Utah Core Revision Information

The Elementary Mathematics Core Standards have been revised based on the following recommendations approved by the Utah State Board of Education (USBE) in March 2015:

  • Code the standards to show major focus, supporting standards, and additional standards.
  • Move the content of all footnotes into the standards.
  • Clarify the standards by making a clickable version.
    • Define words and intent
    • Rewrite some standards without changing the intent
    • Link to the progression documents
    • Give better examples
  • Add standards on time and money in primary grades.

The USBE removed the first recommendation (to code the standards for focus) in their meeting on September 18, 2015 and approved all other revisions.

The revised standards are now open for a ninety-day public review. The review period began on September 21, 2015 and will end at midnight on Sunday, December 20, 2015. Below are the documents for review and a link for the survey where you may give your feedback.
