I've run through all of the documentation both from the Common Core and from New York State on engageny.org and the important question of what we're teaching in which course is very much unanswered. The documentation has all of high school math laid out by overarching topic and not by course. The only documentation I can find by course are those documents kindly posted by www.jmap.org, and that documentation is a draft with lots of cross outs and ambiguities. If I am not looking in the right spot on the engaging website, please point me in the right direction :)

While I believe in the Common Core, it will only be successful in New York if teachers know what they are responsible for teaching in each course. The current documentation is inexcusably nebulous and quite unhelpful in deciding the direction of our year-to-year curricula.

The other concern I have with the Common Core is that it seems as though it is being phased in all at once. I would argue that kids coming from the eighth grade into the new algebra course as outlined by the JMAP documents are in for a rude awakening in terms of what they are being asked to do and understand. This is why it is critical that NYSED do a lot more than it has done in terms of getting districts and teachers ready for the Core.
