About this measure
Mathematics instruction and assessment will reflect broad evidenced-based measures based on what students know and can do. These high-level mathematics claims include concepts and procedures, problem solving, modeling and data analysis, and skills in communicating reasoning (see below).
Claim #1 Concepts and Procedures Students can explain and apply mathematical concepts and interpret and carry out mathematical procedures with precision and fluency.
Claim #2 Problem Solving Students can solve a range of complex well-posed problems in pure and applied mathematics, making productive use of knowledge and problem-solving strategies.
Claim #3 Communicating Reasoning Students can clearly and precisely construct viable arguments to support their own reasoning and to critique the reasoning of others.
Claim #4 Modeling and Data Analysis Students can analyze complex, real-world scenarios and can construct and use mathematical models to interpret and solve problems.
Claims 1 — 4 Illustrate the high level in which students will be measured.
