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.
