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 may require the student to be familiar with using the algebraic
description for a translation, and
for a dilation when given the center of dilation.Items may require the student to be familiar with the algebraic
description for a 90degree rotation about the origin,
for a 180degree rotation about the origin,
and for a 270degree rotation about the origin,
.Items that use more than one transformation may
ask the student to write a series of algebraic descriptions.Items must not use matrices to describe transformations.
Items must not require the student to use the distance formula.
Items may require the student to find the distance between two
points or the slope of a line.In items that require the student to represent transformations, at
least two transformations should be applied  Calculator :
Neutral
 Clarification :
Students will apply two or more transformations to a given figure to
draw a transformed figure.Students will specify a sequence of transformations that will carry a
figure onto another.Students will describe rotations and reflections that carry a geometric
figure onto itself.  Stimulus Attributes :
Items may be set in a realworld or mathematical context.Items may require the student to provide a sequence of
transformations.Items may require the student to determine if an attribute of a figure
is the same after a sequence of transformations has been applied.  Response Attributes :
Items may require the student to use a function, e.g.,
, to describe a transformation.Items may require the student to give a line of reflection and/or a
degree of rotation that carries a figure onto itself.Items may require the student to draw a figure using a description of
a transformation.Items may require the student to graph a figure using a description of
a rotation and/or reflection.In items in which the student has to write the line of reflection, any
line may be used.Items may require the student to be familiar with slopeintercept
form of a line, standard form of a line, and pointslope form of a line.Items may require the student to write a line of reflection that will
carry a figure onto itself.Items may require the student to give a degree of rotation that will
carry a figure onto itself.
