It could be a big step toward National Educational Standards.
Indiana is one of nine states working together to develop a common high school math test.
Right now, state standards, and tests based on them, vary wildly for subjects like math, English, and science.
So the states decided to share a test and standards for algebra two.
They say a subject like that should not vary across state lines.
Research has shown that students who complete algebra two are much more likely to go on to earn a college degree.
