Math teachers, students and principals in Winnetka Public Schools District 36 in Illinois will begin the school year with a new math curriculum aligned with the Common Core State Standards. A math committee worked for two years on the curriculum, said Alison Hawley, the district's director of curriculum and instruction. Many of the common core's practices already were being used in the classroom, she said, but there were adjustments, such as teaching some math concepts earlier and adoption of new textbooks.
