Are your students taking PARCC this year? PARCC consists of math extended responses (MER) the students will have to complete. In my own classroom we complete at least two extended response each week. We attempt to complete one together as a class and then I provide the students with a homework MER. I have my class divided into three levels. Level 1- this is my beginner level MER, Level 2- has a basic understanding and we are working toward mastery, Level 3- mastery

Three levels of word problems
