Kansas Curricular Standards for Mathematics.
Kansas State Board of Education, Topeka.
The standards, benchmarks, and indicators in this document were created to help Kansas educators develop local curricula and assessments, and to serve as the basis for the state assessments in mathematics. The committee strove to recommend high yet reasonable expectations for all students. There are four mathematics curricular standards: (1) number and computation; (2) algebra; (3) geometry; and (4) data. The standards are general statements of what a student should know and be able to do in mathematics. Each of the standards has a series of grade-level benchmarks that are listed below the respective standard. Below each benchmark is a list of indicators that identify what it means for a student to reach the benchmark. Benchmarks have been developed for grades 2, 4, 7, and 10. Four appendices contain information on mathematical reasoning and problem solving, a bibliography, a glossary, and a list of helpful resources. (Contains 15 references.) (ASK)
