The Number Sense
• Know that there are numbers that are not rational, and approximate them by rational numbers

Expressions and Equations

• Work with radicals and integer exponents
• Understand the connection between proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations
• Analyze and solve linear equations and pairs of simultaneous linear equations

Functions

• Define, evaluate, and compare functions
• Use functions to model relationships between quantities

Geometry

• Understand congruence and similarity using physical models, transparencies, or geometric software
• Understand and apply the Pythagorean Theorem
• Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving volume of cylinders, cones, and spheres

Statistics and Probability

• Investigate patterns of association in bivariate data
 Mathematical Practices Make sense of problems and persevere in problem solving Reason abstractly and quantitatively Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others Model with mathematics Use appropriate tools strategically Attend to precision Look for and make use of structure Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning
