Arena Performance Task


The AAC has developed a performance assessment involving sequences and series. In New Arena, students design the seating layout of a new NHL rink, and determine appropriate ticket prices. The task is fairly open, and students work within certain parameters. They will use arithmetic series and geometric sequences. Communication is emphasized.

The AAC link above provides teachers with the task, teacher notes, scaffolding tools for students, and exemplars of student work.
