Mathematics Objectives:

A. Incorporation of Performance Standards as Tasks
The student will perform mathematics skills:
1. Measure
Produce scale diagrams.
Understand and use both non-standard and
standard units.
Understand the metric system of measurement.
Choose the appropriate units in a given situation.
Determine the best device for a particular measurement.
Understand the validity and usefulness of accurate
measurements but acknowledge that no measurement is
exact.
2. Create and use patterns and functions
Describe, extend, analyze, and create a wide variety of
patterns.
Describe and represent relationships with tables, graphs
rules and models.
Analyze functional relationships to explain how a
change in one quantity results in a change in another.
Use patterns and functions to represent and solve
problems.
3. Use Statistics
Systematically collect, organize, and describe data.
Construct, read, and interpret tables, charts, and graphs.
Make inferences and convincing arguments that are
based on data analysis.
Evaluate arguments that are based on data analysis.
Develop an appreciation for statistical methods as
powerful means for decision-making.
B. Incorporation of Knowledge Standards
The student will understand that certain fundamental concepts, or
themes cut across mathematics as a subject area:
1. Organization: Mathematics by definition involves organization
of numerical concepts.
2. Systems and Interactions: Numerical accuracy is relative to a
given context.
3. Change: A change in one variable affects another.
