Health Indicator Report of Public Education - Math Proficiency
[http://newmexicocommoncore.org/pages/view/35/new-math-standards-68/ From New Mexico Common Core Standards:] In middle school, multiplication and division develop into powerful forms of ratio and proportional reasoning. The properties of operations take on prominence as arithmetic matures into algebra. The theme of quantitative relationships also becomes explicit in grades 6-8, developing into the formal notion of a function by grade 8. Meanwhile, the foundations of high school deductive geometry are laid in the middle grades. Finally, the gradual development of data representations in grades K-5 leads to statistics in middle school: the study of shape, center and spread of data distributions; possible associations between two variables; and the use of sampling in making statistical decisions.
