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
This benchmark may be assessed using:
- Assessment Limits :
The coordinate plane should not be used until MAFS.8.G.1.3. Limit sequences to no more than two transformations. A pre-image and image should not include apostrophe notation as this would give away the identification of similarity and congruence. No reference to the definition of congruence or symbols relating to the definition should be used (HS Geometry).
- Calculator :
- Context :
MAFS.8.G.1.1 Verify experimentally the properties of rotations, reflections, and translations:
MAFS.8.G.1.1a Lines are taken to lines, and line segments to line segments of the same length.
MAFS.8.G.1.1b Angles are taken to angles of the same measure.
MAFS.8.G.1.1c Parallel lines are taken to parallel lines.
