Illinois Learning Standards

Stage H - Mathematics

Mathematics Classroom Assessments Aligned to the Illinois Learning Standards

The assessments are coded according to learning standard and stage. Example: 6A.H is aligned to standard 6A, stage H (eigth grade). Sample student work, when available, will follow the assessment.

• 6A & 6C.H - Number Lines

Find coordinates and distances on a number line.
• 6B.H - Which Pair?

Determine possible pairings of numbers and operations that will produce the exact value desired without doing any actual computation.
• 6D.H - Selling Price

Calculate the original pricing of a computer game, to allow for the percentage of profit desired.
• 7A & 7B.H - Measuring Your Classroom

Measure the dimensions of the classroom and calculate area; determine the maximum error present in their distance measurements and in their calculated area.
• 7A & 9A & 9C.H - Tangram Perimeters

Compare the relative size relationships between pieces in the seven-piece Tangram square and other figures made of Tangram pieces.
• 7C & 9C.H - Around the Stop Sign

Analyze a drawing of a regular octagon inscribed in a circle to determine angle measures, using knowledge of properties of regular polygons and the sums of angles in various polygons to help solve the problem.
• 8A.H - Marcy's Dots

Identify and extend the pattern of changes in a series of pictures of dots and generalize that pattern in words, and symbols either recursively or explicitly.
• 8B & 8D.H - Walking Home II

Analyze a situation involving distance traveled in a given period of time when rates are provided, represent this situation graphically and algebraically, and discuss the concept of slope as a rate of change represented on the graph.
• 8C.H - Sharing Gum

Solve a problem involving linear inequality and justify the reasoning and procedures.
• 8D.H - Is It Linear?

Write a real-world word problem with two variables in the answer.
• 9A.H - Shapes in Motion

Move a given shape through a series of transformations, determine another single transformation that would have resulted in the same initial pre-image and final image, and analyze whether those motions would produce equivalent images with other starting figures.
• 9B.H - The Stained Glass Window

Analyze a scale drawing to determine the actual size of pieces of a stained glass window.
• 9D.H - Diagonals and Altitudes

Find the length of the diagonal of a square that has a side the length of the altitude of an equilateral triangle, explain reasoning and justify procedures.
