Welcome to the Secondary Math! This is the starting place for information related to the Secondary Mathematics Education of Oklahoma students. With so many changes in education happening, it is vital to our success as educators to be professionally engaged. To this end, the Oklahoma State Department of Education is dedicated to ensuring OKMath teachers are Connected, Empowered, and Focused.

Oklahoma Academic Standards and Framework

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 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. 

As a way to provide guidance and resources to support standards implementation, the Oklahoma Math Frameworks page was created. On this site, educators analyzed the standards and objectives, created suggested learning progressions, designed optional units, and adapted/created sample instructional tasks.

Analyze the OAS Objectives: 

As a part of the OKMath Frameworks Pages, educators have analyzed and interpreted each OAS-M objective. By clicking the links below, you will be directed to the Objective Analysis Page for your grade level. From there, click on each objective to see teacher actions, student actions, key understandings, and potential misconceptions.

July 2019- Announcing NEW Guidance for Intermediate Algebra, Trigonometry, and Precalculus.

During the 2018-19 academic year, teachers across Oklahoma identified the need for guidance in the areas of Intermediate Algebra (4418), Trigonometry (4750), and Precalculus (4611). Two groups of educators were formed with the task of creating competencies for these subjects. Competencies provide a pathway for teachers who are looking to guide their students to the next mathematical level.

The competency committee members looked at existing competencies within and outside of our state, Oklahoma high school and college course syllabi, vertical alignment documents, our Oklahoma Academic Standards for Mathematics, and the NCTM Essential Standards for High School Mathematics to determine which essential skills should be included in our Oklahoma competencies. What has resulted is guidance for Intermediate Algebra, Precalculus, and Trigonometry that will help our students be college and career ready.

Oklahoma Higher Education professors, Curriculum Coordinators, and teachers of Precalculus, Trigonometry, and Intermediate Algebra have had a chance to review previous drafts. We invite you to use this guidance during the 2019-2020 academic year and provide your feedback (form linked on the competency documents). We value your input!

April 2017 - Course Code Guidance

New guidance for high school course offerings was announced in April 2017. Download the Guidance here. An introductory virtual meeting was held on April 28, 2017, to discuss the changes and provide clarifications. View those meeting notes here and listen to the meeting recording here. View the full Course Code list for all subjects here

January 2017 - Statistics & Probability 

Working with a team of Oklahoma educators, the Oklahoma State Department of Education has developed new Statistics and Probability competencies that have been approved by Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education as eligible for college entrance and Oklahoma's Promise. Geometry and Algebra 2 are pre-requisites for the course and the teacher must be Advanced Certified to offer the course. Download the competencies for Statistics and Probability (4740).

December 2016 - College Career Math Ready

SREB's Colleg Career Math Ready course (4550) helps ensure high school seniors get the support they need to be ready for entry-level, credit-bearing coursework. It's FREE too! Join our community as we discuss what implementation looks like for the 2016-2017 school year! Learn more about the College Career Math Ready course at
