## Mar 16, 2014

**Sixth Grade**

Mathematical Tasks

**-**Numerous tasks set up in Word docouments to download for grade 6-8. Includes setting up process, support process and sharing and discussing task.
Mathematical Tasks - Many
math problems on various skills are available here to download. Could use these
for morning bell work.

No Calculator Asssessment -
Assessment tests with various tasks. Fractions and Decimals

Lessons for Learning -
E-booklet with multiple tasks for grade 6 using numerous standards per lesson.

First Rate - Problem
solving: 4 levels ; determining how two students working together at different
rates can work together to complete a task.

Candies - Students use
these skills to solve these problems: understand and describe fractions and
solve ratio problems.

Once upon a Time - In level
C, students are given a problem that requires an understanding of divisibility
and may be determined by using knowledge of relatively prime factors.

Cake Weighing - 4 part
task; Students extend their previous understandings of number and the ordering
of numbers to the full system of rational numbers, which includes negative
rational numbers, and in particular negative integers.

MARS Tasks - These formative performance
assessment tasks are from the Mathematics Assessment Resource Service (MARS), a
project of UC Berkeley, Michigan State, and the Shell Centre in Nottingham
England. These tasks use the old Math format but can easily be seen as CCSS
standards tasks.

Gasoline Consumption -
Students work to represent and solve a problem, and then reason from those
representations to make comparisons and draw conclusions.

Inside Mathmatics - Many various tasks for 6th grade CCSS;
standard numbers given by tasks.

Practice Test - Sign in as a guest and take a
practice test in Math or ELA. Select your grade level in the box marked select
grade.

Seventh Grade

MARS Tasks - These formative performance
assessment tasks are from the Mathematics Assessment Resource Service (MARS), a
project of UC Berkeley, Michigan State, and the Shell Centre in Nottingham
England. These tasks use the old Math format but can easily be seen as CCSS
standards tasks.

Inside Mathmatics - Many various tasks for 7th grade CCSS;
standard numbers given by tasks.

Anne's Family Trip - In the
task, students apply securely held content from previous grades (decimal
operations) to solve a problem involving rate and elapsed time.

The Pentagon Problem -
Solving problems relating to using the measures of the exterior and interior
angles of polygons.

Proportional Reasoning -
Students use proportional relationships to solve multi-step ratio and percent
problems.

Leaky Faucets - Students
will analyze proportional relationships and use them to create equations,
compute unit rates, and sketch graphs of relationships on the coordinate plane.

School Supplies - Students
apply their understanding of rational numbers to solve a contextual problem.

Piece It Together -
Students use two and three dimensional geometry to solve problems involving
polygons and polyhedra.

Spicy Veggies - This
two-part task presents a recipe context in an atypical way that requires
students to demonstrate a deep understanding of proportionality to be successful.
Instead of simply listing amounts for each ingredient, the recipe describes how
the ingredients are related to the whole. Students must reason proportionally
with fractions to solve each part of the task.

Rational Numbers - 3 week
unit plan to help deepen their understanding of rational numbers in various
forms.

Practice Test - Sign in as a guest and take a
practice test in Math or ELA. Select your grade level in the box marked select
grade.

Eighth Grade

Eighth Grade

MARS Tasks - These formative performance
assessment tasks are from the Mathematics Assessment Resource Service (MARS), a
project of UC Berkeley, Michigan State, and the Shell Centre in Nottingham
England. These tasks use the old Math format but can easily be seen as CCSS
standards tasks.

200 Freestyle -This task asks students to analyze
graphs of functions and interpret rates of change, intersections, and points on
the curves of different functions.

Practice Test - Sign in as a guest and take a
practice test in Math or ELA. Select your grade level in the box marked select
grade.

The Picture Frame Problem -
This task asks students to analyze graphs of functions and interpret rates of
change, intersections, and points on the curves of different functions.

Smarter Balanced Assessment
- Grade 08 Mathematics Sample Items.

Vincent's Graphs This task challenges a student to use understanding of functions to interpret and draw graphs.
