In this PBL packet students will plan a track meet either for their class or for the school.  The Driving Question Is: “How can we plan a track meet for our school?”

Activity #1: Students will look at the USAFT Track Meet for 2019 and use elapsed time to see how long events were broadcast.

Activity #2: Students will look at some Middle School Mile Data from a school in Kansas and will round the students time to the nearest minute.  They will then add the times and divide to find the average (they could use a calculator to divide depending on your level of students.)

Activity #3: Students will then look at some Middle School Track data and continue to find the average time so they know how long to plan events for their own track meet.

Activity #4: After students have found those average times they will use multiplication to see how long the event  would take with multiple heats.

Activity #5:  There are brainstorming sheets for students to think about how we can use this information to run our own track meet.

Activity #6:  Students will make a schedule for the track meet they will run based on what they have learned.

Activity #7: Students will critique and revise their schedules.

Activity #8:  Have the track meet.  You will have to add in lots of discussion and planning but their aren’t pages for this because it will really focus on your students ideas.

This packet is very heavy in elapsed time and addition, multiplication, rounding, and division (with or without a calculator) are skills that are also used!

Fluently add and subtract within 1000 using strategies and algorithms based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
Use place value understanding to round whole numbers to the nearest 10 or 100.
Tell and write time to the nearest minute and measure time intervals in minutes. Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of time intervals in minutes, e.g., by representing the problem on a number line diagram.
