In April of 2014, the Indiana State Board of Education approved the adoption of new standards for Mathematics. The 2014 Indiana Academic Standards for Mathematics are the result of a process designed to identify, evaluate, synthesize, and create the most high-quality, rigorous standards for Indiana students. The standards are designed to ensure that Indiana students are prepared to enter and successfully complete postsecondary education, and that they are prepared for long-term, economically-viable career opportunities.
The Indiana Academic Standards for Mathematics demonstrate what students should know and be able to do in the areas of K-8 Mathematics; Algebra I, II, and Geometry; and higher-level high school Mathematics courses. Instruction in Mathematics provides vital content and skills for lifelong learning and problem solving in our increasingly complex technological world and engages students in the essential thinking skills and processes used across subject areas.
This means that students who successfully master these objectives for what they should know and be able to do in Mathematics disciplines by the time they graduate from high school will be ready to go directly into the workplace or a postsecondary educational opportunity without the need for remediation.
|Indiana Academic Mathematics Standards|
The 2014 Standards documents specifically list the standards for each grade or course at the high school level. The standards are broken into key areas called strands. The strands are the general areas of mathematics that students need to know and be able to demonstrate mastery.
The Correlation Guides provide guidance and illustrate the correlations between the Indiana Academic Standards (2014) and the previous standards; Indiana Academic Standards (2006) and Indiana Common Core State Standards (2010). Teachers are encouraged to use this document as an instructional support tool.
The Resource Guides highlight academic vocabulary, contain some samples and examples and list potential digital resources for each standard at the grade level or course. The resource guides are not exhaustive and are only for support and possible examples that relate to the standards.
