What Is College- and Career-Ready Math?

Publication November 2014

Education reform policy discussions are increasingly dominated by two themes: college and career readiness and the Common Core State Standards.  The Common Core standards were designed to address the level of abilities students should reach prior to receiving their high school diploma in order to be college and career ready. Forty-five states and three territories have adopted these standards into their curriculum. In this paper, the authors sought to determine the mathematics knowledge and skills students need to be college and career ready.
