This is a sample PARCC assessment task based on CCSS grade 3 operations and algebraic thinking standards as well as the measurement and data standards. In this interactive multistep task students must write a number sentence that can be used to find how many tiles high the mural is at school and then show the value of the Distributive Property in solving a problem. Included are the alignments to the CCSS, a scoring rubric and background on the task itself.

This interactive applet helps students develop proportional reasoning in the context of using foot length to predict height. The player is challenged to find the height of several adult dragons by using clues that provide foot length of babies and relationships of babies' foottoheight, and then measuring babytoadult foot ratio.

This Sketchpad activity, which opens on Geometer's Sketchpad as well as on iOS with Sketchbook Explorer (cataloged separately), allows learners to use logic and early algebra reasoning skills to find the secret numerical value of four letters, which are initially from 110, but this upper limit can be changed. Players drag any two letters across a divider to the right to reveal their sum. Students can play the game multiple times, with the computer generating new random values, or they can create challenges for each other to solve. A movie provides detailed instructions and downloadable PDF of teacher notes and student worksheets are also included.

This interactive Flash applet enables students, using estimation and measurement skills, to investigate angles. Teachers can use this page for demonstrating how to read a protractor, and the protractor can be hidden to give students practice in estimating angle measures. The size of the angle can be controlled or chosen randomly.

This professional development video clip shows students in a bilingual classroom engaged in the Common Core Practice Standard #3Construct viable arguments for conclusions reached and critique the reasoning of others. Students observe ladybugs and collect data in order to answer quantitative questionsWhat is the the number of antennae, heads, mouths, feet, and wings. The individual data is compiled into a class chart and the learners compare and discuss data as a class. Additional resources include a video transcript, teaching tips, and a link to a professional development reflection activity based upon the video.

This interactive Java applet allows the user to practice calculating an ending time or a beginning time given the elapsed time using analog or digital clocks. Using the "See" mode the user advances (or rewinds) a clock from the given time using the elapsed time to find the ending (or beginning) time. Using the "Guess" mode, the user must calculate the ending (or beginning) time given the elapsed time. Three difficulty levels allow the user to practice with hour, five minute, or single minute increments. An optional scoring feature allows the user to keep track of number correct.

This problem introduces repeated doubling in the context of a plant with branches that split into 2 more branches every week. The problem lays the foundation for understanding exponential growth and lends itself to a variety of representations. The Teachers' Notes page offers rationale, suggestions for implementation, discussion questions, and ideas for extension and support.

In this cooperative learning activity students participate in a simulation of a parachute jump competition by making paper Whirlybirds, and then dropping them towards a target ( wooden block) on the floor. Students measure the distance the whirlybird is from the target for each drop, display their data in a table, and create a frequency fraction for each "zone" of measurement (Zones are categorized into 10 centimeter intervals). Mean, mode and median are also calculated and students analyze the data to determine the frequency of a parachutist hitting a target area.

In this interactive game, students collect cards as they journey through the maze of a house (Fraction Manor), avoiding monsters. With each level they complete, they are presented with a math puzzle: given a series of digits, arrange them into fractions in a given order. Some fractions may already be given. Puzzles increase in difficulty with each level.

This engaging web site contains information and interactive applets related to various number systems: Egyptian, Babylonian, Chinese, Greek, Roman, Mayan, and Arabic. Users learn the history and structure of each system as well as how to count and write numbers. The site also allows users to explore finger systems, calculating machines, other number bases, and "interesting numbers." A series of pages on data and graphs includes information and activities on gathering, analyzing, graphing and sorting data. (Because the section on the Arabic number system is so extensive, it is cataloged separately as a related resource.)

This problem requires a sound understanding of the fraction relationship between part and whole and can be used for finding fractions of numbers and quantities. Students are given the fractional amount of apples in a fruit bowl and the specific number of other fruit in the bowl in order to figure out how many apples are in the bowl. The Teachers' Notes page includes suggestions for implementation, discussion questions, ideas for extension, a link to a worksheet which provides student support, and a downloadable pdf of the puzzle.
