National Math Standards

NM-NUM.: Understand numbers, ways of representing numbers, relationships among numbers, and number systems.

  • Work flexibly with fractions, decimals, and percents to solve problems.

NM-NUM.: Compute fluently and make reasonable estimates.

  • Develop and analyze algorithms for computing with fractions, decimals, and integers and develop fluency in their use.

NM-GEO.: 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.

NM-MEA.: 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.

NM-DATA.: Understand and apply basic concepts of probability.

  • Use proportionality and a basic understanding of probability to make and test conjectures about the results of experiments and simulations.
