  • I can solve linear equations.
  • I can write algebraic expressions and equations symbolically based on real-world or mathematical problems.
Unit 6 - Filling and Wrapping
  • I can understand volume as a measure of filling an object and surface area as a measure of wrapping an object.
  • I can develop strategies for finding the volume and surface area of prisms and pyramids.
  • I can solve real-world problems involving surface area and volume.

  • I can apply the formulas for area and circumference of a circle to real-world and mathematical problems.
Unit 7 - What Do You Expect?
  • I can interpret and explain that probabilities are expressed as a number between 0 to 1; where 0 is unlikely to occur, 1/2 is as equally likely to occur and not occur, and 1 is likely to occur.
  • I can define the probability as a ratio that compares favorable outcomes to all possible outcomes.
  • I can recognize that the sum of all possible outcomes for an event (likely and unlikely) is 1 or 100%. 
  • I can use probability to predict the number of ties a particular event will occur given a specific number of trials.
  • I can explain the relationships between the experimental probability and the theoretical probability.
  • I can develop and utilize a simulation to determine the probability of equally likely events.
  • I can create a sample space of all possible outcomes for a compound event by using an organized list, a table, an area model, or a tree diagram.
  • I can use the sample space to determine the probability of the compound event.
  • I can design and utilize a simulation to predict the probability of a compound event.
 
Unit 8 - Samples and Populations 
  •  I can explain that inferences about a population can be made by examining a sample.
  • I can explain that random sampling tends to produce representative samples of a population.
  • I can evaluate if a sample is a valid representation of a population.
  • I can draw inferences about a population based on data generated by a random sample.
  • I can collect and use multiple samples of data to make generalizations about a population.
  • I can find the difference in the mean or median of two different data sets.
  • I can demonstrate how two data sets that are very different can have similar variabilities.
  • I can draw inferences about the data sets be making a comparison using the mean absolute deviation.

  • I can compare two populations by using the means and/or medians of data collected from random samples.
  • I can compare two populations by using the mean absolute deviations and/or interquartile ranges of data sets.
