#### Big Idea

Students take a summative assessment to show they have mastered the standards.

## Warm Up Before the Big Test

10 minutes

I took loose plastic change and put it in my pocket. I told my students how many coins are in my 2 pockets and the total amount of money. I told them they needed to come up with the exact coins that make up that exact amount. The person with the right answer wins the coins! One dollar will buy 15 minutes for them of free iPad time. I have them keep the coins in a small baggie in their desk. If there is discipline problems, I take away a quarter. This keeps them accountable for their behavior because they LOVE free iPad time.

Today, I have put 67 cents in one pocket and 20 in another. ( i.e There is one 50 cent piece, 1 dime,a nickel and two pennies in the one pocket, one dime and 10 pennies in the other.)  I told them I had 87 cents with 16 coins between my two pockets. This little game really gets them going.

It took them awhile to work it out and finally one student got it! They really love this game and I will play it a couple times a week with them.
