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 AQROver the past six years, the AQR materials were tested at 14 high schools in North Carolina, Texas, and Ohio.  During 2014-2015, AQR is being implemented at roughly 50 high schools in Ohio, including district-wide in Cincinnati and Columbus, and at schools in Massachusetts, Iowa, Texas, and Singapore.  State-wide approval of the Texas edition via Texas Proclamation 2015 appears likely.  If you wish to receive additional information, please contact Greg Foley by email at or by phone at 740-593-4430.
