# Ideas for Progress: Mathematics, Range 1–12

To enhance their skills in each mathematics-related strand, students who score in the 1–12 score range on the ACT® college readiness assessment may benefit from activities that encourage them to do the following:

Number and Quantity practice and apply estimation and computation, using whole numbers and decimals describe quantities in terms of “parts of a whole” and translate that description into fraction form locate and describe positive integers in terms of their position on the number line choose the appropriate method of computation (e.g., calculator, mental, pencil and paper) to solve multistep mathematical problems model a variety of real-world and mathematical problems with expressions and/or equations use the inverse relationships for the basic operations of addition and subtraction to determine unknown quantities generate simple numerical or pictorial patterns based on a given rule identify line segments in geometric figures and estimate or calculate their lengths practice selecting appropriate units of measure (e.g., inches or feet, hours or minutes, centimeters or meters) and converting between units organize, display, and analyze data in a variety of ways read and interpret data from different displays (e.g., charts, tables) and use the data in computation (e.g., mean, median, mode, range)
