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

When solving a multi-step problem, use units to evaluate the appropriateness of the solution.

Essential Understandings


  • Determine what units are used in problem (e.g., money, time, units of measurement).
  • Match the action of combining with vocabulary (i.e., in all; altogether) or the action of decomposing with vocabulary (i.e., have left; take away, difference) in a word problem.
  • Apply conversions of units while solving problems (e.g., recognize that monetary units can be combined to equal other monetary units).
  • Translate wording into a numeric equation.
  • Translate wording into an algebraic equation.
General Information
Number: MAFS.912.N-Q.1.AP.1b
Category: Access Points
Date Adopted or Revised: 06/14
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.
