PR Patterns and Relations

SS Shape and Space

  • SS.1 Use direct and indirect measurement to solve problems.

  • SS.2 Describe the characteristics of 3-D objects and 2-D shapes, and analyze the relationships among them.

    • SS.2.5 Draw and interpret top, front and side views of 3-D objects composed of right rectangular prisms.

      • SS.2.5.1 Draw and label the top, front and side views for a given 3-D object on isometric dot paper.

      • SS.2.5.2 Compare different views of a given 3-D object to the object.

      • SS.2.5.3 Predict the top, front and side views that will result from a described rotation (limited to multiples of 90º), and verify predictions.

      • SS.2.5.4 Draw and label the top, front and side views that result from a given rotation (limited to multiples of 90º).

      • SS.2.5.5 Build a 3-D block object given the top, front and side views, with or without the use of technology.

      • SS.2.5.6 Sketch and label the top, front and side views of a 3-D object in the environment, with or without the use of technology.

  • SS.3 Describe and analyze position and motion of objects and shapes.

    • SS.3.6 Demonstrate an understanding of the congruence of polygons.

      • SS.3.6.1 Determine the coordinates of the vertices of an image following a given combination of transformations of the original figure.

      • SS.3.6.2 Draw the original figure and determine the coordinates of its vertices, given the coordinates of the image's vertices and a description of the transformation (translation, rotation, reflection).

SP Statistics and Probability

  • SP.1 Collect, display and analyze data to solve problems.

    • SP.1.1 Critique ways in which data is presented in circle graphs, line graphs, bar graphs and pictographs.

      • SP.1.1.1 Compare information provided for the same data set by a given set of graphs, including circle graphs, line graphs, bar graphs and pictographs, to determine the strengths and limitations of each graph.

      • SP.1.1.2 Identify the advantages and disadvantages of different graphs, including circle graphs, line graphs, bar graphs and pictographs, in representing a given set of data.

      • SP.1.1.3 Justify the choice of a graphical representation for a given situation and its corresponding data set.

      • SP.1.1.4 Explain how the format of a given graph, such as the size of the intervals, the width of the bars and the visual representation, may lead to misinterpretation of the data.

      • SP.1.1.5 Explain how a given formatting choice could misrepresent the data.

      • SP.1.1.6 Identify conclusions that are inconsistent with a given data set or graph, and explain the misinterpretation.

  • SP.2 Use experimental or theoretical probabilities to represent and solve problems involving uncertainty.

    • SP.2.2 Solve problems involving the probability of independent events.

      • SP.2.2.1 Determine the probability of two given independent events; and verify the probability, using a different strategy.

      • SP.2.2.2 Generalize and apply a rule for determining the probability of independent events.

      • SP.2.2.3 Solve a given problem that involves determining the probability of independent events.
