Bermuda Lawn Care Service SBAC Performance Task – PBL with Math

The purpose of the Bermuda Lawn Care Service – SBAC Performance Task is to familiarize students with math performance tasks in preparation for standardized testing. This task has a multitude of applications. There are six versions of the task, each has the same context but different numbers. You can use these as class activities, proficiency practice, or quizzes.

This 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.
