Kentucky Academic Standards for Mathematics
The Kentucky Academic Standards (KAS) for Mathematics put forth expectations to ensure student proficiency in mathematics, enabling graduates to be empowered and equipped with the knowledge and skills to be successful in a complex and competitive world. The standards emphasize the importance of the mathematical practices; whereby, equipping students to reason and problem solve. The standards also emphasize procedural skill and fluency, building from conceptual understandings to application and modeling with mathematics, in order to solve real world problems.
Ensuring Equity and Access with the KAS for Mathematics
In order to create, support and sustain a culture of equity and access across Kentucky, teachers must ensure the diverse needs of all learners are met. Educational objectives must take into consideration students' backgrounds, experiences, cultural perspectives, traditions and knowledge. Acknowledging and addressing factors that contribute to different outcomes among students are critical to ensuring all students routinely have opportunities to experience high-quality mathematics instruction, learn challenging mathematics content and receive the necessary support to be successful. Addressing equity and access includes both ensuring all students attain mathematics proficiency and achieving an equitable percentage of all students attaining the highest levels of mathematics achievement (Adapted from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Equity and Access Position, 2018).
