A Constructed Response Item provided by Smarter Balanced as preliminary examples of the types of items that students might encounter on the summative assessment. The item prompt students to produce a text or numerical response in order to collect evidence about their knowledge or understanding of using structure of an expression to identify ways to rewrite it and rearrange formulas to highlight a specific quantity of interest.

This task was developed by high school and postsecondary mathematics and health sciences educators, and validated by content experts in the Common Core State Standards in mathematics and the National Career Clusters Knowledge & Skills Statements. It was developed with the purpose of demonstrating how the Common Core and CTE Knowledge & Skills Statements can be integrated into classroom learning - and to provide classroom teachers with a truly authentic task for either mathematics or CTE courses.

This task presents a real-world problem requiring the students to write linear equations to model different cell phone plans. Looking at the graphs of the lines in the context of the cell phone plans allows the students to connect the meaning of the intersection points of two lines with the simultaneous solution of two linear equations.

This lesson unit is intended to help teachers assess how well students ...

This lesson unit is intended to help teachers assess how well students are able to classify solutions to a pair of linear equations by considering their graphical representations. In particular, this unit aims to help teachers identify and assist students who have difficulties in: using substitution to complete a table of values for a linear equation; identifying a linear equation from a given table of values; and graphing and solving linear equations.

This task involves solving equations with rational coefficients, and requires students to ...

This task involves solving equations with rational coefficients, and requires students to use the distributive law ("combine like terms"). The equation also provides opportunities for students to observe structure in the equation to find a quicker solution, as in the second solution presented.

Students will justify steps used in simplifying expressions and solving equations and ...

Students will justify steps used in simplifying expressions and solving equations and inequalities. Justifications will include the use of concrete objects, pictorial representations, and the properties of real numbers, equality, and inequality.

Students use manipulatives to represent visually the steps they take to obtain a solution to an algebraic equation. They develop an understanding of the connections between the solution involving manipulatives and the symbolic solution.

This task can be used to both assess student understanding of systems ...

This task can be used to both assess student understanding of systems of linear equations or to promote discussion and student thinking that would allow for a stronger solidification of these concepts.

Students are given 4-5 coordinate points, that will represent the sheep. First, they are tasked with creating a fence around the sheep. The students will use the endpoints of each piece of fence to compute the slope, y-intercept, domain and equation of the line. They will then code the rover to draw their lines. Finally, the students can calculate the area/perimeter of their fence and calculate the cost to build the fence. The students will then be challenged to minimize the area, perimeter and cost of building their corral, recalculate the equations of their lines, stating their new slope, y-intercept, and domain.

This lesson unit is intended to help you assess how well students ...

This lesson unit is intended to help you assess how well students use algebra in context, and in particular, how well students: explore relationships between variables in everyday situations; find unknown values from known values; find relationships between pairs of unknowns, and express these as tables and graphs; and find general relationships between several variables, and express these in different ways by rearranging formulae.

This task asks students to find the amount of two ingredients in a pasta blend. The task provides all the information necessary to solve the problem by setting up two linear equations in two unknowns.

This lesson unit is intended to help teachers assess how well students ...

This lesson unit is intended to help teachers assess how well students are able to: translate between decimal and fraction notation, particularly when the decimals are repeating; create and solve simple linear equations to find the fractional equivalent of a repeating decimal; and understand the effect of multiplying a decimal by a power of 10.
