Graph linear and quadratic equations and inequalities.
Simplify real number expressions.
Algebraic Thinking and Problem Solving
Represent mathematical situations and structures analytically using algebraic symbols.
Use mathematical models to represent quantitative relationships.
Analyze change in various contexts.
Apply processes and strategies to solve problems.
Numeration Systems and Number Theory
Demonstrate knowledge of numerical patterns, numeration systems, sets, and functions.
Describe the interrelationship among mathematical operations.
Compute with whole numbers.
Make reasonable estimates.
Apply the tests for divisibility.
Real Numbers and Applications
Compute with fractions.
Compute with decimals.
Compute with integers.
Solve ratio, proportion, and percentage problems.
Standards and Professional Organizations
Describe the standards and principles of mathematics as taught in K-12 schools.
Examine the role of professional mathematics organizations.
