Performance Task

Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

Take notes about your classmates' strategies for evaluating the statements on the cards.

As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

  • Did you use equations or expressions to test any of the statements on the cards? If so, how did doing this help you? If not, do you think using expressions or equations is a good idea?
  • How do you think representing this type of data with percent statements helps people interpret data?
  • Suppose a student thinks that the statement about 85% of school-aged children attending school represents a part-part relationship. How could you help the student think about the relationship more clearly?
