This assessment mixes a number of concepts as part of the problem solving component. Students will need to have a good sense of perimeter, area, algebraic fractions, forming equations from word problems, and a little bit of basic financial mathematics. The problem sets a context where students can grow their own vegetables at the school and then sell them to the school.
