Ratios and Proportional Relationships
  • Analyze proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems
The Number Sense
  • Apply and extend previous understandings of operations with fractions to add, subtraction, multiply, and divide rational numbers

Expressions and Equations

  • Use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions
  • Solve real-life and mathematical problems using numerical and algebraic expressions and equations


  • Draw, construct and describe geometrical figures and describe the relationships between them
  • Solve real-life and mathematical problems involving angle measure, area, surface area, and volume

Statistics and Probability

  • Use random sampling to draw inferences about a population
  • Draw informal comparative inferences about two populations
  • Investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability models

Modeling with Geometry

  • Apply geometric concepts in modeling situations
