2Alternative AssessmentPart 1: Alternative AssessmentClass/SubjectMathematics Grade levelThird GradeStandard“CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.MD.A.1”“Tell and write time to the nearest minute and measure time intervals in minutes. Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of time intervals in minutes, e.g., by representing the problem on a number line diagram.”Learning objectiveStudents will be able to demonstrate how to find the elapsed time between any two times. They can determine a difference in time with using either a digital clock or analog clock. A word problem is another thing that can helpdetermine elapsed times. Students will be able to analyze world problem, highlighting or underlining important facts and key words to determine the elapsed time. Description of alternative assessmentIt will be a project that begins at the beginning of the year and goes to the end of the year. This project allows the students, teachers, and parents see their progress and work. It is very interactive, colorful, and will have lots ofvisuals. This project will be a math notebook with important math rules, math charts, math terms, glued math worksheets, etc. This notebook will be one that they can work on throughout the school year and can also look back onwhenever they would like. Throughout the school year we will constantly add notes, classwork, and rules to the notebook. Most things will be lessonsand practice problems, but some items will be graded. I will collect their notebooks every Friday and check their work for understanding, and
3Alternative Assessmentnotetaking. For this particular lesson they will glue a clock in their notebook for reference to come back to and use if necessary, as a visual. They will write down word problems from the board or put worksheets in their notebook and then explain how they found the elapsed time between two times.
