Formative Assessments

Notebooks to Trees:

Students are asked to find the approximate number of trees that are saved by using recycled paper.

Type: Formative Assessment

Fishy Formulas:

Type: Formative Assessment

Lesson Plan

Water Troubles:

This Model Eliciting Activity (MEA) presents students with the real-world problem of contaminated drinking water.  Students are asked to provide recommendations for a non-profit organization working to help a small Romanian village acquire clean drinking water.  They will work to develop the best temporary strategies for water treatment, including engineering the best filtering solution using local materials.  Students will utilize measures of center and variation to compare data, assess proportional relationships to make decisions, and perform unit conversions across different measurement systems.
