Public Comment

- Minnesota students will have to be a lot more math-savvy than they were in the past. Low state math test scores announced Wednesday show that there's already a big gulf between what the state expects of students and what they can deliver. And state math expectations are only going to get tougher. This year's fourth-graders are subject to new state requirements that they take Algebra I by the end of eighth grade and Algebra II by the end of high school.

The Minnesota K-12 Academic Standards in Mathematics define a common foundation of mathematics to be learned by all students. They articulate concepts in reasoning; number sense, computation and operations; patterns, functions and algebra; data analysis, statistics and probability; and spatial sense, geometry and measurement. Three high school credits that encompass the content contained in the mathematics standards for grades 9-11are required for graduation.

The mathematics standards are available below in Word and PDF formats. Please read the link descriptions for the format that best fits your needs. An Excel version of the Mathematics standards is available by contacting MDE.
