Organization of the New Standards

There are still five strands; two former ones have been combined and one new one has been added:

  • Mathematical Processes – New Strand*
  • Number and Operation – Content Strand
  • Algebra– Content Strand
  • Geometry and Measurement– Content Strand
  • Data Analysis, Probability, Statistics– Content Strand

Each Strand is composed of three major parts:

  • Grade Level Expectations or Course Level Expectations
  • Checks for Understanding
  • State Performance Indicators

New Strand*: The Grade Level Expectations for the Mathematical Processes Strand are the same for grade bands K-8 and for 9-12. The Checks for Understanding and the SPIs differ at each grade/course level.
