Students will engage in an exploration of how triangles can be used to figure out the sum of angles in a polygon. In Part A, they will first be guided towards identifying the relationship between the number of sides in a polygon and the number of triangles that make the polygon. In Part B, students, in a more open-ended task will look for the relationship that connects the number of sides in a polygon and the sum of angles of the polygon.

The A-sized paper range many of us use for printing actually has various unique patterns that are interrelated. This is a nice assessment because it allows students to investigate a real-world phenomenon that has several relationships. In part A students will explore how the length, width, and the ratio between the dimensions all have patterns. In Part B students will explore a made-up currency that also has a pattern to its length, width, and ratio that can be shown by the change of denomination.

This is a great assessment for exploring multiple relationships and rules stemming from one pattern. The scenario shows a pattern of geometric shape embedded into another shape, with the shapes being able to be measured in size based on unit measurements. In Part A students will explore relationships of different variables about square greeneries. Then, in Part B students will go through an unguided investigation of greeneries in the size of a rectangle.

This assessment is meant to measure the ability of students to be able to identify the rules in a new number system they haven’t seen before. Students will need to determine the rules for how a number system works given the beginning of its sequence (Part A) or part of the middle of a sequence (Part B). After finding the rules, students will verify that their rules work by completing some conversion exercise to and from the Hindu-Arabic System.
