 National Math Standard Journey North Bald Eagle Activity or Lesson A. NUMBERS & OPERATIONS Understand meanings of operations and how they relate to one another. Understand numbers, ways of representing numbers, relationships among numbers, and number systems. Compute fluently and make reasonable estimates. B. ALGEBRA Understand patterns, relations, and functions. Represent and analyze mathematical situations and structures using algebraic symbols. Use mathematical models to represent and understand quantitative relationships. .X Analyze change in various contexts. .X C. GEOMETRY Analyze characteristics and properties of 2- and 3-dimensional geometric shapes and develop mathematical arguments about geometric relationships. Specify locations and describe spatial relationships using coordinate geometry and other representational systems. Apply transformations and use symmetry to analyze mathematical situations. X Use visualization, spatial reasoning, and geometric modeling to solve problems. X D. MEASUREMENT Understand measurable attributes of objects and the units, systems, and processes of measurement. What Time is It, Satellite Time? Apply appropriate techniques, tools, and formulas to determine measurements. E. DATA ANALYSIS & PROBABILITY Understand and apply basic concepts of probability. Formulate questions that can be addressed with data and collect, organize, and display relevant data to answer them. Develop and evaluate inferences and predictions that are based on data. Select and use appropriate statistical methods to analyze data. F. PROBLEM SOLVING Build new mathematical knowledge through problem solving. Solve problems that arise in mathematics and in other contexts. Apply and adapt a variety of appropriate strategies to solve problems. X Monitor and reflect on the process of mathematical problem solving. X G. REASONING & PROOF Recognize reasoning and proof as fundamental aspects of mathematics. X Make and investigate mathematical conjectures. X Develop and evaluate mathematical arguments and proofs. X Select and use various types of reasoning and methods of proof. H. COMMUNICATION Organize and consolidate their mathematical thinking though communication. .X Communicate their mathematical thinking coherently and clearly to peers, teachers, and others. .X Analyze and evaluate the mathematical thinking and strategies of others. Use the language of mathematics to express mathematical ideas precisely. .X I.
