Concepts tested in 9th Grade TAKS Math Assessment

TAKS Math Objective 1: Foundations for functions

  • understands that a function represents a dependence of one quantity on another and can be described in a variety of ways

TAKS Math Objective 2: Understanding of the properties and attributes of functions

  • uses the properties and attributes of functions
  • understands how algebra can be used to express generalizations and recognizes and uses the power of symbols to represent situations
  • understands the importance of the skills required to manipulate symbols in order to solve problems and uses the necessary algebraic skills required to simplify algebraic expressions and solve equations and inequalities in problem situations

TAKS Math Objective 3: Understanding of linear functions

  • understands that linear functions can be represented in different ways and translates among their various representations
  • understands the meaning of the slope and intercepts of the graphs of linear functions and zeros of linear functions and interprets and describes the effects of changes in parameters of linear functions in real-world and mathematical situations

TAKS Math Objective 4: Formulate and use linear equations and inequalities

  • formulates equations and inequalities based on linear functions, uses a variety of methods to solve them, and analyzes the solutions in terms of the situation
  • formulates systems of linear equations from problem situations, uses a variety of methods to solve them, and analyzes the solutions in terms of the situation

TAKS Math Objective 5: Quadratic and nonlinear functions

  • understands that the graphs of quadratic functions are affected by the parameters of the function and can interpret and describe the effects of changes in the parameters of quadratic functions
  • understands there are situations modeled by functions that are neither linear nor quadratic and models the situations

TAKS Math Objective 6: Understanding of geometric relationships and spatial reasoning.

  • uses transformational geometry to develop spatial sense.
  • uses geometry to model and describe the physical world.

TAKS Math Objective 7: Two- and three-dimensional representations of geometric relationships and shapes

TAKS Math Objective 8: Concepts and uses of measurement and similarity.

  • uses procedures to determine measures of three-dimensional figures.
  • uses indirect measurement to solve problems.

TAKS Math Objective 9: understanding of percents, proportional relationships, probability, and statistics in application problems

  • understands that different forms of numbers are appropriate for different situations
  • identifies proportional or non-proportional linear relationships in problem situations and solves problems
  • applies concepts of theoretical and experimental probability to make predictions.
  • uses statistical procedures to describe data
  • evaluates predictions and conclusions based on statistical data

TAKS Math Objective 10: Understanding of the mathematical processes and tools used in problem solving.

  • applies Grade 9 mathematics to solve problems connected to everyday experiences, investigations in other disciplines, and activities in and outside of school
