Arizona's Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month First in Math Zip Code Challenge
(Adopted December 2016)
The Arizona Mathematics Standards define the knowledge, understanding, and skills that need to be taught and learned so all students are ready to succeed in creditbearing, collegeentry courses, and/or in the workplace. The Arizona Mathematics Standards are the foundation to guide the construction and evaluation of mathematics programs in Arizona K12 schools and the broader Arizona community. These standards were adopted by the Arizona State Board of Education in December of 2016.

The Arizona Mathematics Progression Documents are a great place to start with curriculum mapping and scope and sequence. Please also reference the major and supporting content emphasis documents. These documents provide information that will assist you in how much instructional time you should spend on different clusters of math content and each grade or in each high school course.
Even though the Arizona Mathematics Standards have been reviewed and revised in 2016, it is suggested that you still utilized Common Core math support documents to assist with planning, curriculum design and professional development. Please make sure that you are analyzing the Arizona Mathematics Standards for alignment to the Common Core Math Standards. There are some differences between the Common Core and the Arizona Mathematics Standards. But support materials are still beneficial in planning and in getting to know the content standards.
Here are additional reliable and valid progression documents to assist your planning.
Progression Documents for the Common Core Math Standards The Common Core State Standards in mathematics were built on progressions: narrative documents describing the progression of a topic across a number of grade levels informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics. These documents were spliced together and then sliced into gradelevel standards. Progression documents can explain why standards are sequenced the way they are, point out cognitive difficulties and pedagogical solutions, and give more detail on particularly tricky areas of the mathematics. Progression documents should be useful in teacher preparation and professional development, organizing curriculum, and writing textbooks. Progressions documents also provide a transmission mechanism between mathematics education research and standards. Research about learning progressions produces knowledge that can be transmitted through the progressions document to the standards revision process; questions and demands on standards writing can be transmitted back the other way into research questions.

House Bill 2477
(adopted during the Fiftythird Legislature Second Regular Session, 2018)
Notify Parents if students were not proficient on the statewide assessment for Math.
HB 2477 requires LEAs to provide parents with written notice that includes:
1. What the student's mathematics deficiencies were on the statewide Math exam and;
2. How those deficiencies are being addressed through services provided to the student which could include supplemental instruction and any supporting programs designed to address the student’s specific mathematics deficiencies. LEAs are required to provide notice to parents regarding the Spring statewide assessment results by the first half of the second quarter of this school year if students scored in the minimally proficient or partially proficient range on statewide Math assessment. LEA’s can identify how below mastery on the scoring category is being addressed through Tier 1 (first instruction), Tier 2 (supplemental instruction), and possibly through supporting programs which could include but is not limited to after school tutoring.
The ADE Assessment and K12 Standards Team have created a sample letter that you can customize with your school letterhead and sitespecific supplemental instruction and/or supporting programs specific to the individual student. Understanding in Mathematics when a student understands a mathematical concept, they move fluidly between the concrete and abstract. There is evidence they are able to make sense of and justify mathematical connections. Evidence of understanding includes connections among:
♦Verbal or written reasoning ♦Pictorial representations ♦Realworld application ♦Procedures/Computation

The Arizona Mathematics Standards are:
 Focused in coherent progressions across grades K12
 Aligned with college and workforce expectations.
 Inclusive of rigorous content and applications of knowledge through higherorder thinking.
 Research and evidencebased.

The Arizona Department of Education K12 Standards Section is providing planning guidance regarding the major and supporting clusters found within the Arizona Mathematics Standards, Adopted 2016. The Math Workgroup has made changes to the content emphasis documents (below) based on what we have learned since 2010. Please consider the following designations when planning an instructional scope for the school year. The ADE is suggesting instructional time encompass 70% for Major Clusters at each grade level/course.
Mathematics Content Emphasis Documents 

6Algebra 2 AZ Mathematics Progression Documents
Thank you to the East Valley Mathematics Leaders Group and the Peoria District Math Team for completing the Arizona K5 Mathematics Progression Documents. The East Valley Math Leaders met throughout the 20182019 year to complete the work on the 6Algebra 2 progression documents.
The Arizona 6Algebra 2 Progression Documents are in first draft! These progressions are living documents and will be updated when feedback from the field has been reviewed and agreed upon. The Arizona 6Algebra 2 progression documents are one way to look at the progression of standards across grade levels and courses. The specific pathway that was utilized in these progressions is a progression around and through Number sense. Number Sense is the “big idea” across all the progressions. Number Sense then has pathways into Statistics, Expressions and Equations and Proportional Reasoning. Proportional Reasoning is giant and has pathways into Functions, Probability and Congruence/Similarity.
Please open the Progression document then click the link on each of the progressions to see how content progresses from 6th grade all the way through to Algebra 2.

Additional Math Resources
Achieve the Core has a Coherence Map for mathematics from kindergarten through Algebra 2. Standards relate to one another, both within and across grades. The Coherence Map is an interactive website that illustrates the coherent structure of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics K–High School. This site provides one representation of how the standards are connected to each other and is derived from this wiring diagram. A great video is linked to the site that illustrates the importance of coherence in mathematics. The Coherence Map shows the connections between common core state standards for mathematics.
ADE Partners with the CRR 

ADE has officially partnered with the Center for Recruitment and Retention of Mathematics Teachers (the CRR) until August 31st, 2024. Because of this partnership, all Arizona Educators are able to participate in free math professional learning opportunities through the CRR. Use this link to register for a session today!

The development of the fourth credit guidance and standards began in January 2017 under the guidance of the Arizona Department of Education. A statewide committee of high school mathematics teachers, district Mathematics Specialists and Professors and Mathematicians from Institutes of Higher Education reviewed research and other state standards to create the general guidance and standards related to fourthcredit mathematics. The Quantitative Reasoning and Precalculus Standards are also aligned to the high school Plus Standards. Standards outline what a student needs to know, understand, and be able to do by the end of each grade. Standards build across grade levels in a progression of increasing understanding and through a range of cognitive demand levels. Standards are adopted at the state level by the State Board of Education (A.R.S. §§15701 and 15701.01). Arizona retains authority to approve and modify academic standards; there is no federal law requiring the adoption of specific standards. The fourthcredit standards for Quantitative Reasoning and Precalculus are not board adopted since fourth credit mathematics courses are a local control decision.
These documents represent guidance only for schools and districts. It is a local control decision what courses are offered in a fourcredit mathematics pathway.
