Subject: Changes from Appendix A to "A Story of Functions"

Has anyone noticed that there are significant changes from Appendix A to the newly-released Curriculum Overview "A Story of Functions"?  Here are both documents:

http://www.corestandards.org/assets/CCSSI_Mathematics_Appendix_A.pdf

The most glaring example is the exclusion of the probability unit in Geometry according to the curriculum overview versus its inclusion in Geometry in Appendix A. There are also lots of footnotes which greatly limit the scope of what Appendix A suggested.


It looks as though the new curriculum map is aligned to the PARCC Model Content Frameworks:
