The Oregon Focus on Math ©2008 series was written to address the 2006 Curriculum
Focal Points (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics). The 2007 Oregon Core
Standards were developed from those Focal Points. Since that time most states, including
Oregon, have adopted the Common Core State Standards of Mathematics (CCSSM). The
Oregon Focus on Math series addresses a majority of these standards at the correct
grade level, but there are additional standards that are not covered in our series
at each grade level that will need to be addressed.
The OFOM author team has written supplemental lessons that will fill the gaps of
the series in order for the Common Core Math Content Standards to be fully addressed.
These lessons will be printed in Companion Texts, one per Stage. Each CCSSM Companion
Text will also have a Resource Binder and Teacher's Edition to support the materials.
These additional resources will be similar in style and substance to the OFOM resources
teachers are currently using.
Using the links below, you will find the alignment of the Oregon Focus on Math ©2008
series to the Common Core State Standards as well as Table of Contents for each
Stage’s Companion Text. These documents include a scope and sequence the author
team recommends in order to address grade-level CCSSM content standards. Please
note that Oregon students will be assessed on 2007 Oregon Standards through 2014,
which may affect your transition plans to the Common Core.
Due to the way the Companion Text will be used in instruction, the OFOM author team
is recommending that schools purchase classroom sets of the CCSSM Companion Texts
as opposed to having texts for each student. We are offering a discount for schools
pre-ordering prior to May 15, 2012. Student texts and supplemental materials will
be available July 2012. Use the link below to access an order form for the materials.
