The performance task is an alternative type of assessment that asks students to actively engage in creating a product that demonstrates his knowledge or skills. In this case, students are asked to draft a solution to a problem that illustrates, generalizes, communicates, and verifies their results. It is not so much about the answer as it is about their ability to present a thorough and convincing solution.
Students use multiple methods to explore functions and multi-step equations (in two variables) in the course of two application problems: a carnival conundrum and a sales contest.
The first task asks students to write, interpret and solve a linear system written in standard form. I use it at the conclusion of my unit on systems of equations (Algebra 1: Chapter 7)
The second task incorporates systems into a more comprehensive task in which students create a presentation of sales trends for two competing stores. They must use tables, graphs, and equations to illustrate, analyze, and interpret the situation.
Standards-based grading rubrics are included for both problems. Also included in this unit is a cover page with essential questions, common core standards alignment, student objectives, and teacher notes. Teacher answer keys are also provided.
