Challenge your students to create and use one variable linear and simple exponential equations in the contexts of planning a train ride and measuring bounce height, and use the included rubric and answer key to understand what they know and if they meet Common Core standards! Use for practice, assessment, and more!
This product contains two multi-step application problems, focusing on creating one-variable linear expressions and one-variable exponential expressions (integers only for exponential). These are the two components to the Common Core Algebra 1 Unit 1 standard A.CED.1. These problems encourage your students to connect math to the real world while making sure you stay aligned to the common core.
These problems are fantastic for pre- and post-assessment, common assessment across classrooms, as progress checks, or as extra practice. Want to make sure your students know what Common Core says they should? Successful completion of these problems demonstrates mastery of the corresponding standards!
Each problem is based on an application, and includes links to the Common Core math practices!
RUBRICS are also included on a 4, 3, 2, 1 standards-based grading scale for standard A.CED.1, as well as descriptions of other standards and math practices that each problem covers.
A KEY is also included!
More standards to come!
