With the new Oklahoma Academic Standards for Mathematics recently adopted and on schedule to be assessed this school year, it has been the priority of the Oklahoma State Department of Education to ensure all teachers across Oklahoma are supported as they work to make sense of the standards and implement them with fidelity. In a matter of just a few months, we have worked to lead an aggressively-paced transition effort that has resulted in At-A-Glance documents that address critical gaps that must be taught this school year, Crosswalk documents that have been developed by the Central and Northeastern Math Consortium, blueprints, a calculator policy, and even a short course that introduces the new standards.
Chief among all the implementation strategies so far is the massive work of the Mathematics Curriculum Framework Project. With 36 remarkable math educators from across Oklahoma, a huge undertaking has resulted in grade-specific support documents that are designed to support teachers as they work to implement the new math standards.
The first draft of the frameworks are provided below. For the next few days (ending August 14), we are asking for your feedback. Please access the files through DropBox and provide constructive criticism and comments that will help the Curriculum Framework Writers understand what you like and what they can do to adjust their work as they work to complete all objectives for all grades by the end of September. Remember, what you’re seeing is just a sneak peek of the early work.
