NDE SEEKING PUBLIC INPUT ON NEBRASKA MATHEMATICS STANDARDS
The Nebraska Department of Education is seeking input from the public on the 2015 Nebraska Mathematics Standards. The information collected will be used as part of the standards review and revision process. The revision process is expected to be completed by Fall 2022.
State law requires updates to the mathematics standards every seven years. Once approved by the State Board of Education, the standards create the framework for mathematics education in Nebraska.
Nebraska content area standards reflect the knowledge and skills students are expected to learn in a given content area. By setting clear benchmarks for learning, content area standards provide guidance to teachers as they develop learning experiences. Standards do not prescribe particular curriculum, lessons, teaching techniques, or activities. Decisions about curriculum and instruction are made locally by individual school districts and classroom teachers.
The 2015 Nebraska Mathematics Standards survey is available at: https://nde.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6YI1a9ZbpkjRhkO. Information on the math standards revision process is located at: https://www.education.ne.gov/math/mathematics-standards-revision/.
