Standards: Mathematics

(Adopted December 2016)

What the Arizona Mathematics Standards Are
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 credit-bearing, college-entry courses and/or in the workplace. The Arizona Mathematics Standards are the foundation to guide the construction and evaluation of mathematics programs in Arizona K-12 schools and the broader Arizona community. These standards were adopted by the Arizona State Board of Education in December of 2016.
The Arizona Mathematics Standards are:
Focused in coherent progressions across grades K-12
Aligned with college and workforce expectations.
Inclusive of rigorous content and applications of knowledge through higher-order thinking.
Research and evidence based.

Evidence of understanding includes connections among:
