Algebra 1 Performance Task Alternate Energy Sources Scenario (Common Core – PARCC)
Students will use equations/functions to compare the costs of buying electricity form the electric company, installing solar panels, installing wind turbines, or a hybrid combination of these sources. Students will write equations, interpret tables, and make conclusions based on their work.
I use this performance task (aka investigative task) for Algebra 1 Chapter 1. This is perfect if you are trying to prepare students for Common Core performance tasks or the PARCC, SBAC, AIR Tests. I usually have students complete these in groups (collaborative learning). All tasks have a key included.
The goal is to prepare students for the type of questions found on common core standardized assessments like the PARCC/Smart Balanced/AIR/STAAR
