In November 2011, the State Board of Education passed graduation requirements that affect incoming freshmen beginning in 2012-2013, including requirements for quantitative reasoning (applied mathematics) courses.

  • For the Core 40, Academic Honors (AHD), and Technical Honors (THD) diplomas, students must take a mathematics course or a quantitative reasoning (applied mathematics) course each year they are enrolled in high school. 511 IAC 6-7.1-6 (c) (4)
  • For the General Diploma, students must earn two credits in a mathematics course or a quantitative reasoning (applied mathematics) course during their junior or senior year. 511 IAC 6-7.1-4 (c) (4)
  • A quantitative reasoning (applied mathematics) 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 provides a list of current courses that have been determined to meet the criteria for quantitative reasoning (applied mathematics) courses.
