Giles County Board of Education Mathematics The Terra Nova Complete Battery for Mathematics is "designed to help students show what they know and can do. Many questions call for critical thinking, reasoning, and problem solving. Questions allow students to use different strategies and to take individual paths to a solution. Realworld topics engage students' interest, and the extensive use of graphics reduces the need for explanatory text and provides a supportive context. Themes group items into meaningful configurations, and items are generally sequenced to promote initial success so that students will continue with confidence to more challenging questions. 
Functions 
Functional Relationships: Comprehend
The learner will be able to display comprehension of functional relationships (nonstandard units).

Data Interpretation 
Evaluate Graphical Forms: Select Display
The learner will be able to choose the most suitable form and/or method of data display.

Graphs: Analyze
The learner will be able to analyze information presented in a variety of graphical forms (bar graphs, pictographs).

Whole Numbers 
Number Sense: Counting/Grouping
The learner will be able to describe and display counting, grouping, and/or placevalue ideas as they pertain to whole numbers.

Add Whole Numbers
The learner will be able to perform addition on whole numbers (with and/or without regrouping).

Subtract Whole Numbers
The learner will be able to perform subtraction on whole numbers (with and/or without regrouping).

Fractions 
Fractions: Represent
The learner will be able to illustrate fractions in many different ways, such as concretely, pictorially, and/or symbolically (1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/6).

Probability/Statistics 
Data: Interpretation
The learner will be able to understand and/or analyze data through the identification of patterns and relationships, by considering causes and effects, and/or by determining conclusions.

Data: Compare
The learner will be able to make comparisons of data.

Data: Describing
The learner will be able to write an accurate description of data given in graphical form.

Data Analysis: Real World Applications
The learner will be able to apply data analysis concepts in real world scenarios (information to make graphs) and gather data through observation, measurement,interviews, surveys and/or counting methods.

Problem Solving 
The Problem Solving Unit focuses on the problem solving effort. This unit includes analyzing problems, evaluating solutions, problem exploration, and strategies. 
Solutions: Evaluating Reasonableness
The learner will be able to evaluate a problem and given solution for reasonableness, and justify or discount the solution.

Strategies: Solve
The learner will be able to solve routine and nonroutine problems using a variety of strategies, such as usage of drawings, diagrams, and organized lists, models and "act out", spatial visualization, logical thinking, estimation, patterns, and the guess and check strategy.

Strategies: Applying
The learner will be able to apply appropriate strategies to solve problems, such as, make a chart or graph, make a simpler problem, work backwards, and break the problem into parts.

Represent Problems: Connections
The learner will be able to make connections between mathematical representations and their corresponding problem scenarios.
