Mathematics

Students using colored tiles to solve math problems

Mathematics education in Rhode Island is currently centered on the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for Mathematics.

These standards were developed by a state-led initiative that actively involved experts in the field of mathematics as well as state-level educational agencies, teachers, and parents. The CCSS provide clear, consistent expectations about the knowledge, skills, and practices students should know and be able to do at each grade level. Educators should use a local curriculum aligned to the standards to plan instruction and assessment. The RICAS assessment is used to measure Rhode Island students’ mathematics proficiency level. For information and resources related to RICAS, please go to the RICAS Assessments page on our website.

SUM - Teacher/Interventionist Course - Registration is now open 

SUM (Steps to Understanding Mathematics), a professional learning series, is a program created in partnership between RIDE and the Rhode Island Mathematics Teachers Association (RIMTA). The intention of this course is to increase an educator’s ability to identify student gaps in the understanding of number, operations, and computation on whole numbers and decimals and support instruction in those areas. SUM training will help educators identify needs, select learning activities and use recording tools when ready to implement. Interested educators will need to commit to four days of summer training at CCRI Knight Campus in Warwick on August 14, 15, 21, 22 from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm (Lunch not included) during which they will experience four learning modules, which can be applied in any classroom or intervention setting. Sessions will include:

  • content knowledge development
  • student work analysis
  • video case studies
  • sample learning activities
  • student tracking tools

Participants will also have time during the sessions to create a plan to integrate SUM into their current school environment. This program is offered at no cost to districts or individuals - download the SUM informational flyer here.
