Math Standards

Component ID: #ti1841093017

The U.S. Census Bureau’s Statistics in Schools (SIS) activities are based on relevant education standards and guidelines that outline the foundational knowledge and skills students should have at certain levels. The SIS activities — which are designed to supplement or guide, not replace, existing curricula — help develop these skills and knowledge.

Not all educators use the same standards. For this reason, many of the activities address multiple standards and guidelines.

Standards and Guildelines

MATHEMATICS
Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and for Mathematical Practice
  • SIS activities reflect both the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and the Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice.
  • The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics are for grades K-12. Standards for kindergarten through eighth grade are organized by grade level; standards for grades nine through 12 are organized by topic, such as statistics and probability.
  • The eight Common Core State Standards for Mathematical Practice are not tied to specific grade levels or topics. These practice standards represent various “habits of mind” that mathematics educators should seek to develop in their students. The practices rest on “processes and proficiencies” with long-standing importance in mathematics education.


National Council of Teachers of Mathematics’ Principles and Standards for School Mathematics
  • Published in 2000, these principles and standards address the essential components of a high-quality school mathematics program. They call for all students to have a common foundation of mathematics, outlined in the document.
  • The Principles and Standards for School Mathematics, designed for all students from prekindergarten through grade 12, represent the first set of rigorous standards for college and career readiness in the 21st century


MATHEMATICS AND STATISTICS
American Statistical Association’s Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education
  • Published in 2007 by the American Statistical Association, the Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education (GAISE) represent a framework for statistics education in prekindergarten through 12th grade. GAISE was developed to complement the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics’ Principles and Standards for School Mathematics.
  • GAISE provides a model for teaching statistics that includes three developmental levels (A, B, and C) organized by four key components: formulating questions, collecting data, analyzing data, and interpreting results.
