Statement of Competencies in Mathematics

Expected of Entering College Students

 As part of MDTP’s efforts to support all California students toward college readiness, we provide this partial summary of the ICAS Statement of Competencies document, to be shared with educators, parents and students in the K ‑12 sector to encourage conversations around college math preparedness.

College mathematics preparation is not just for high schools. Articulation within and across mathematics teaching and learning is essential.

“Students who are ready to succeed in college will have become prepared throughout their primary and secondary education, not just in their college preparatory high school classes...Concept and skill development in the high school curriculum should be a deliberately coordinated extension of the elementary and middle school curriculum.” (p.17)
