Standards-based assessment and Instruction

The instructional/formative assessment tasks in Problem Solving for the Common Core have been differentiated to include a "more accessible" and a "more challenging" version of the original problem. This feature allows teachers to meet the needs of students at various levels as they explore and practice new math concepts.

## Grade 2 Sample

Joe and Jane collect the same kinds of stuffed animals. Joe has forty-eight monkeys, twenty-five bears, and sixty-seven dogs. Jane looks at Joe's collection and says she has the same number of stuffed animals. Jane has thirty-four monkeys and fifty-eight bears. How many dogs does Jane have? Show all your mathematical thinking.
