The problems and activities within this document are designed to assist students in achieving the standards for mathematics practice, and hence being prepared for success on the PARCC. They are also designed to help the teacher assess the students’ abilities when it comes to working with the ideas within the standards.
This document contains a multi-step modeling problem that involves a real world situation, and addresses the following geometry common core standards:
G.CO.5 (sequences of transformations)
G.CO.6 (congruence concepts)
G.CO.7 (congruence in general)
G.CO.8 (triangle congruence criteria)
G.CO.10 (triangle proofs & theorems)
Students are also required to apply their knowledge of proportional reasoning to solve the problem.
This can be used as an example, guided practice, class work, independent practice, homework, or any assessment (quiz, test, review, or even part of a project).
About my Products:
While the PARCC assesses many of the mathematical practice standards, I aim to create many problems and activities that require students to apply the skills outlined in the performance level descriptors. I believe that the more students are exposed to such types of work, the more likely they are to develop a conceptual understanding of the concepts & of their own learning, succeed on the PARCC, and hence the more likely they are to be prepared for success in college and/or their future careers. If you happen to have any questions or concerns regarding anything your purchase (or download for free), please do not hesitate to contact me! Have a wonderful school year! :)
