Standards covered by the Base Curriculum

As we improve the Base Curriculum, we are aligning it to:

  • Common Core State Standards (Math and English)
  • Next Generation Science Standards (Science)
  • California History Standards
  • AP Standards (AP Courses in the Base Curriculum)

The curriculum in the Base Curriculum is already associated with standards.

This spreadsheet makes it easier to map all Projects, Math Units, and Focus Areas to standards.  Use the filters to map curriculum objects to standards and also standards to curriculum objects.
