Testing Season is almost upon us and I have some new freebies that will warm your heart this Valentines Day!
Bermuda Lawn Care – Middle School
The Bermuda Lawn Care Services – SBAC Performance Task gives students an opportunity to compute unit rates using a real-world geometry problem. Students will find the area of the lawn in square yards, convert those square yards to square feet, calculate the square yards mowed based on time, and money earned based on square yards mowed. They will analyze productivity based on working individually and collaboratively. Students will exhibit competence with math content standards 7.G.6, 7.RP.1, 7.RP.2, 7.EE.2, 7.EE.3, 7.NS.2, 7.NS.3, and mathematical practices standards MP1, MP2, MP4, MP5, MP6, and MP7.
Transformation Road – High School
The Transformation Road Activity & Task gives students an opportunity demonstrate mastery using rotations, reflections, and translations to move an object from one location to another on a coordinate plane. Students will model two separate movement paths using transformations and document these movements using function or coordinate notation. Students will then create an equation or function to describe the movement they created. These findings will be shared with a classmate for collaboration on the similarities, differences, and variables involved. The Transformation Road Activity & Task supports deeper student understanding in the use of transformations, while investigating the outcomes produced by different choices.
Da Vinci Project – Color by Number with Probability for Middle School
The purpose of this probability Da Vinci project is to allow students the opportunity to use creativity to invent a color by number activity that demonstrates mastery of probability. This project focuses on finding probability solutions for simple and compound probabilities using fractions, decimals, percentages, and likelihoods. Students will both create the problem and find the solution. Students will then complete the activity created by a peer and grade the work of the peer using the rubric provided.
Da Vinci Project – Color by Number with Sequences for High School
The purpose of this sequences Da Vinci project is to allow students the opportunity to use creativity to invent a color by number activity that demonstrates mastery of concepts related to arithmetic and geometric sequences. This project focuses on determining common differences and common ratios, finding the next number in a sequence, solving for the term, and deciphering real-life problems that require the use of sequence operations. Students will then complete the activity created by a peer and grade the work of the peer using the rubric provided.
Enjoy a cup of hot cocoa while you lesson plan your way through testing season. Happy Freebies!!
