Standards and Competencies for Oklahoma Mathematics

Oklahoma Academic Standards for Mathematics (2016):


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!

If you have any questions about the competencies, please email Christine Koerner, Director of Secondary Mathematics, at
