About the Project

The Common Core High School Mathematics (CCHSM) project is a collaborative effort among six school districts and the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

The desired long-term outcome of the project is improved high school student learning in mathematics in relation to the learning expectations in the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM), resulting in students who are prepared for success in postsecondary education and the workforce. In support of this desired outcome, the immediate goals of the project are:

Goal 1: Deepen teachers’ content knowledge related to critical high school conceptual categories in the CCSSM;

Goal 2: Transform teachers’ instruction through the Standards for Mathematical Practice;

Goal 3: Establish a collaborative professional community of Grades 8-12 teachers within and across the partnership districts.
