Design a park: 5 by 5 grid: assessment

TLF ID L9930

Test your knowledge of percentages and their relationship with proper fractions. Represent given percentages on a 5 by 5 grid. Also show them on a number line marked in tenths. Allocate squares on the grid to match the given percentages for different parts of the park. For example, show 24% of the grid as bushland. Add each percentage to the number line by moving a bar along the line. View and print a report of your results. This assessment object is the last in a series of three objects that progressively increase in difficulty.

Educational details

Key learning objectives
• Students interpret a 5 by 5 area model in relation to percentages.
• Students interpret number line models in relation to fractions and percentages.
• Students use the relationship between fractions and percentages to solve problems.
• Students identify fractions and percentages that total 1 whole.
Educational value
• Assesses student's ability to relate percentages to a 5 by 5 grid.
• Checks student’s knowledge and understanding of the relationship between percentages and tenths through required use of a number line.
• Requires students to use proportion when allocating numbers of squares on the grid to each of the given percentages.
• Tests student understanding that 100% corresponds to different representations of 1 whole (ie all 25 squares on the 5 by 5 grid, 10 tenths and 1).
• Provides a printable report of the student's performance.
• Includes a mechanism for the teacher to comment on the student's learning progress.
