The Georgia Performance Standards Mathematics curriculum is designed to achieve a balance among concepts, skills, and problem solving. The curriculum stresses rigorous concept development, presents realistic and relevant tasks, and maintains a strong emphasis on computational and procedural skills. At all grades, the curriculum encourages students to reason mathematically, to evaluate mathematical arguments both formally and informally, to use the language of mathematics to communicate ideas and information precisely, and to make connections among mathematical topics and to other disciplines.
In 2010, the Georgia State School Board of Education adopted a new set of standards known as CCGPS for Mathematics to be implemented in kindergarten through grade nine in school year 2012-2013. The CCGPS for Mathematics was finalized after multiple rounds of development and feedback from states and national organizations. Representatives from Georgia provided feedback at each round. The Georgia Performance Standards (GPS) Mathematics curriculum was one of the state curricula used to inform the creation of the CCGPS for Mathematics. The rigor and relevance, as well as the balance of skills, concepts, and problem solving, found in GPS mathematics is mirrored in the CCGPS.
The CCGPS, like the GPS, is evidence and/or research based, vertically aligned, and internationally benchmarked so that all students are prepared to succeed in our global economy and society. Although some content may be in different grade levels, all of the standards addressed in the CCGPS are also addressed in GPS mathematics. Most importantly, our work with GPS has prepared Georgia for the implementation of the CCGPS. It is appropriate that the name given to Georgia's CCGPS Mathematics reflect the influence of the GPS in the teaching and learning of mathematics. Therefore, Georgia's Mathematics curriculum is called CCGPS.
