Hi, all of you math education people.

Here is a free book that I believe will be of interest to you and your colleagues:

Moursund, D. and Sylwester, R. Editors (March 2013). Common Core State Standards for K-12 Education in America. Eugene, OR: Information Age Education.

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) initiative began in the United States in 2010. Its initial emphasis on Math and English Language Arts has grown to include Science and History/Social Studies.

Recently, Information Age Education has published a series of ten IAE Newsletters on CCSS. These ten newsletters have been integrated into a book, Common Core State Standards for K-12 Education in America. The set of newsletters has been augmented by an Appendix, Goals of Education in the United States. The book is available free. See http://i-a-e.org/downloads/doc_download/249-common-core-state-standards-for-k-12-education-in-america.html for the Microsoft Word document and http://i-a-e.org/downloads/doc_download/248-common-core-state-standards-for-k-12-education-in-america.html for the PDF.

This book is an experiment in a new way to put together an edited collection of writings. Chapter 10 of the book contains a brief introduction to a number of topics that are suitable for making into additional chapters. Potential authors are encouraged to contact David Moursund (moursund@uorgon.edu) or Robert Sylwester (bobsyl@uoregon.edu) about submitting a chapter based on Chapter 10 ideas or other ideas of their own choice. The book will ?grow? as new chapters are integrated in.

For other free math education materials from Information Age Education see http://iae-pedia.org/Free_Math_Education_Materials. To access all of the free Information Age Education materials go to http://iae-pedia.org/Main_Page.

I would appreciate it if you would give this book some publicity.

Thanks,

Dave
