Ohio's Learning Standards for Mathematics
Ohio educators, many of whom engage daily with Ohio students, drove the process to make improvements to Ohio’s Learning Standards for Mathematics as part of a periodic review. In many cases, the changes reflect instruction already taking place in Ohio’s classrooms. The clarifications in the revised standards will guide districts in modifying, not replacing their existing local curriculum, instructional plans and materials. In addition to the information available now, we will be providing additional resources to help educators learn about, and begin using, the revised standards.
Ohio's Learning Standards for Mathematics (revised 2017)
In 2015-2016, educators statewide and the Ohio Department of Education began an updating process resulting in revised standards that the State Board of Education adopted in February 2017. The 2018-2019 Ohio’s State Tests will measure how students are progressing through the revised 2017 standards.
To assist educators in preparing to use the revised standards, the information below outlines suggested steps for 2017.

Special Note Regarding Accessibility
The Ohio Department of Education is dedicated to making information posted on these webpages accessible, in accordance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. We will be making improvements to portable document format (PDF) documents so that mathematics documents are more accessible. In the meantime, those needing assistance may contact (877) 644-6338.
STEP ONE: Learn about the revised standards
District leaders and teachers
Review the revised standards for your grade level(s) or high school course. When available this spring, review supporting documents and videos.

STEP 2: Develop a local transition plan
- Develop a plan for updating local curriculum to address concepts and skills found in the revised standards, as well as complexity of thought expected. Use gap analysis documents as guides when posted, as well as our model three-year plan.
- Begin updating district curricula based on the standards revisions.
- Determine plan for updating grade-level instructional plans to address concepts and skills found in the revised standards, as well as the complexity of thought expected. Use gap analysis document for your grade or course when posted as a guide.
- Experiment with resources, strategies or classroom examples that address the revisions.
STEP 3: Seek professional development
- Plan professional development for staff about the standards revisions and district curriculum updating efforts.
- Begin participating in related professional development supporting deeper content knowledge, increased rigor and instructional practices.
- Mathematics Resources – This section provides assistance to educators for learning about and preparing to teach with the revised standards.
