Has anybody started to write curriculum for the common core High School

Here is one standard for Geometry : G.GPE.6 Find the point on a
directed line segment between two given points that partitions the
segment in a given ratio.

Do you think this means find the midpoint? (that is what I found on one

or they have to find a point between two given points such that the
ratio of the segments is 3:4 (for example) ? What do they expect the
students to do to find this out?
