ABSTRACT
Mathematics teachers must expect reasonably high standards of achievement from pupils. Too frequently, pupils attain at a substandard level and more optimal achievement is necessary. Thus, pupils should have self esteem needs met in the school and classroom setting. Thus, learners feel that mathematics is worthwhile and effort must be put forth to accomplish and grow to achieve objectives. With the common core objectives and tests, teachers need to align the subject matter taught with the proposed ends of instruction. Each pupil needs to have help, as necessary, from the teacher as well as from peers to achieve objectives, in the common core. A collaborative environment must be in the offing so that pupils feel confident of trust and empathy being in the offing (Ediger and Rao, 2011).
