Mathematics K–12 Learning Standards

Washington formally adopted the Mathematics and English Language Arts K–12 Learning Standards, also referred to as “the standards". Assessments for these standards will begin in the 2014–15 school year.

Resources to Support the Shifts

Focus
Guidance for K–8 and High School in determining the major areas of focus.

Coherence
The standards were built on progressions: narrative documents describing the progression of learning across a number of grade levels and within a given grade.

  • Progression Documents are informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics.

Standards for Mathematical Practice
The Standards for Mathematical Practice describe the mathematical “habits of mind” that mathematics educators at all levels should seek to develop in their students. These practices rest on important “processes and proficiencies” with longstanding importance in mathematics education.

Transition Plans
While districts could determine their own plan for implementing the standards, a three-year transition plan was provided.

Three-Year Transition Plan for Mathematics

By grade: Kindergarten | 1st Grade | 2nd Grade | 3rd Grade | 4th Grade | 5th Grade | 6th Grade | 7th Grade | 8th Grade | Integrated 1 | Integrated 2
