News
• There will be summer training offered by the
Tennessee Department of Education for 9-12
math teachers. More details coming.
• Tennessee teachers are supposed to use
Common Core Standards for Algebra I, Algebra
II, and Geometry during 2013-2014.
• 2013-2014 is the last year for our current EOC
exams.
More News
• The PARCC Assessment will be used in 20142015. Sample items have been released.
• The state has hired 8 regional math
coordinators for each of the 8 CORE centers.
More News
• Some SPIs in grades 3-8 math have been
dropped this year in preparation for
implementation of Common Core.
• Algebra II will have an annual measurable
objective (AMO) this year.
• Remember that Algebra II TVAAS scores for
Numeracy and Overall TVAAS score.

Algebra I—Standard 5
• SPI 3102.5.1 Interpret displays of data to answer questions
about the data set(s) (e.g., identify pattern, trends, and/or
outliers in a data set).
• SPI 3102.5.2 Identify the effect on mean, median, mode,
and range when values in the data set are changed.
• SPI 3102.5.3 Using a scatter-plot, determine if a linear
relationship exists and describe the association between
variables.
• SPI 3102.5.4 Generate the equation of a line that fits linear
data and use it to make a prediction.
• SPI 3102.5.5 Determine theoretical and/or experimental
probability of an event and/or its complement including
using relative frequency.
Algebra I Cram Course
• I created this materials for use at Haywood
High School in reviewing our students for the
Algebra I EOC.
• Hard copies of these materials can be found at
the following URL:

Algebra II-Standard 5
• SPI 3103.5.1 Compute, compare and explain summary statistics for
distributions of data including measures of center and spread.
• SPI 3103.5.2 Compare data sets using graphs and summary statistics.
• SPI 3103.5.3 Analyze patterns in a scatter-plot and describe relationships
in both linear and non-linear data.
• SPI 3103.5.4 Apply the characteristics of the normal distribution.
• SPI 3103.5.5 Determine differences between randomized experiments and
observational studies.
• SPI 3103.5.6 Find the regression curve that best fits both linear and nonlinear data (using technology such as a graphing calculator) and use it to
make predictions.
• SPI 3103.5.7 Determine/recognize when the correlation coefficient
measures goodness of fit.
• SPI 3103.5.8 Apply probability concepts such as conditional probability
and independent events to calculate simple probability.
