Students will be able to apply a real world basketball game example to practice their math skills in a performance task. The first page will briefly explain some basketball rules and show a diagram describing a scenario in which students will have to analyze to answer math questions. Teachers can choose to give out either page 2 or 3 to go along with the basketball scenario (depends what you are teaching at the time). Page 2 includes questions that require students to make expressions and equations while page 3 is focused on students using their understanding of fractions. Whether you use page 2 or 3, students will have to evaluate what information from the scenario is needed to come to a solution.
I have used this performance task as group work during math centers. All my students enjoyed struggling with this task because challenged them and most had strong background knowledge in Basketball.
