Chapter 3 Performance Assessment

The fifth grade class is going on a field trip to the art museum. 1. School policy states that there should be one adult chaperone for every 9 students. If 164 students are attending, how many adult chaperones are needed? Explain how you found your answer.

2. Admission to the museum is $4 for students and $6 for adults. Explain how you could use order of operations to find the total cost of admission for the group.

3. If the group is to be divided as evenly as possible among 8 buses, how many people should ride in each bus?

4. The buses cost $50 each per day. Explain how you could use order of operations to find the total cost of the field trip including admission and transportation.

5. How can the class raise money to cover the cost of the field trip? Describe something they could sell, how many they need to sell, and how much they should charge for each.

6. How many people are going on the field trip, including students and adult chaperones? Can all the people be divided equally into 3 groups to tour the museum? Can they be divided into 4 groups? 5 groups? Explain why or why not for each.

Teacher Notes
Skills and Concepts This activity requires students to: • multiply and divide whole numbers. • interpret remainders. • use divisibility rules. • use order of operations. Guiding the Activity • It may be interesting to students for you to discuss your school’s policy on chaperones. • How do you interpret the remainder when calculating chaperones? Why? Answers 1. 19 chaperones; Sample answer: 164 9 18 R2. One additional chaperone is needed for the extra 2 students. 2. $770; (164 $4) (19 $6) $656 $114 $770 3. 183 8 22 R7. So, 7 buses should have 23 people each and one bus should have 22 people. 4. (8 $50) $770 $400 $770 $1,170 5. Answers will vary. A sample answer is shown. Each class member attending could pay $5. This would raise $820 and reduce the total cost to $350. The class members could sell fruit cakes donated by parents. If 39 fruit cakes are donated, they could sell them for $9 and have $1 extra. 6. 183 people; Since 1 8 3 12 and 12 is divisible by 3, 183 is divisible by 3. So, the people can be divided into 3 equal groups. Since the last two digits of 183 are not divisible by 4, (and 183 is odd), 183 is not divisible by 4. Therefore, the people cannot be divided into 4 equal groups. Since 183 does not end in 0 or 5, it is not divisible by 5. Therefore, the people cannot be divided into 5 equal groups.

Scoring Rubric
Level 4 Standard to be achieved for performance at specified level Full Achievement The student correctly multiplied, divided, and used the order of operations. The student showed a thorough understanding of how to interpret remainders and how to use divisibility rules. Explanations were well written. Substantial Achievement The student made only minor errors when multiplying, dividing, and using the order of operations. The student showed understanding of how to interpret remainders and how to use divisibility rules. Explanations were basically well written, but not thorough. Partial Achievement The student made errors when multiplying, dividing, and using the order of operations. The student showed some understanding of how to interpret remainders and how to use divisibility rules. Explanations were fairly complete, but not well written. Little Achievement The student gave answers that were incomplete or had many errors. The student showed little understanding of how to interpret remainders and how to use divisibility rules. Explanations were missing or unclear.
