To avoid embarking on a several month long unit, I have condensed the material that I typically covered (prior to the Common Core) into this smaller unit. This makes the unit test much more manageable for the students. The accident reconstruction activity and its elements take care of so many of the math practice standards that reflection on these components is not needed in the assessment. The assessment itself has only minor tweaks from an assessment that I originally gave that was aligned to our Indiana Academic Standards. This hasn't happened very often during my transition to the Common Core, and it was a refreshing find!
Students will spend 40 minutes taking the Unit Test.
