The State Board of Education has adopted Ohio's 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.
Ohio's Learning Standards
Additional Resources for Diverse Learners
These mathematics model curricula were written by Ohio educators to support the implementation of Ohio's 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.
Calculator Guidance for the 2015-2016 Ohio State Tests
Calculators are important instructional tools that are allowable - but not required - for students to use while taking state tests. For students taking the computer-based tests, a calculator will be provided in the technology platform for the test. Students may use handheld calculators for either the computer-based or paper-based test formats and schools may permit them to bring their own handheld devices for test purposes.
