Mathematics Curriculum Framework - November 2000
for Grades 9-10
||Understand measurable attributes of objects and the units, systems, and processes of measurement|
||Apply appropriate techniques, tools, and formulas to determine measurements|
Students engage in problem solving, communicating, reasoning, connecting, and representing as they:
||Calculate perimeter, circumference, and area of common geometric figures such as parallelograms, trapezoids, circles, and triangles.
||Given the formula, find the lateral area, surface area, and volume of prisms, pyramids, spheres, cylinders, and cones, e.g., find the volume of a sphere with a specified surface area.
||Relate changes in the measurement of one attribute of an object to changes in other attributes, e.g., how changing the radius or height of a cylinder affects its surface area or volume.
||Describe the effects of approximate error in measurement and rounding on measurements and on computed values from measurements.
Exploratory Concepts and Skills
for Grades 9-10 and Single-Subject Courses
- Explore the scientific use of different systems of measurement, e.g., centimeter-gram-second (CGS), Scientific International (SI).
