Students will be able to solve a variety of proportional reasoning problems.

Time to test! Let the students show you what they have learned about proportional relationships!

10 minutes

**Opener: **As students enter the room, they will immediately pick up and begin working on the opener – **Instructional Strategy - Process for openers**. This method of working and going over the opener lends itself to allow students to construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others, which is **mathematical practice 3**.

**Learning Target: **After completion of the opener, I will address the day’s learning targets to the students. In today’s lesson, the intended target is, “I can apply what I know about proportional reasoning to solve a variety of problems.” Students will jot the learning target down in their agendas (our version of a student planner, there is a place to write the learning target for every day).

**Test: **Today students will take the Proportional Reasoning Test. The test consists of 20 multiple choice questions, utilizing **mastery connect**. Questions will require that students persevere to arrive at answers (**mathematical practice 1**) as well as pay attention to precision (**mathematical practice 6**). All questions require that students apply their knowledge to the real world, and/or reason through models and abstract information (**mathematical practices 2 and 4**). *I teach two levels of 7th grade math, one advanced and one regular. In an effort to challenge the advanced kids, I have two different versions of the test uploaded in this section: Proportional Reasoning Test, and Proportional Reasoning Test Advanced. Though many questions are similar, the advanced version is a little more rigorous.*
