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.
Over the past seven years, the AQR materials were tested at 14 high schools in North Carolina, Texas, and Ohio. During 2015-2016, AQR was implemented at roughly 200 high schools in Iowa, Massachusetts, Ohio, Texas, and Singapore, and district-wide in Cincinnati, Columbus, Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio.
