Students will help Ronnie Rabbit figure out the volume of several jelly bean containers in preparation for a party. They will use the formula for volume, find missing measurements, find percent of a number, and build a model. Students will utilize metacognition to explain their thinking in constructed response questions, synthesize what they know, and utilize strategic thinking as they work through Webb's Depth of Knowledge (DOK) levels.
This Performance Task will help your students prepare for the Smarter Balanced assessment. It covers Standards for Mathematical Practices (SMP) 1-6, and Common Core Content Standards (CCSS) in Math 4.MD.2, 5.MD.3, 5.MD.4, 5.MD.5, 6.G.2, and 6.G.4.
