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 :
- Calculator :
- Clarification :
Students will use the precise definitions of angles, circles,
perpendicular lines, parallel lines, and line segments, basing the
definitions on the undefined notions of point, line, distance along a
line, and distance around a circular arc.
- Stimulus Attributes :
Items may be set in a real-world or mathematical context
Items may require the student to analyze possible definitions to
determine mathematical accuracy.
Items may require the student to use definitions for justifications
when choosing examples or nonexamples.
Items may require the student to use properties of rotations,
reflections, and translations as steps to a formal definition.
- Response Attributes :
