Welcome to the Math 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 (OSDE) 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.


In the summer of 2016, the OSDE hired three educators for every grade level from Pre-Kindergarten through Algebra 2. These educators have put in an awful lot of hard work analyzing the standards and objectives, providing guidance for learning progressions, unit design, and instructional task selection. For each and every objective in the new OAS-M, the OKMath Framework provides a rephrasing of the objective, referred to as "in a nutshell." This is followed by related Teacher Actions and Student Actions, inspired by NCTM's Effective Teaching Practices and the OAS-M Mathematical Actions and Processes, respectively. Beyond helping teachers understand what students and teachers are doing when learning the standards, each objective also has a list of Key Understandings and Common Misconceptions.

Learn About the Framework Writers 

The Math Framework Writers are all Oklahoma educators who were selected from a large pool of applicants. The process for selection included responding to open-ended questions about their experience with the content and processes of the new Oklahoma Academic Standards for Mathematics and a sample lesson with an accompanying narrative. 


The arduous process of selecting the very best three educators led us to have a brilliant group of teachers with a diverse range of experiences and expertise.

Other Key Resources from the OSDE

With the new Oklahoma Academic Standards for Mathematics recently adopted and on schedule to be assessed beginning in the 2016-2017 school year, it has been the priority of the Oklahoma State Department of Education to ensure all teachers across Oklahoma are supported as they work to make sense of the standards and implement them with fidelity. In a matter of just a few months, we have worked to lead an aggressively-paced transition effort that has resulted in At-A-Glance documents that address critical gaps that must be taught this school year, Crosswalk documents that have been developed by the Central and Northeastern Math Consortiumblueprints, a calculator policy, and even a short course that introduces the new standards. 


All resources developed by the OSDE are updated and linked to form the new OKMath Toolkit available at http://bit.ly/okmathtoolkit.
