Access Point #: MAFS.912.N-Q.1.AP.2a

Determine and interpret appropriate quantities when using descriptive modeling.
Clarifications:

Essential Understandings

Concrete:

  • Match the unit to the issue within a real-world problem (e.g., How long did the trip take? Solve in hours/ minutes.)
  • Match the equation to the problem.
Representation:
  • Understand written representation of time, money, temperature, weight, speed, mass, volume, distance.
  • Enter data from a problem into the provided equation.
  • Translate wording into a numeric equation.
  • Translate wording into an algebraic equation.
General Information
Number: MAFS.912.N-Q.1.AP.2a
Category: Access Points
Date Adopted or Revised: 07/14
Cluster: Reason quantitatively and use units to solve problems. (Algebra 1 - Supporting Cluster) (Algebra 2 - Supporting Cluster)

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.
