CCSS Tasks Embedding Financial Literacy
Tasks were developed by secondary mathematics and CTE teachers across Washington from both urban and rural areas. These teachers have incorporated financial literacy in their classroom and have received training on the Common Core State Standards and the Jump$tart Financial Literacy standards. Tasks were validated by content experts in the CCSS in mathematics. The tasks demonstrate how financial literacy standards can be incorporated within mathematics classrooms that are implementing the standards.
Standards Professional Development
The OSPI Mathematics office encourages teachers to use these materials for standards-based instruction. Most documents are available in Word format for download and editing.
Early Math Brochure
Children naturally love numbers. They learn about numbers through their daily play in their environment. The more they explore with counting, numbers, and shapes the more prepared they will be for kindergarten.
