- For Grades: 9-12
- Learning Goal 1
- Mathematics is the study of quantities and shapes, the patterns and relationships between quantities or shapes, and operations on either quantities or shapes. Some of these relationships involve natural phenomena, while others deal with abstractions not tied to the physical world.

- For Grades: 3-5
- Learning Goal 2
- In using mathematics, choices have to be made about what operations will give the best results. Results should always be judged by whether they make sense and are useful.

- Learning Goal 2
- For Grades: 6-8
- Learning Goal 2b
- Using mathematics to solve a problem requires choosing what mathematics to use; probably making some simplifying assumptions, estimates, or approximations; doing computations; and then checking to see whether the answer makes sense.
