Summary: Preservice Secondary Mathematics Teachers (PSMTs) were surveyed to identify if they could connect earlysecondary mathematics content (Grades 79) in the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) with mathematics content studied in content courses for certification in secondary teacher preparation programs. Respondents were asked to identify collegelevel mathematics courses they had taken in their preparation programs that specifically addressed connections to earlysecondary school mathematics content in the CCSSM. The analysis of the results specifically focuses on PSMTs' inability to selfidentify connections between this CCSSM content and collegelevel mathematics coursework. In this study, the goal that content coursework for teachers emphasize visible connections between the content PSMTs will teach and mathematics coursework in preservice preparation programs was seemingly not achieved.
