Buses, Vans and Cars ( Grade 4)

This is a sample PARCC assessment task based on CCSS grade 4 operations and algebraic thinking standards as well as the number operations in base ten standards. In this interactive single task students must solve a multi-step problem by finding combinations of vehicles each of which hold a different number of passengers to transport all the students from three classes on their field trip. Included are the alignments to the CCSS, a scoring rubric and background on the task itself.
