|State Board of Education Adopts 2009 High School Math Content Standards|
|The Oregon State Board of Education adopted the 2009 High School Mathematics Academic Content Standards at their June meeting. The new high school mathematics standards include three disciplines of mathematics - Algebra, Geometry and Measurement, and Statistics and Probability. Within each strand are two to three core standards. These core standards provide the major concepts and processes for teaching and learning across the grades. Beneath each of these core standards are from three to eight content standards which provide the details necessary for curriculum and assessment.
In addition, the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) has created advanced knowledge and skills for high school mathematics organized by five disciplines: algebra, trigonometry, discrete mathematics, statistics, and calculus. These advanced knowledge and skills can help provide the framework around which advanced high school mathematics courses may be designed. They are intended to provide students with more options for advanced course work and to assist teachers in planning differentiated instruction. The Advanced Knowledge and Skills for High School Mathematics are not part of the "official" high school mathematics standards and are not assessed on the Oregon Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (OAKS).
The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) is now working on guidance documents to support these new standards. The items will include:
