Gr. 6-12 Mathematics Standards
The Minnesota Academic Standards in Mathematics set the expectations for achievement in mathematics for K-12 students in Minnesota. This document is grounded in the belief that all students can and should be mathematically proficient. All students should learn important mathematical concepts, skills, and relationships with understanding. The standards presented here describe a connected body of mathematical knowledge that is acquired through the processes of problem solving, reasoning and proof, communication, connections, and representation. The standards are placed at the grade level where mastery is expected with the recognition that intentional experiences at earlier grades are required to facilitate learning and mastery for other grade levels.The Minnesota Academic Standards in Mathematics are organized by grade level into four content strands: 1) Number and Operation, 2) Algebra, 3) Geometry and Measurement, and 4) Data Analysis and Probability. Each strand has one or more standards.(Source: Minnesota Department of Education, Mathematics Academic Standards)Edina Public Schools has adopted Envision 2.0 and Envision A|G|A at the secondary level. The new materials will be phased in over 3 years beginning in the fall of 2018-19. The adoption is the result of a district wide Design Committee recommendation to purchase resources that align with the Minnesota Math Standards and reflect best practices in student learning. These new resources will allow for a deep conceptual understanding through mathematical problem based learning. The program has a wealth of resources to help teachers personalize learning for their students.
