## 7th Grade Formative Assessment Lessons

Some of these Formative Assessment Lessons were created by other states or Kentucky districts. They have been grouped so that the appropriate credit can be given.

*Those**created by Kentucky Department of Education Mathematics Specialists have been field tested by Kentucky teachers participating in the Mathematics Leadership Network.**These are "alpha" versions that have been through at least one revision.*If you encounter errors or would like to make suggestions for revisions, please click**here**to access the contact form.## Kenton Co KY Tasks

## Integer Game Spinners -

This lesson is intended to help you assess how well students are able to use integer operations as

well as theoretical probability models and experimental frequencies. In particular this lesson

aims to identify and help students with difficulties:

This lesson involves mathematical content in the standards from across the grades, with emphasis on:

well as theoretical probability models and experimental frequencies. In particular this lesson

aims to identify and help students with difficulties:

- Adding and multiplying integers
- Choosing an appropriate, systematic way to determine & organize possible outcomes in a probability model
- Comparing theoretical and experimental probabilities

**1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them; 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others; 4. Model with mathematics; 7. Look for and make use of structure.**This lesson involves mathematical content in the standards from across the grades, with emphasis on:

**7.NS Apply and extend previous understandings of operations with fractions to add,****subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers.****7.SP Investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability models.**

## Orange Juice Problem - Middle School Problem Solving FAL

This lesson is intended to help you assess how well students are able to reason proportionally

in a realistic context: the recipe that will result in a stronger orange taste. In particular, this unit

aims to identify and help students who have difficulties with:

This lesson asks students to select and apply mathematical content from across the grades,

including the content standards:

in a realistic context: the recipe that will result in a stronger orange taste. In particular, this unit

aims to identify and help students who have difficulties with:

- Choosing an appropriate, often informal, strategy to solve proportions.
- Seeing how quantities vary together and are able to see how the variation in one coincides with the variation in another.
- Recognizing ratios as distinct entities representing a relationship different from the quantities they compare.

**1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them; 2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively; 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.**This lesson asks students to select and apply mathematical content from across the grades,

including the content standards:

**6-RP: Understand ratio concepts and use ratio reasoning to solve problems.****7-RP: Analyze proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems.**
