Grocery shopping and the quilt of a math teacher

This unit contains a curriculum-embedded Common Core–aligned task and instructional supports. The task is embedded in a 2–3 week unit on expressions. There is a combination of two tasks that will be administered as this culminating assessment. The "Grocery Shopping" task will assess students' knowledge of representing equivalent expressions and being able to justify this through the use of the distributive property. The second task is "The Quilt of a Math Teacher". This task will assess students' knowledge of formulating an algebraic expression based on a real-life situation, while addressing Mathematical Practice standards as well.
