Alignment

The degree to which expectations

and assessments are in agreement

and serve in conjunction with one another to guide the system toward students learning what is expected.

Grade 8 Standards from Three States

State A:

The student will use proportions to solve scale-model problems with fractions and decimals.

State B:

Students compute with rational numbers expressed in a variety of forms; they solve problems involving ratios, proportions, and percentages. Use ratio and proportion to solve problems.

State C:

Apply proportional thinking in a variety of problem situations that include, but are not limited to: 1) ratios and proportions, and 2) percents, including those greater than 100 and less than one.

New Cubes

Your school is planning a casino night to raise funds to construct a wall aquarium in your school. As a mathematics student, you are given the job of developing a dice game for this event.

A regular pair of “number dice” consists of two cubes, each with its faces numbered 1 through 6. Often, dice games are played by rolling the two dice and then finding the sum of the two numbers turned upward.

1. Show that, with a regular pair of number dice, the probability of rolling a sum of 7 is greater than the probability of rolling any other sum.
