Big Idea: Mathematical Practice

Understanding: Look for and make use of structure.

Benchmark: Look for and make use of structure. Proficient students look closely to discern a pattern or structure. They recognize the significance of an existing line in a geometric figure and can use the strategy of drawing an auxiliary line for solving problems. They also can step back for an overview and shift perspective. They can see complicated things, such as some algebraic expressions, as single objects or as being composed of several objects.
