In February, a conference was held at the University of Illinois at Chicago on the Common Core State Standards. Initially planned for 150-200 attendees, the conference capped at 900 attendees with a long waiting list.
CME Project lead author Al Cuoco gave a talk about the curriculum and its connections to the Common Core, referencing both the Standards for Mathematical Practice and Standards for Mathematical Content. Slides are available at
Slides, videos, and photos of all speakers are available at
Of particular interest to me was the talk by Phil Daro, one of the three lead authors of the standards, who led off the conference with a lot of great information about CCSS and its principles.
