+ Name, identify, and apply Number Properties (associative, commutative, distributive, etc…)
+ Transform and manipulate formulas for desired variables
+ Identify and apply patterns to calculate “terms” and/or write rules for number sequences (arithmetic and geometric)
Geometry
+ Identify and apply formulas of basic geometric figures.
+ Graph and interpret linear equations (introduce slopeintercept form)
+ Construct transformations (reflections, rotations, translations)
+ Calculate perimeter, area, and circumference of polygons and irregular figures
