High School Math Assessments
“Hey teacher! How will we ever use this stuff?”
Notes to the Teacher
Here is a collection of math assessments written especially for high school. They were created with Wyoming Math Standards in mind, but since they are based on the NCTM standards any teacher from any state will probably find them useful.
Each assessment is written to be a short, quick assignment that will give the teacher an easy way to see progress in different areas. Wyoming teachers can think of these as ‘mini BOE activities’. Most will take only a few minutes to complete, thus you don’t have to make big changes in your current curriculum. We also tried to base these on real-life applications so students can see the relevance in everyday life.
There are a total of 60 assessments written for Algebra 1, Algebra 2, Geometry, and Trigonometry. You can use as many or as few as you would like.
Ideas and suggestions are welcome. We would like to keep updating and improving these exercises. Send suggestions to Jim Hoffman at hoffman@bgh4.k12.wy.us
Wyoming Math Standards:

Each of the assessments has a short description including math skills used and standards assessed. You can download the files in Word format (.doc) and make any changes you like.
