The Mathematics Common Core State Standards focus on preparation for careers and college and include STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) standards for students planning careers in science, technology, engineering, and/or mathematics. In addition, students at all levels should develop expertise in eight Standards for Mathematical Practice.

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
