Online Grade Level Standards and Resources
The Grade Level Standards & Resources Web site provides quick access to all content standards along with aligned resources to support curriculum development, instructional practices, and assessment of student learning. Choose "Mathematics" from the homepage menu.
Common Core State Standards
Washington adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for mathematics and English language arts in July 2011. Students will continue to be tested on Washington’s 2005 reading and writing standards, and on the 2008 mathematics standards through the 2013-14 school year. Assessments for these newly adopted standards will be piloted in 2013 and operational in the 2014-15 school year.
These standards were created to support the work of early childhood providers who want to prepare their students for kindergarten mathematics. They are fully aligned to the Common Core State Standards and the new Washington State Early Learning and Development Guidelines. Implementation of these standards can occur immediately as they also align with the current Washington State mathematics standards.
K-8 Strand Documents
These documents track the development of important mathematical ideas and skills across grades K-8. The strands are: numbers; operations; geometry/measurement; algebra; data, analysis, statistics, and probability; and processes.
These documents include the 2008 Core/Comprehensive Instructional Review of K-8 and 9-12 instructional materials and their alignment to the newly revised 2008 mathematics standards. Also included is the Supplemental Materials Review Final Report.
Standards Professional Development for Mathematics Teachers
Included are K-8 and 9-12 Standards materials that can be used for standards training. Professional development modules for training on selected content K-12 as a model for professional development in other strands are included.
The purpose of these crosswalk documents is to identify the standards that
are assessed on each end-of-course assessment.
