Mathematics is one of humanity’s greatest achievements. The field of mathematics continues to grow at a rapid rate, spreading into new fields and creating new technologies and jobs. Students today require an education in mathematics that goes far beyond what was needed in the past to maximize their opportunities. 

The Mathematics offices at OSPI provide technical assistance for the learning standards and oversee the testing of the standards required by Washington’s legislature.

Learning Standards
The state’s K-12 Mathematics Learning Standards have been revised by dozens of educators and mathematicians from across the state and the nation. The standards describe what students should know and be able to do at each grade level. 

Assessments are designed to help schools, districts, parents, and students determine the level of proficiency of a student’s understanding of the mathematics learning standards.

Graduation Requirements
All public high school students are required to meet statewide graduation requirements in order to earn a diploma. Specific graduation requirements exist for mathematics now and will change for the class of 2013 and beyond.

Mathematics Systems Improvement Framework
The Mathematics Systems Improvement Framework provides school districts with actionable steps and guidance around which a comprehensive K-12 mathematics system can be built. 

OSPI Available Moodle Courses
There are two Washington State Mathematics Supports available on Moodle. One support is for the Measurements of Student Progress and the second for end-of-course exams. These supports are a place for educators to share resources and collaborate as they prepare students for Washington State assessments. Please create a free account and login to access the supports.

What's New

As you know, Washington State has been transitioning to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSS-M). Therefore, we will no longer provide Lessons Learned or Updates documents for Washington State Standards. More information on CCSS-M.
