MARS/Performance Tasks

Collection Contents


Susie is organizing the printing of tickets for a show. She has collected prices from several printers. Your task is to use graphs and algebra to advise Susie on how to choose the best printer. (This task is very similar to Best Buy Tickets, but offers more step-by-step guidance.)

Sidewalk Stones

by Cidalia Azevedo

In Prague some sidewalks are made of small square blocks of stone. The blocks are in different shades to make patterns that are in various sizes. In this task, you will look for rules which let you work out how many blocks of different colors are needed to make different sized patterns. (This task is very similar to Sidewalk Patterns, but offers less step-by-step guidance.)

Mosaics

by Cidalia Azevedo

Standard for Mathematical Practice #4 calls for students to model with mathematics. Students should be using the mathematics they know to solve problems that arise in everyday life. This task presents a situation in which tiles are used to create mosaics in a growing pattern. Students are asked to represent the relationship between the mosaic number and the number of tiles in the mosaic using multiple mathematical representations, making connections between the situation and the mathematical representations clear. Students use their models to answer questions and make predictions about the situation, and adjust their models based on changes in the situation.
