Watch the 2016 Mathematics Standards of Learning YouTube playlist to learn about the upcoming changes.
On September 22, 2016, the Virginia Board of Education adopted the 2016 Mathematics Standards of Learning and 2016 Mathematics Standards of Learning Curriculum Framework. For timeline of implementation and additional information, see Superintendent's Memo 24416.
Mathematics Standards of Learning (SOL) – Adopted 2009
 The Standards of Learning and Curriculum Framework comprise the mathematics content that teachers in Virginia are expected to teach and students are expected to learn.
 Test Blueprints provide information on how SOL assessments and VMAST assessments are constructed.
 Enhanced Scope and Sequence (ESS) Sample Lesson Plans are aligned with the 2009 Mathematics SOL Curriculum Framework; searchable by keyword and SOL.
 SOL Practice Items and VMAST Practice Items (based on the 2009 Mathematics SOL) provide examples of state assessment items.
 Using Statewide SOL Test Results to Guide Instruction – Examples of challenging SOL content based on statewide results.

Virginia's College & Career Ready Mathematics Performance Expectations
Mathematics Performance Expectations define the level of achievement students must reach to be academically prepared for success in entrylevel creditbearing college courses. The expectations were developed through the College & Career Readiness Initiative – a process that involved faculty from Virginia's two and fouryear colleges and universities, members of the business community and high school educators.

 Ancillary Test Materials
Ancillary test materials include mathematics formula sheets for grades 68 and Endofcourse Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II; the Table of Standard Normal Probabilities (ztable); sample grid paper; and Chemistry Periodic Table of the Elements.  SOL Practice Items
Practice items provide examples of the new content and increased rigor of the 2009 Mathematics SOL – including examples of new technologyenhanced items for grades 68, Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II. Technologyenhanced items allow students to indicate their responses in ways other than multiple choice.  Approved Calculators for the Virginia Standards of Learning Assessments (PDF)
