It is possible for them to both be correct. If lina rounds to the nearest ten thousand,

he gets 29,000 feet for everest and 28,000 for the others.
Part C
The fifth highest mountain is Makalu. Its height, rounded to the nearest hundred, is
27,800 feet. What is the highest that this mountain can be? How do you know?

The tallest Makalu can be is 27,849 feet. If it were 27,850 feet (or taller), then its
height rounded to the nearest hundred would be 27,900 feet.

## Performance Task Sample Responses and Rubric

4-Point Solution
Dear Ms. Principal,
The students at your school have read about 495,000 minutes in the last four months. This is almost halfway to the
million minute mark! Since you didnt want an exact answer, I rounded each grades minutes to the nearest thousand.
Then I added up all of these rounded numbers to come up with 495,000.
First Second Third Fourth Fifth 98,000
Number of Minutes 98,050 30,451 100,870 145,689 120,270 101,000

1 120,000
495,000 minutes
It took the students four months to reach the halfway mark. If they keep reading at this rate, they will need about
another four months to reach their goal.
Very truly yours,
Hannah

## Reflect on Mathematical Practices

1. Look for an understanding that the principals request for an approximation explains why rounding is the first
step of the solution. (SMP 1)
2. Look for explanations that rounding makes the addition easier and helps you to make good estimates. (SMP 2)

Scoring Rubric
4 points The students answer is accurate and the explanation given in the letter is complete and easy to understand.
Numbers are rounded correctly and then added without error. The letter shows a good understanding of
estimation and it includes a greeting and signature.
3 points The students answer is accurate. Numbers were rounded correctly and then added without error. The
student may have had difficulty explaining her or his reasoning in the letter provided to the principal.
Language used may imply that the numbers and prediction are exact rather than estimates.
2 points The students answer is incorrect. Rounding or addition is shown with errors. A letter is provided with some
of the required elements.
1 point The students answer is incorrect. There are errors in rounding and adding, or no work is shown. The prediction
for when the goal is reached is either incorrect or missing. The letter is incomplete or does not include an
explanation of how the student found the answer.
