## Information on Assessable Standards for Grade 10 Mathematics MCAS Transition

### Example of a Grade 9-10 standard in the 2000 framework that correlates to multiple standards in the 2011 framework:

 2000 Framework (grade 9 -10) 10.G.4 : Apply congruence and similarity correspondences and properties of the figures to find missing parts of geometric figures, and provide logical justification.
 2011 Framework (high school) G-SRT.2 : Given two figures, use the definition of similarity in terms of similarity transformations to decide if they are similar; explain using similarity transformations the meaning of similarity for triangles as the equality of all corresponding pairs of angles and the proportionality of all corresponding pairs of sides. G-SRT.5 : Use congruence and similarity criteria for triangles to solve problems and to prove relationships in geometric figures.

Two standards from the 2011 framework need to be identified to cover all the content in standard 10.G.4 from the 2000 framework.

### Example of a Grade 9-10 standard in the 2000 framework that correlates to an earlier grade's standard in the 2011 framework:

 2000 Framework (grade 9 -10) 10.D.3 : Describe and explain how the relative sizes of a sample and the population affect the validity of predictions from a set of data.
 2011 Framework (grade 7) 7.SP.1 : Understand that statistics can be used to gain information about a population by examining a sample of the population; generalizations about a population from a sample are valid only if the sample is representative of that population. Understand that random sampling tends to produce representative samples and support valid inferences.

A standard from an earlier grade in the 2011 framework needs to be identified to match the content in standard 10.D.1 from the 2000 framework. The statistical concepts of sample size and validity are introduced in the grade 7 standards in the 2011 framework.
