1. Organize and consolidate their understanding of mathematics through communication. 2. Communicate their mathematical thinking coherently and clearly. 3. Analyze and evaluate their mathematical thinking and strategies to others. 4. Use the language of mathematics to express mathematical ideas.

Standard 9: Connections.

This standard states that:

1. Students should be given the opportunity to recognize and use connections among mathematical ideas. 2. Recognize and use mathematics in contexts outside mathematics.
