Aerial Reconnaissance Simulation
NMALG.68.1
Understand patterns,
relations, and functions.
NMALG.68.2
Represent and analyze
mathematical situations and structures using
algebraic symbols.

Develop an initial
conceptual understanding of different
uses of variables.

Use symbolic algebra
to represent situations and to solve
problems, especially those that involve
linear relationships.
NMALG.68.4
Analyze change in
various contexts.
NMGEO.68.4
Use visualization,
spatial reasoning, and geometric modeling to
solve problems.

Recognize and apply
geometric ideas and relationships in
areas outside the mathematics classroom,
such as art, science, and everyday life.
NMMEA.68.2
Apply appropriate
techniques, tools, and formulas to determine
measurements.

Select and apply
techniques and tools to accurately find
length, area, volume, and angle measures
to appropriate levels of precision.

Develop and use
formulas to determine the circumference
of circles and the area of triangles,
parallelograms, trapezoids, and circles
and develop strategies to find the area
of more complex shapes.

Solve simple
problems involving rates and derived
measurements for such attributes as
velocity and density.
NMPROB.PK12.2
Solve problems that
arise in mathematics and in other contexts.
NMPROB.CONN.PK12.3
Recognize and apply
mathematics in contexts outside of
mathematics.
