Common Core State Standards for Math
1) Explain the meaning of a problem and look for entry points to its solution.
2) Make sense of quantities and their relationships in problem situations.
3) Interpret and use stated assumptions, definitions, and previously established results in constructing arguments.
4) Apply the mathematics learned to solve problems arising in everyday life, society, and the workplace.
5) Consider the available tools when solving a mathematical problem.
6) Communicate precisely to others through the use of mathematical explanations and definitions.
7) Examine mathematical problems to discern a pattern or structure.
8) Determine if calculations are repeated, and look both for general methods and for shortcuts.

Common Core State Standards for Reading
1) Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of science and technical texts, attending to important distinctions the author makes and to any gaps or inconsistencies in the accounts.
2) Determine the central ideas or conclusions of a text; summarize complex concepts, processes, or information presented in a text by paraphrasing them in simpler but still accurate terms.
3) Follow precisely a complex multistep procedure when carrying out experiments, taking measurements, or performing technical tasks; analyze the specific results based on explanations in the text.
4) Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 11-12 texts and topics.
5) Analyze how the text structures information or ideas into categories or hierarchies, demonstrating understanding of the information or ideas.
6) Analyze the author’s purpose in providing an explanation, describing a procedure, or discussing an experiment in a text, identifying important issues that remain unresolved.
7) Integrate and evaluate multiple sources of information presented in diverse formats and media (e.g., quantitative data, video, multimedia) in order to address a question or solve a problem.
8) Evaluate the hypotheses, data, analysis, and conclusions in a science or technical text, verifying the data when possible and corroborating or challenging conclusions with other sources of information.
9) Synthesize information from a range of sources (e.g., tests, experiments, simulations) into a coherent understanding of a process, phenomenon, or concept, resolving conflicting information when possible.
10) Read and comprehend science/technical texts in grades 11-CCR (college career readiness) text complexity band independently and proficiently.
