Reporting Category 1: Numbers, Operations, and Quantitative Reasoning - The student will demonstrate an understanding of numbers, operations, and quantitative reasoning.
(7.2) Number, operation, and quantitative reasoning. The student adds, subtracts, multiplies, or divides to solve problems and justify solutions. The student is expected to:
7.2 (C) Use models, such as concrete objects, pictorial models, and number lines, to add, subtract, multiply, and divide integers and connect the actions to algorithms. Supporting Standard (STAAR)
7.2 (E) Simplify numerical expressions involving order of operations and exponents. Supporting Standard (STAAR)
Underlying Processes and Mathematical Tools: These skills will not be listed under a separate recording category. Instead, they will be incorporated into at least 75% of the test questions in reporting categories 1-5 and will be identified along with content standards.
(7.14) Underlying processes and mathematical tools. The student communicates about Grade 7 mathematics through informal and mathematical language, representations, and models. The student is expected to:
7.14 (A) Communicate mathematical ideas using language, efficient tools, appropriate units, and graphical, numerical, physical, or algebraic mathematical models. (STAAR)
