How do I know what changes California made to the national version of the Common Core?
Thanks to Felicity from Los Angeles for the question. The changes are fairly minimal, but it’s important to know what they are. Click here for California’s version of the standards. Standards unique to California are in bold and have “CA” written after the standard. For example, on page 129, two function standards have been added under “Interpreting Functions” making the total number of standards 11 instead of 9.
When California’s version of the Common Core State Standards was first released, the number of changes to national version of the standards was significant. A later revision however greatly reduced the number of changes to their current level.
