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.

 Assessment Limits :
Items should not include the coordinate plane as the coordinate plane is needed in MAFS.8.G.1.3. Limit the sequence to no more than two transformations. Twodimensional figures are limited to no more than seven sides. A preimage 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 :
Neutral

Allowable
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.
