This is a task from the Illustrative Mathematics website that is one part of a complete illustration of the standard to which it is aligned. Each task has at least one solution and some commentary that addresses important asects of the task and its potential use. Here are the first few lines of the commentary for this task: Julianna participated in a walk-a-thon to raise money for cancer research. She recorded the total distance she walked at several different points in ti...

This task asks the students to solve a real-world problem involving unit rates (data per unit time) using units that many teens and pre-teens have heard of but may not know the definition for. While the computations involved are not particularly complex, the units will be abstract for many students.

This series of 5 word problems lead up to the final problem. Most students should be able to answer the first two questions without too much difficulty. The decimal numbers may cause some students trouble, but if they make a drawing of the road that the girls are riding on, and their positions at the different times, it may help. The third question has a bit of a challenge in that students won't land on the exact meeting time by making a table with distance values every hour. The fourth question addresses a useful concept for problems involving objects moving at different speeds which may be new to sixth grade students.

This Check Your Readiness Assessment is used in conjunction with the Illustrative Mathematics Curriculum. It breaks down identifying the Essential Standard associated. This assessment should be utilized with the uploaded rubric to determine levels of prerequisite skills when beginning a new unit and allow for placement of interventions.

This Check Your Readiness Rubric is used in conjunction with the Illustrative Mathematics Curriculum. It breaks down each question by identifying the Essential Standard associated and then defining what an Advanced, Proficient, Basic or Below Basic student response would entail. This rubric can then be utilized to determine levels of prerequisite skills when beginning a new unit and allow for placement of interventions.

In this lesson, students will learn about what nutrition requirements a school needs to abide by for snacks and drinks for a middle school vending machine. Learners will work together to come up with additional options that are cheaper and healther for a local middle school's vending machine. By engageing in a decision matrix, one new snack and one new drink will presented to the principal.

This lesson unit is intended to help sixth grade teachers assess how well students are able to: Analyze a realistic situation mathematically; construct sight lines to decide which areas of a room are visible or hidden from a camera; find and compare areas of triangles and quadrilaterals; and calculate and compare percentages and/or fractions of areas.

In some textbooks, a distinction is made between a ratio, which is assumed to have a common unit for both quantities, and a rate, which is defined to be a quotient of two quantities with different units (e.g. a ratio of the number of miles to the number of hours). No such distinction is made in the common core and hence, the two quantities in a ratio may or may not have a common unit. However, when there is a common unit, as in this problem, it is possible to add the two quantities and then find the ratio of each quantity with respect to the whole (often described as a part-whole relationship).

This lesson is part of a series of lessons that indigenize math education by including an art of the Native American tribes of Wisconsin-Menominee, Oneida, Ojibway, Ho Chunk and Stockbridge-Munsee. Beading has become ubiquitous in indigenous culture and is a modern art form. This context may be familiar to indigenous students as well as others. The unit starts with ratio identification and writing and moves to solving ratio reasoning problems, rate reasoning problems, and ends with graphing relationships. These are meant to supplement or replace current lessons.

This lesson is called Cedar's Beading Supplies as a context for solving rate problems.

Riding at a Constant Speed focuses primarily on application of ratio and rate reasoning to solve problems. The problem presents Lin riding a bike at a constant speed: 20 miles in 150 minutes. The resource uses students' apply their initial understanding of ratios and rates to solve a real-life problem. The task uses friendly numbers so students can easily develop different solution strategies (unit rate, double number line, table, graph) to solve the problem. While the resource does not explicitly mention it, this task has potential to discuss the different representations and have students make connections among them.

This is the first and most basic problem in a series of …

This is the first and most basic problem in a series of seven problems, all set in the context of a classroom election. Every problem requires students to understand what ratios are and apply them in a context. The problems build in complexity and can be used to highlight the multiple ways that one can reason about a context involving ratios.

This is the second in a series of tasks that are set in the context of a classroom election. It requires students to understand what ratios are and apply them in a context. The simple version of this question just asked how many votes each gets. This has the extra step of asking for the difference between the votes.

This problem, the third in a series of tasks set in the …

This problem, the third in a series of tasks set in the context of a class election, is more than just a problem of computing the number of votes each person receives. In fact, that isnŐt enough information to solve the problem. One must know how many votes it takes to make one half of the total number of votes. Although the numbers are easy to work with, there are enough steps and enough things to keep track of to lift the problem above routine.

This is the fourth in a series of tasks about ratios set …

This is the fourth in a series of tasks about ratios set in the context of a classroom election. What makes this problem interesting is that the number of voters is not given. This information isnŐt necessary, but at first glance some students may believe it is.
