This unique performance assessment offers students a choice of three tasks (forming a tic-tac-toe). Tasks vary in difficulty and give students creative ways to express their understanding of concepts aligned with the common core.
Concepts include the following:
Writing and solving equations
Writing, solving and graphing inequalities
Writing and simplifying algebraic expressions
Comparing taking 30% off an original price to paying 70% of the original price
Describing situations where it could be beneficial to use a fraction or a percent to find a part of a number.
Some of the tasks:
Creating and decorating an equation puzzle (using a worksheet included in this assessment)
Writing a conversation between a percent and a fraction
Writing and explaining solutions to equations and inequalities
The three tasks can be put together in a variety of ways (poster, booklet) and can be presented to the class.
This assessment is included in the following bundle:
