Supporting the “SHIFTS” of how we teach and learn math

We are preparing students for a world where they will need to be mathematical thinkers, not just doers. This requires a shift in math education to a greater focus on fewer topics, a coherent linking of math topics from grade to grade and an increase in the rigor of our math programs. The following resources provide more information on these shifts.

Common Core State Standards

We believe all students should be on the path to college and career readiness. To map this trajectory, Oregon has adopted the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and English Language Arts in grades K–12.
