Mathematics Instructional Plans (MIPs)
Mathematics Instructional Plans (MIPs) – formerly known as Enhanced Scope and Sequence Lessons, are now available for Grades K-8, Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, and Algebra, Functions and Data Analysis. These instructional plans include updated 2009 documents, as well as newly developed instructional plans aligned to the 2016 Mathematics Standards of Learning. The Mathematics Instructional Plans assist teachers in aligning instruction with the 2016 Mathematics Standards of Learning by providing examples of how the knowledge, skills and processes found in the SOL and Curriculum Framework can be presented to students in the classroom.
Online Calculator in Revised Mathematics Standards of Learning Tests Beginning in Spring 2019
Beginning with the spring 2019 test administration, the revised Standards of Learning assessments measuring the 2016 Mathematics Standards of Learning that are administered online will include access to an online calculator from Desmos within the secure online test delivery software, TestNav. Refer to Superintendent’s Memo #144-18.
Change in 2016 Mathematics SOL Implementation Timeline
VDOE Mathematics Coordinator Tina Mazzacane discusses the recently announced delay of the introduction of state math tests based on the 2016 Mathematics Standards of Learning until spring 2019. More information in Superintendent's Memo #043-18.
End-of-Course Mathematics SOL tests administered in the fall of 2018 will continue to assess the 2009 Mathematics Standards of Learning and include field test items measuring the 2016 Mathematics Standards of Learning. For updated implementation timeline and additional information, go to Superintendent's Memo 043-18.
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.

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

- Correlation of Virginia’s Mathematics Performance Expectations with Virginia’s 2009 Mathematics Standards of Learning (PDF)
- Ancillary Test Materials
Ancillary test materials include mathematics formula sheets for grades 6-8 and End-of-course Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II; the Table of Standard Normal Probabilities (z-table); 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 technology-enhanced items for grades 6-8, Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II. Technology-enhanced items allow students to indicate their responses in ways other than multiple choice.
