Illinois Learning Standards
Stage G - Mathematics
Mathematics Classroom Assessments Aligned to the Illinois Learning Standards
The assessments are coded according to learning standard and stage. Example: 6A.G is aligned to standard 6A, stage G (seventh grade). Sample student work, when available, will follow the assessment.
Convert large numbers into scientific notation, compute and compare ratios to explain why drawing completely accurate scale drawings of the solar system is not feasible.
Analyze the instructions for cutting a board into fractional parts to determine why following those instructions did not produce the desired results and reword the directions to prevent the error in the future.
Analyze the appropriateness of the algorithms applied to six computations and determine if they will obtain the correct results.
