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.
Remarks/ExamplesGeometry - Fluency Recommendations
Fluency with the use of coordinates to establish geometric results, calculate length and angle, and use geometric representations as a modeling tool are some of the most valuable tools in mathematics and related fields.
TEST ITEM SPECIFICATIONS
This benchmark may be assessed using:
- Assessment Limits :
Lines may include horizontal and vertical lines.
Items may not ask the student to provide only the slope of a parallel
or perpendicular line.
- Calculator :
- Clarification :
Students will prove the slope criteria for parallel lines.
Students will prove the slope criteria for perpendicular lines.
Students will find equations of lines using the slope criteria for
parallel and perpendicular lines.
- Stimulus Attributes :
Items may be set in a real-world or mathematical context.
- Response Attributes :
Items may require the student to be familiar with slope-intercept
form of a line, standard form of a line, and point-slope form of a line.
