Transform Math Instruction to Deepen Mathematical Understanding

The jobs of tomorrow will require math skills that include deeper knowledge and the ability to reason, problem solve and apply that knowledge. In order to prepare today’s students to meet the demands of the future, preK-12 educators must be able to deliver rigorous mathematics instruction.

CORE works with educators to increase their mathematics knowledge and their ability to implement high-leverage math instructional strategies. Support is also provided to help educators meet the needs of students with special learning needs. Coaching is available for school leaders to effectively implement core and intervention programs, supplemental materials and assessments.

CORE’s proven model transforms mathematics programs so that all students have the understanding, skills and reasoning abilities to successfully enter their career or college of choice.
