Mathematics

The State Board of Education has adopted Ohio's New Learning Standards in Mathematics. The Kindergarten - Grade 12 standards will be in full use in Ohio classrooms by 2014-2015, when tests matched to the standards are in place.

Calculator Guidance for Ohio's State Tests

These documents provide guidance for calculator usage on Ohio’s State Mathematics Tests for the 2014 – 2015 school year. This guidance applies to the level of the test and not the grade level of the student taking the test. For example, a middle school student taking an Algebra I or Geometry test is permitted to use the allowable calculator for high school for each of these tests.

 

Model Curricula

These mathematics model curricula were written by Ohio educators to support the implementation of Ohio's New Learning Standards in Mathematics. In March 2011 the State Board of Education adopted model curricula to match the standards. This document will grow and change over time.

In October 2013, Career Connections strategies were added to the teaching strategies in the model curricula.

Pursuant to ORC 3301.079 (B) (3) and 3313.60, it is the responsibility of Ohio's local boards of education to vet and approve curriculum and educational materials for use in the public schools within their district. The use of any materials posted or linked to on the Ohio Department of Education website, including materials within the Common Core State Standards or Appendices or any state model curricula or other educational resource material, is entirely up to the discretion of each local board of education.
