Course Titles and Descriptions
Course descriptions provide brief descriptions of kindergarten, elementary, middle level and high school curricular areas. These descriptions will assist schools in communicating, in a broad context, the content of programs and courses. Code numbers listed before each program/course title and description are to be used for Indiana Department of Education data reporting.
The table below provides access to the 2014-15 Course Titles and Descriptions for High School, Middle School and Elementary Curricular Areas. State Approved Course Titles and Descriptions for 2011-14 are located in the Archived section at the bottom of this page.

Quantitative Reasoning Courses
In November 2011, the State Board of Education approved the inclusion of a "Quantitative Reasoning" requirement to all diploma types, among other changes. 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 deepens a student's understanding of high school mathematics standards.
