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 :
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 90-degree rotation about the origin,
, for a 180-degree rotation about the origin,
, and for a 270-degree rotation about the origin,
. Items that use more than one transformation may
ask the student to write a series of algebraic descriptions.
- Calculator :
- Clarification :
Students will use the definition of similarity in terms of similarity
transformations to decide if two figures are similar.
Students will explain using the definition of similarity in terms of
similarity transformations that corresponding angles of two figures
are congruent and that corresponding sides of two figures are
- Stimulus Attributes :
Items may be set in a real-world or mathematical context
- Response Attributes :
Items may ask the student to determine if given information is
sufficient to determine similarity.
