Critical Math for the ACT 

High school math teachers face continued pressure to raise ACT scores, which play a critical role in the
assessment of both students and schools. How do you balance the expectations between developing
conceptual understanding and reaching proficiency? A closer look at the ACT College and Career Readiness
Standards and the WI Standards for Mathematics (including Middle School standards) reveals critical

In this workshop, you will compare these sets of standards and consider implications for your classroom
instruction. How do the Standards for Mathematical Practice come into play? Explore sample items. Collaborate
with colleagues around ways to address student achievement on this assessment.

Workshop Learning Goals

Criteria for Success:

  • Can I articulate connections between ACT College and Career Readiness Standards and WI Standards for Mathematics?
  • Can I reflect on how my learning today might impact my classroom instruction?
  • Can I consider how I can become an advocate for change in my school and/or district?
Overarching Idea:
Mathematically proficient students are more than procedural thinkers. Unpacking, interpreting, and planning for two sets of standards involves creating opportunities for students to develop conceptual understanding, application, and procedural fluency.
