The K-12 CCSS Standards for Mathematics and the Standards for Mathematical Practice define what students should understand and be able to do by the end of each grade or course. The New Mexico Instructional Scope for Mathematics was created to support educators in deeply understanding the clusters for each grade level along with other elements or tenets that are part of providing a guaranteed, viable, and equitable instruction to all students.

How to use the Instructional Scope for Mathematics:

  • Support your lesson planning
  • Guide teams to discuss, plan, model, and reflect on your practice.
  • Scaffold your deliberate planning and your focused conversations with your colleagues during professional learning community discussions, supporting your use of high-quality instruction that meets the needs of all learners.
  • Consider how to address learning needs and where targeted scaffolds may be needed to assist students in accessing grade level core instruction.
  • Use side by side with high-quality instructional materials.
  • Incorporate supports that contribute to equitable classroom structures.
  • Design classroom learning environments that minimize barriers and optimize learning for all students.
  • Monitor students’ progress on grade-appropriate assignments.

Mathematics standards have been broken down to give clarity around what the standard means as well as clarity around student performance. Embedded formative assessments tasks/sample are aligned with clusters. These may be used as part of formative assessments or as tasks during instruction

You are encouraged to read the NM Instructional Scope in its entirety. You will then find both a full grade level document and each section of the scope broken down into separate PDFs.
