Wisconsin - Content Standards: Mathematics

Policy Type: 
Year Adopted: 

On June 2, 2010, Wisconsin formally adopted the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics.


The Standards for Mathematical Content describe the sequence of important mathematics content that students learn. They are a combination of procedures and understandings. These content standards are organized around domains and clusters which are specified by grade level, kindergarten through grade 8, and by conceptual category at high school. The domains at all levels are based on research-based learning progressions detailing what is known about students’ mathematical knowledge, skill, and understanding. The progressions build from grade to grade and topic to topic, providing K-12 focus and coherence. Other important cross-grade themes that should be noted and investigated are concepts such as the role of units and unitizing, the properties of operations across arithmetic and algebra, operations and the problems they solve, transformational geometry, reasoning and sense-making, and modeling of and with mathematics.
