Iron County School District uses the Utah Core Standards to provide clear expectations regarding student learning and to guide the content and skills that every student needs to be college and career ready. Utah has two sets of Standards for Mathematics: The Standards for Mathematical Practice and the Standards for Mathematical Content. These math standards inform teachers what students will achieve at each grade-level. While the content and depth varies from grade to grade, the math practices are the same across grade levels. They include:

  • Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them
  • Reason abstractly and quantitatively
  • Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others
  • Model with mathematics
  • Use appropriate tools strategically
  • Attend to precision
  • Look for and make use of structure
  • Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning
