This packet contains four sample assessment items for 4th grade Common Core mathematics covering the standard:
CCSS.Math.Content.4.OA.A.3 Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
These assessment items are modeled after those found in the New York State Testing Program's Common Core Sample Questions.
The four problems ask students to write equations describing a problem situation (each question has the unknown in a different place in the equation) and then solve.
The problems could be assigned individually, or the whole packet could be given as a final assessment for this standard or as group work in a formative manner.
