Algebra 1 Performance Tasks on Distance/Calories (Common Core)
Part 1 - Students will use different versions of the D=RT formula to analyze a 3 city road trip.
Part 2 – Students will use equations/functions to describe the number calories a person should consume to maintain/lose weight. The formula includes inputs for weight, height, and age. Students will also convert from customary to metric units. Students will write equations 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
I will be creating similar products for each chapter and all will be included in my algebra bundle. If you want to save money and purchase the bundle, you will be able to receive all the new products as they are created. You will also get all my common core practice tests, midterms, and exams.
