The South Dakota State Standards for Mathematics specify what students should know and be able to do as learners of mathematics at the end of each grade level or course. The order of the standards at any grade level is not meant to imply a sequence of topics and should be considered flexible for the organization of coherent learning progressions. The standards are written in a vertical progression that respects what is known about how students learn and how studentsâ€™ mathematical knowledge, skill, and understanding develop over time. The South Dakota State Mathematics Standards set a path for all students to become mathematically proficient and literate by emphasizing and engaging students in problem solving, communicating, reasoning and proof, making connections, using representations, and using mathematics to make sense of the world around them
The South Dakota State Standards for Mathematics have two components: the Standards for Mathematical Practice and the Standards for Mathematical Content. The Standards for Mathematical Practice describe varieties of expertise that mathematics educators at all levels should seek to develop in their students. These practices rest on important processes and proficiencies with longstanding importance in mathematics education. The Standards for Mathematical Practice describe ways in which developing student practitioners of the discipline of mathematics increasingly ought to engage with the subject matter as they grow in mathematical maturity and expertise throughout the elementary, middle, and high school years. The Standards for Mathematical Content are a balanced combination of procedure and understanding.
