Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.
TEST ITEM SPECIFICATIONS

Item Type(s):
This benchmark will be assessed using:
MC
,
ETC
item(s)
Also Assesses:
MAFS.5.G.1.2 Represent real world and mathematical problems by graphing points in the first quadrant of the coordinate plane, and interpret coordinate values of points in the context of the situation.
 Assessment Limits :
Items assessing MAFS.5.G.1.1 may not require directions between two given points. Points must rely on the origin.Items assessing MAFS.5.G.1.1 may require identifying the point (e.g., Point A) on a coordinate grid that represents a given ordered pair.
Items assessing MAFS.5.G.1.1 may require determining the ordered pair that represents a given point on the coordinate plane.
Items assessing MAFS.5.G.1.1 may not require graphing/plotting a point given an ordered pair.
Points may only contain positive, whole number ordered pairs.
Mathematical and realworld problems must have axes scaled to whole numbers (not letters).
 Calculator :
No
 Context :
No context for MAFS 5.G.1.1; Allowable for MAFS.5.G.1.2
