Product Description
Modding in Minecraft Real World Performance Task for 9th-12th grade

In the Modding in Minecraft Performance Task, students use real data from Minecraft to practice writing and solving linear equations and inequalities, explaining each step of solving an equation and solving equations with literal coefficients in an engaging, real world context. Students take on the role of a video game programmer and develop equations to work in the game's creation mode.


This Performance Task could be completed for one level (explained below) in one lesson only or could be extended with the other levels across 2-3 lessons.


What’s included in this Performance Task:

* Teacher Guide – Get an overview of the Performance Task, including helpful suggestions for use and the skills and standards alignment.

* Level 1 Activity – Laying the foundation. Students start by practicing a key skill matched to a math standard. This portion of the lesson could be used alone to practice this skill.

* Level 2 Activity – Adding some complexity. Students integrate a different skill or set of skills which they apply to the context of the task.

* Challenge Activity – Bring on the critical thinking! Students are stretched to reason with math and data to come to conclusions working at Webb's Depth of Knowledge levels 3-4. They might work in groups or this could be used as an extension activity.

* Finale Activities – Extend the learning. Each Performance Task also includes a selection of options to extend the math lesson into another subject (usually ELA).

* Complete Answer Key – All Performance Tasks come with a complete answer key for all activities.

* Job Background – Each Performance Task enables students to picture themselves in a real world career. Information about the career is given, including entry-level education, median pay, and job outlook.

* Glossary - Where new domain-specific vocabulary is used, a student-friendly glossary is included.

This task comes with both a teacher and student print-out. The teacher print-out includes a teacher guide and answer key.
