Chapter 4 Performance Assessment

Malinda is building a house and wants to tile the entry hall. The diagram shows the dimensions of the hall.

8 ft 2 in. 4 ft 4.5 in.

1. What are the measurements of the length and width of the hall in inches? (Hint: There are 12 inches in a foot.)

2. Malinda likes the two tiles shown below. Find how many of each tile would be needed along the length of the hall, along the width, and in all. Assume one tile can be cut into two partial tiles. Explain how you found your answers.

Ceramic tile 14 x 14 in. $5.45 each Ceramic tile 15 x 15 in. $6.35 each

3. Find the total cost of tiling the entry with each tile. Explain what you did. Which tiles should Malinda buy, based on cost alone?

Teacher Notes

Concepts and Skills This activity requires students to: • multiply and divide whole numbers and decimals. • convert measurement units. • find the area of a rectangle. • interpret remainders. • use reasoning to make decisions about area. Guiding the Activity • You may wish to discuss methods for converting from feet to inches. • An interesting discussion might be how the calculations would change if grout were used with the tiles.

Scoring Rubric

Level 4 Standard to be achieved for performance at specified level Full Achievement The student correctly changed measurement units, calculated numbers of tiles and costs, interpreted remainders, and reasoned about area. Explanations were well written. Substantial Achievement The student made only minor errors when changing measurement units, calculating numbers of tiles and costs, interpreting remainders, and reasoning about area. Explanations were basically well written but not thorough. Partial Achievement The student made errors when changing measurement units, calculating numbers of tiles and costs, interpreting remainders, and reasoning about area. Explanations were fairly complete, but not well written. Little Achievement The student gave answers that were incomplete or had many errors. Explanations were missing or unclear. No Achievement The student provided a completely incorrect response, one that was not interpretable, or no response at all.

Answers 1. 98 inches; 52.5 inches 2 2. 14 14 tiles: 98 14 7, Malinda needs 7 tiles along the length. 52.5 14 3.75, Malinda needs 4 tiles along the width. 7 4 28, Malinda needs 28 tiles in all. 15 15 tiles: 1 98 15 6 R8, Since 8 is more than half of 15, Malinda needs 7 tiles along the length. 52.5 15 3.5, Malinda needs 3.5 tiles along the width. 0 7 3.5 24.5, Malinda needs 25 tiles in all. 3. 28 $5.45 $152.60 The 14 14 inch tiles cost $152.60. 25 $6.35 $158.75 The 15 15 inch tiles cost $158.75. Sample answer: Malinda should buy the 14 14 inch tiles because they are a little cheaper than the 15 15 inch tiles. They also require less cutting which may save on labor costs. 4. Sample answers: Malinda might have her builder increase the size of the hall by increasing the width of the hall to 56 inches, or 4 ft. 8 in., without increasing the cost of either the 14 14 inch tiles or the 15 15 inch tiles. She could also increase the width to 60 inches and use the 15 15 inch tiles without increasing the cost of the 15 15 inch tile choice.
