Summative Assessments Description ,including method. When used?

Understanding what a liner function is. Understanding what the slope of a line means. Understanding what the rise of a slope means Understanding what the run of a line means. Define the slope of a line based on the rise and run. Being able to identify a linear equation in the slope-intercept form. Students are able to identify what a data point is. Students are able to identify when give data points are nonlinear. Students are able to identify a linear equation written in the slope-point form. Students understand that predictions can be made based on the given data. Students are able to create linear equations using the data gathered to determine the slope of a line. Students are able to write a linear equation given the lines slope and 1 data point. Students understand how to write a linear equation given 2 data points. Students understand how to approximate a linear equation when given nonlinear data. Students understand how to construct a linear equation in the slope-point form.

Students are able to make predictions based on linear models of data. Students are able to take nonlinear data points, construct a linear model approximating this data, and use this model can be used to predict data points other than those given. Using guided instruction- the class as a 'hole 'ill 'or% through comple* e*amples( =eflection on ho' the students performed 'ill be used to the effecti!eness of the lessons( A unit test 'ill be gi!en consisting of problems similar to those 'or%ed in independent study and on the 0ui88es( The scores from the testthe 0ui88es- and the :oicethreads 'ill be used to determine the students? unit grades(

Students will be divided into work groups of four to five. Each student will demonstrate complete understanding of linear equations by creating a Voicethread link containing a unique set of data points. These links will be made available to the other students in their group. Students will add comments to each others Voivethreads showing their understanding of how to work the problem. Together they will choose one Voicethread present to the rest of the class demonstrating their understanding of the process.
