The Department of Public Instruction is committed to expanding opportunities for students to meet graduation requirements. In the Summer of 2011, Wisconsin released information about establishing local math equivalency credit to technology and engineering courses as well as Project Lead the Way (PLTW) courses

Please feel free to contact Mr. Brent Kindred, Technology and Engineering consultant, at **brent.kindred@dpi.wi.gov** if you have any questions about the math equivalency credit process.

## Informational Resources:

**Technology and Engineering Education and Mathematics Education Report**- This document provides background information and equivalency recommendations for mathematics equivalency in Technology and Engineering PLTW courses.**Approved Math Equivalency Schools and Courses**- This document outlines all Wisconsin schools that have approved technology and engineering/math equivalency credit courses.**Step By Step**- This is a step-by-step process districts can use to help guide them through the process of applying for math credit.

## Applications:

**Tech. Ed. - Equivalency Course Application Form (PI-1803-TE)**- Application form technology and engineering departments will use for non-PLTW courses when applying for math equivalency credit.**Tech. Ed.- PLTW - Equivalency Course Application Form (PI-1803-TE PLTW)**- Application form technology and engineering departments will use for PLTW courses when applying for math equivalency credit.

## TEE Mathematics Crosswalks:

The following documents are tools for crosswalking TEE classes that are non-PLTW courses to determine mathematics content bases on Common Core State Standards.

**Sample TEE Mathematics Crosswalk -**Crosswalk Template in Word format should be used by districts to input local course curriculum. Previous sample crosswalk templates may be used until February 1st, 2016. After this date, school districts must use this new crosswalk template which was updated to provide flexibility for districts to document standards that have been locally approved.
