We have prepared several side-by-side comparisons of the “new” proposed 2019 AL Math Standards (K-8) vs Common Core. Use the links below.
We used highlighting Keys are located either at the top or bottom of each document. It’s easy to see that the “new” standards aren’t new at all. They are the same old failed Common Core standards that hurled Alabama to dead last in the United States’ math rankings.

9-12 Side-by-Side Comparison with Highlighting by J.R. Wilson. The Math Course of Study added a new experimental class called Geometry with Data Analysis that has never been proven or tested that we believe will be a complete disaster. Other than that there are few changes to the Common Core. https://v3xf9c.p3cdn1.secureserver.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/9-12-grade-side-by-side-comparison-AL-2019-math-COS-vs-Common-Core-.pdf
The vote is planned for Dec. 12th 2019. Contact your Alabama State School Board member today and ask them to vote “NO” on the proposed 2019 AL Math Standards. Ask them to adopt proven non Common Core, classic Math Standards to enable all students to succeed.
