african proverb the race at sunrise
African Proverb: The Race at Sunrise

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows that it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed.

Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows that it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.

The moral: It doesn't matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle. When the sun comes up, you had better be running.

slide17
The mathematics benchmarks are organized into four strands:
  • Number Sense and Numerical Operations
  • Algebra
  • Geometry
  • Data Interpretation, Statistics and Probability
mathematical reasoning
Mathematical Reasoning
  • Using inductive and deductive reasoning to arrive at valid conclusions.
  • Using multiple representations to represent problems and solutions.
  • Understanding the role of definitions, proofs and counter-examples in mathematical reasoning; constructing simple proofs.
  • Using the special symbols of mathematics correctly and precisely.
  • Recognizing when an estimate or approximation is more appropriate than an exact answer.
mathematical reasoning19
Mathematical Reasoning
  • Distinguishing relevant from irrelevant information, identifying missing information, and either finding what is needed or making appropriate estimates.
  • Recognizing and using the process of mathematical modeling when mathematical structures are embedded in other contexts.
  • When solving problems, thinking about strategy, testing ideas, trying different approaches, checking for errors and reasonableness of solutions, and devising ways to verify results.
  • Shifting regularly between the specific and the general, using examples to understand general ideas, and extending specific results to more general cases to gain insight.

ACT CollegeReadinessBenchmark Scores

  • Through collaborative research with postsecondary institutions nationwide, ACT has established the following College Readiness Benchmark Scores:
  • A benchmark score is the minimum score needed on an ACT subject area test to indicate a 50% chance of obtaining a B or higher or about a 75% chance of obtaining a C or higher in the corresponding credit-bearing college courses.
