Posted: Mon, 03/19/2012 - 11:34am Updated: Wed, 06/25/2014 - 9:05am

In November 2011, the State Board of Education passed new graduation requirements that affect incoming freshman in 2012-13.

  • For the Core 40, Academic Honors (AHD), and Technical Honors (THD) diplomas, students must take a mathematics course or a quantitative reasoning course each year they are enrolled in high school.
  • For the General Diploma, students must earn two credits in a mathematics course or a quantitative reasoning course during their junior or senior year.
  • A quantitative reasoning course is a high school course that "advances a student's ability to apply mathematics in real world situations and contexts" and that "deepens a student's understanding of high school mathematics standards."
  • The Indiana Department of Education will provide an annual review to determine the high school courses that meet these criteria.
  • The tables below provide a list of courses that have been determined to meet the criteria for quantitative reasoning courses for 2013-2014 and 2014-2015.
