Scenario:
The depth of water at the end of a pier varies with the tides. On a particular day, the low tides
occur at 2:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. with a depth of 1.1 meters. The high tides occur at 8:00 a.m. and
8:00 p.m. with a dept

Examples of Performance Tasks
Performance tasks should be interesting to the student and well connected to the important
content, process skills, and work habits of the curriculum. Sometimes students can help in
constructing these tasks and assessment lis

MATHEMATICS LEARNING & TEACHING
Task 1
Introduction:
In the twenty-first century, mathematics education must take on a different form. Teachers are no
longer expected to simply be a dispenser of information; new models of teaching and learning
are needed

Task 2
Requirements:
A. Plan how you would implement a secondary-level, problem-based lesson covering a topic
related to functions by doing the following:
1. Provide an appropriate problem that you selected, created, or mod

You probably dont think about pizza on a regular basis. Wait! Some of you do. Pizzerias think
about different types of pizzas, arrangements of ingredients, sauces, crusts, and more. The
business of making pizzas is more than just baking and putting pepper

The questions
are designed to serve as a
model for self-questioning
and self-explanations which is
useful because some students
dont do this naturally. The
questions represent and mimic
an internal dialog about the
mathematics and the strategies.

Note trunc means truncate or drop decimals. Your professor may dispute rounding 49.07 UP to 50 because normal rounding procedures
suggest that this should round down. However since we are talking safety here, the depth at 4:49 is not adequate. ONLY at 4:4
