Mapping Out the Math

A new Web site takes a stab at spelling out the essential grade-by-grade math standards that students need from kindergarten through high school.

Not only that, the site provides model course sequences, model classroom activities, and even sample test questions for math-oriented educators who want to put those standards into practice.

It's the product of a partnership between Achieve, a Washington organization that advocates higher academic standards, and the Charles A. Dana Center, an education research hub at the University of Texas at Austin.

The new site builds on math benchmarks Achieve created for the American Diploma Project, aimed at describing the skills students need for college and the workplace. The site back-tracks and sets expectations through early grades, essentially showing what it takes to get to a level of high school preparation.
