in realworld settings, and by solving problems through the integrated
study of number systems, geometry, algebra, data analysis, probability,
and trigonometry.
Standard 7 Interdisciplinary Problem Solving
Students will apply the knowledge and thinking skills of mathematics,
science, and technology to address reallife problems and make informed
decisions.
Standard 8 Mathematics
Students will understand the concepts of and become proficient with
the skills of mathematics; communicate and reason mathematically;
become problem solvers by using appropriate tools and strategies;
