Resources: Ohio's New Learning Standards: K-12 Mathematics

The documents and aids below provide almost everything educators need to understand and implement Ohio's New Learning Standards in Mathematics. 

Implementation Tools

Click on the links below to open.

Alignment Toolkit Phase 1: Gap Analysis

These tools allow educators to examine the standards to determine the degree to which their curriculum addresses the concepts and skills found in them, as well as the  cognitive levels required.

Alignment Toolkit Phase 2: Revisions of District Curriculum

These tools create a framework from the standards and model curriculum for planning units around big ideas/concepts; sequencing units to the school year; intradisciplinary and interdisciplinary connections; diverse learner considerations; technology integration; formative, summative and performance-based assessment practices; and resources. 

Additional Resources

Standards Implementation (video series) - Contained on this site are a series of videos that explain the math standards in far greater depth.

Core Math Tools - Core Math Tools consists of interactive software tools for algebra and functions, geometry and trigonometry, and statistics and probability. The tools are suitable for use with any high school mathematics curriculum and compatible with the Ohio's New Learning Standards for Mathematics in terms of content and mathematical practices. To access all features, Java is required.

Illustrative Mathematics - Illustrative Mathematics provides guidance by illustrating the range and types of mathematical work that students should experience in a faithful implementation of Ohio's New Learning Standards in Mathematics, and by publishing other tools that support implementation of the standards.

Inside Mathematics - Inside Mathematics is a professional resource where educators can find lesson ideas aligned to Ohio's New Learning Standards in Mathematics. This site includes resources like classroom videos and exemplary lessons. Teachers interested in the lessons can use the Task and Student Work Analysis document as a guideline for how to complete a chosen task. Other ideas for tasks or lessons are provided on the Correlation of Inside Mathematics to the CCSS document. To find a copy of the lesson activities go to and search by task name.

Learning Progressions - Narrative documents describing the typical learning progression of a topic, informed by both research on children’s cognitive development and the logical structure of mathematics.

National Library of Virtual Manipulatives - The National Library of Virtual Manipulatives contains manipulatives and concept tutorials across the grade bands.

Ohio Math on LinkedIn - To promote statewide dialogue the Ohio Department of Education started Ohio Math, a discussion forum on LinkedIn that is open to educators on all levels across the state. The forum encourages educators to promote their achievements, voice concerns, share ideas and collaborate with each other. To join in the discussion participants are required to open a free LinkedIn account. Once you have a LinkedIn account, search Ohio Math.
