Wisconsin Mathematics Standards Review
The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) began the review and revision process for Standards for Mathematics in the winter of 2020. Specific information about the standards review process can be found on the Wisconsin DPI's web page for standards The DPI gathers input from teachers, administrators, parents, and other stakeholders as part of the development process. Please feel free to add your thoughts. Read the DPI statement below, and click the survey link to participate!
The survey to gather public comment on the Wisconsin Standards for Mathematics is now open until February 28, 2020. This survey was created to gather comments on the current standards and comments on how the standards might be revised. There are many stakeholders who contribute to the mathematics community and it is important that we hear from all the voices who contribute to students’ success in being confident doers of mathematics. Each individual respondent will have unique perspectives to bring to the comments about the current standards. Collectively, the responses will inform the work of the standards revision process.
