### 2013-2014 CCGPS Mathematics Unit Frameworks

Teacher and Student Editions of the 2013-2014 CCGPS Mathematics Unit Frameworks were posted on July 1, 2013, to GeorgiaStandards.Org and Learning Village. These unit frameworks reflect the thoughtful collaboration and dedication of mathematics teachers, coaches, and supervisors from across the state of Georgia. Please refer to the release date of July 1, 2013, on the footer of the documents to insure you have accessed the most recent version.

### 6-8 CCGPS Mathematics Overview

The 6-8 standards are organized using domains, overarching ideas that connect topics across the grades, clusters that illustrate progression of increasing complexity from grade to grade, and standards which define what students should know and be able to do at each grade level. These standards include skills and knowledge – what students need to know and be able to do, as well as mathematical practices – habits of mind that students should develop to foster mathematical understanding and expertise.

The 6-8 standards are organized in the following domains: ratios and proportional relationships, the number system, expressions and equations, functions, geometry, and statistics and probability.

Having built a strong foundation in K-5, students are prepared for robust learning in geometry, algebra, and probability and statistics in middle school.

The middle school standards provide a coherent and rich preparation for high school mathematics.
