Common Core: There's an app for that

The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction is asking teachers to check out the new Common Core Standards app available at iTunes.

Here is a description of the app:

View the Common Core State Standards in one convenient FREE app! A great reference for students, parents, and teachers to easily read and understand the core standards. Quickly find standards by subject, grade, and subject category (domain/cluster). This app includes Math standards K-12 and Language Arts standards K-12. Math standards include both traditional and integrated pathways (as outlined in Appendix A of the common core) and synthesizes Language Arts standards with the Corresponding College and Career Readiness Standards (CCR’s).

And here is what it looks like:

This gives you a pretty good sense of the amount of money that the Common Core advocates are willing to spend on their effort.
