Achieve created the American Diploma Project (ADP) mathematics benchmarks for the end of high school to describe the skills needed for success in postsecondary education and the workplace. The benchmarks are cumulative, describing what students need to learn by the end of high school.
Now, Achieve has mapped out what students need to know and be able to do in mathematics in grades K–12, seamlessly connecting the expectations throughout the grades with those for the end of high school. These benchmarks outline a progression of mathematics content throughout grades K–12 that, if followed, will ensure that students master the content needed to be successful in college and careers.
This website was—along with the content, especially the secondary sample tasks and supporting resources—developed by the Charles A. Dana Center in partnership with Achieve. The site provides the mapped K–12 benchmarks, plus model course sequences and sample tasks to help educators see how the benchmarks can be implemented in mathematics classrooms.
