Make Connections

Performance Task

Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

  • Take notes during the class discussion about how to solve for both distance and time.
  • Answer questions about the methods you used to solve the problem.


As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

  • Where do you see the rate 5 meters per second in your methods? Where do you see the answer?
  • What operation did you use and why?
  • Can you explain your solution in terms of the unit: what are the units of the rate, and how did the seconds cancel out?
