With the adoption of the Oklahoma Academic Standards for Mathematics (OAS-M) in the spring of 2016, it has been the priority of the Oklahoma State Department of Education (OSDE) to ensure all Oklahoma educators are provided with the opportunity to deeply understand the instructional shifts needed to fully meet the intent of the standards while also supporting educators with a vision and resources that promote implementing the standards with fidelity.
In the summer of 2016, the OSDE hired three educators for every grade level from Pre-Kindergarten through Algebra 2. These educators have put in an awful lot of hard work analyzing the standards and objectives, providing guidance for learning progressions, unit design, and instructional task selection. For each and every objective in the new OAS-M, the OKMath Framework provides a rephrasing of the objective, referred to as “in a nutshell.” This is followed by related Teacher Actions and Student Actions, inspired by NCTM’s Effective Teaching Practices and the OAS-M Mathematical Actions and Processes, respectively. Beyond helping teachers understand what students and teachers are doing when learning the standards, each objective also has a list of Key Understandings and Common Misconceptions.
