In the final post of our Summer Series, we look in on a fifth grader mastering the standard 5.NBT.2 in the Common Core domain Number and Operations in Base Ten.
In this blog we’re tackling a task at the third-grade level, Bracelets to Sell, where students explore a CCSSM from the Operations and Algebraic Thinking domain. We’ll review a student’s solution to see how it relates to the Exemplars rubric criteria and if a math connection is made.
Teachers are thrilled to have so many real-world tasks at their finger tips that are grouped by specific Common Core Standards. It is apparent that Exemplars gave a great deal of thought and consideration when designing this resource - it is intuitive and incredibly well organized. And most importantly, Problem Solving for the Common Core provides the rich learning opportunities for students that we were looking for.
