List of Benchmarks for Mathematics 
 Standard 5.Understands and applies basic and advanced properties of the concepts of geometry
Topics1. Analytic geometry; 2. Lines and angles; 3. Graphs and graphing systems
   Level IV (Grade 9-12)
  Benchmark 1.Understands that objects and relations in geometry correspond directly to objects and relations in algebra (e.g., a line in geometry corresponds to a set of ordered pairs satisfying an equation of the form ax + by = c)
   Vocabulary terms

B.  equation of a line
C.  ordered pair
D.  algebra
E.  equation of a figure
F.  geometry
G.  coordinate plane
  Knowledge/skill statements
  1. Understands a line in geometry corresponds to a set of ordered pairs   
  2. Understands the connections between algebra and geometry   
  3. Knows that ax + by = c is the general equation for a line
