AQR - Advanced Quantitative Reasoning


The Advanced Quantitative Reasoning (AQR) project is creating an innovative post-Algebra II alternative to Pre-calculus for students who have completed Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II, or Integrated High School Mathematics I, II, and III. The AQR course develops mathematical proficiency, statistical proficiency, and quantitative literacy, filling a critical gap in the nation's high school mathematics course offerings. This course is aligned with the Common Core Standards for Mathematics. It is a solution to the fourth year of high school mathematics now required in many states. It addresses numerical reasoning, statistical reasoning, modeling, and spatial reasoning--and balances mathematics language development with in-context, technology-supported inquiry and problem solving.

students engage AQR

Over the past five years, the AQR materials have been tested at 14 high schools in North Carolina, Texas, and Ohio.  During 2013-2014, AQR is being implemented in schools in Singapore, Iowa, Texas, and Ohio--including Cincinnati Public Schools and Columbus City Schools.  If you wish to receive additional information, please contact Greg Foley by email at or by phone at 740-593-4430.
