    • Use strategies that have been taught to solve multistep problems with fractions and decimals.

    Topic 2: Integers and Rational Numbers

    • Use a number line to identify, compare, and order rational numbers.

    • Use the absolute value of a number to describe its distance from zero on a number line and to find the distance between points on a coordinate plane.

    Topic 3: Numeric and Algebraic Expressions

    • Use exponents and the order of operations to evaluate a numerical expression.

    • Write and evaluate algebraic expressions to represent a situation.

    • Simplify expressions to generate equivalent expressions.

    Topic 4: Represent and Solve Equations and Inequalities

    • Use an inequality symbol to represent a situation.

    Topic 5: Understand and Use Ratio and Rate

    • Create and solve ratio problems by creating equivalent ratios

    • Use ratios to compare different quantities and solve unit rate problems.

    • Use unit rates and conversion factors to convert customary, metric, or both units of measure.

    Topic 6: Understand and Use Percents

    • Convert between fractions, decimals, and percents.

    • Use percents to find the part or the whole of a number.

    Topic 7: Solve Area, Surface Area, and Volume Problems

    • Find the area of parallelograms, triangles, trapezoids, and other polygons.
