I don't know about you, but that is ALL we are talking about at PDs lately. I feel like the change is a good thing BUT it is a little vague. Today we went through our math materials (we use Everyday Math) and where is patterning? I mean, it has to be in there right? RIGHT? What about graphing? Or is it really gone? I am happy to see estimating and coins GONE but somethings are so important to beginning math thinkers. Am I missing it? What are your feelings about CCSS?
