This bundle contains Algebra I application problems that assess every Algebra standard in Unit 1 of the traditional pathway of the Common Core Standards, Relationships Between Quantities and Reasoning with Equations, with answer keys and rubrics! They are also fully editable. Unit 1 focuses specifically on linear equations and simple exponential equations.
There are two multi-step problems for each Algebra standard in Unit 1 (A.SSE.1, A.CED.1 through 4, A.REI.1, and A.REI.3). Each problem has at least four parts, and requires students to explain their thinking and use the math practices.
In A.SSE.1, students interpret expressions. In A.CED.1 through 4, working with linear and simple exponential functions, students create one- and two-variable equations, represent and interpret modeling situations, and rearrange formulas to solve for a variable. In A.REI.1 and 3, students describe the process for solving an equation and solve linear inequalities and literal equations. In addition, the three Number and Quantity standards are embedded in the problems. These problems encourage your students to connect math to the real world while making sure you stay aligned to the common core. A link to each individual product is listed below:
The preview file for this bundle includes one full problem, rubric and answer key as a sample of the included problems.
These problems are fantastic for comprehensive pre- and post-assessment, common assessment across classrooms, as progress checks, or as extra practice. Want to make sure your students know what Common Core says they should? Successful completion of these problems demonstrates mastery of the corresponding standards!
Each problem is based on an application, and includes links to the Common Core math practices!
RUBRICS are included on a 4, 3, 2, 1 standards-based grading scale, as well as descriptions of where the NQ standards are embedded, as well as math practices that each problem covers.
ANSWER KEYS are also included!
