of understanding as the goal. Teachers supplement instruction with other math resources to ensure success for all students.
