Primary emphasis on conceptual understanding of and solving problems involving whole numbers, integers, mathematical operations, decimals, decimal operations, fractions, percentages, angles and geometric figures. Use of systems of measure, similarity, proportionality and the Pythagorean theorem. Focus on mathematical language, connections, patterns and reasoning, and additive and multiplicative reasoning.
Emphasis on meanings related to variable, equality, inequality, equivalence. The use of additive and multiplicative reasoning in solving linear equations and inequalities in one variable. Validation of solution(s) through a reasonable mathematical defense. Transfer and apply knowledge through a process of sense making and reasonableness in mathematical problems and practical application situations. Recognize patterns and organize data to represent situations where output is related to input. Understand the concept of function and be able to represent functions in multiple ways, including tables, algebraic rules, graphs and contextual situations, and make connections among these representations. Read, represent, and interpret linear function relationships numerically, analytically, graphically and verbally and connect the different representations. Model and solve real world problems involving constant rate of change.
