Looking through the common core standards I found multiple strands that encompass the material taught in UCSMP text.

Algebra

Arithmetic with polynomials and Rational function

Functions

Linear, Quadratic and Exponential functions

Trigonometric Functions

Interpreting Functions

Statistics and Probability

Conditional Probability and rules of probability

Using probability to make descions

These are the strands of standards that are present in the advanced algebra text. I have choose to use this text as I feel it deserves the most attention with the Michigan Graduation Requirement of four years of math including advanced algebra or algebra 2.
