Illinois Learning Standards

Stage E - Mathematics

Mathematics Classroom Assessments Aligned to the Illinois Learning Standards

The assessments are coded according to learning standard and stage. Example: 6A.E is aligned to standard 6A, stage E (fifth grade). Sample student work, when available, will follow the assessment.

• 6A & 6C & 6D & 10A.E M & M Math

Determine and compare estimates, actual counts, the minimum values, maximum values, ranges, modes, medians, means, ratios and percents of M&Ms in an individual bag and in all students’ bags.
• 6B.E Prime or Composite

Determine prime and composite numbers from one to 100 and arrange a composite number’s factors in a rainbow pattern.
• 6C & 7B.E Hershey's Kiss

Make estimates about the weight, cost, height, circumference, diameter, and length of a Hershey’s kiss and the shape, perimeter and area of its wrapper and compare the estimates to actual measurements.

Measure and compute the actual measurements of the room using a scale drawing and determine the perimeter and area of this irregular shape.
• 8A & 8B & 8C.E Perimeter Chains

Describe the pattern of change in the perimeters of chains of regular polygons using a table and a variable expression.
• 8D.E Beanstick Algebra

Create and solve linear equations with variables using manipulatives.
• 9A.E Geometry Riddles

Create riddles that include clues to the attributes and/or properties of geometric shapes.
• 9B.E Mat Plans

Use a mat plan and snap cubes to make a three-dimensional building and match it to a two-dimensional drawings of the buildings.
• 9C.E Pentomino Boxes

Use all twelve of the pentomino shapes to make a conjecture about which of the shapes will fold into a box without a top or lid, write a logical argument to justify each choice, test conjectures by cutting the shapes out and folding them into boxes.

• 10B.E Mediumest Kid

Make predictions about what the “mediumest” student in their grade level would be like, design a questionnaire to collect data, compile and display data, use conclusions drawn from the data to justify their description of the “mediumest” student.
• 10C.E What's in the Bag?

Determine how many red and yellow links are in a bag based on data collected from three trials of ten draws each where one link is drawn from a bag at a time and replaced.
