Mathematics Standards

 Arizona Mathematics Standards Support Materials and Trainings

The Arizona School Board of Education adopted new state standards in 2010 for mathematics for grades K-8 and the first three high school courses (Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, or  Math 1,2,3) including specific standards that could be included in a 4th credit math course (Discrete Mathematics or standards with a + sign.)   Arizona’s Mathematics standards set high expectations for all students to ensure that high school graduates are college and career ready.  These standards represent three fundamental shifts:  focus, coherence, and rigor.

  • Focus:  The standards are focused on fewer topics so that students  have sufficient time to think, practice, and integrate new ideas into their growing knowledge structure.
  • Coherence:  Topics within a grade are connected to support focus, and learning is built on understandings from previous grades.
  • Rigor: The standards set expectations for a balanced approach to pursuing conceptual understanding, procedural skills and fluency, and application and modeling.

Arizona Standards Review Work Updates

There will be a two year implementation timeline with 2017-2018 as a transitional implementation year and 2018-2019 with full implementation.  AzMERIT will be aligned to the new standards starting in 2018-2019. Crosswalk documents will be available by February 2017 to assist with transitional implementation.
