- Abstract:
- This task was developed by high school and postsecondary mathematics and agriculture 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.

Was not able to align to these standards, but the activity aligns to the following common core standards. N.Q.1 Use units as a way to understand problems and to guide the solution of multi-step problems; choose and interpret

units consistently in formulas; choose and interpret the scale and the origin in graphs and data displays.*

N.Q.2 Define appropriate quantities for the purpose of descriptive modeling.*

N.Q.3 Choose a level of accuracy appropriate to limitations on measurement when reporting quantities.*

6.RP.3d Use ratio reasoning to convert measurement units; manipulate and transform units appropriately when

multiplying or dividing quantities.

7.RP.1 Compute unit rates associated with ratios of fractions, including ratios of lengths, areas, and other quantities

measured in like or different units.

7.RP.3 Use proportional relationships to solve multi-step ratio and percent problems.

7.NS.3 Solve real world problems involving the four operations with rational numbers.

7.EE.3 Solve multi-step real life and mathematical problems posed with positive and negative rational numbers in any

form, using tools strategically. Apply properties of operations to calculate with numbers in any form; convert between

forms as appropriate; and assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies.
