Utility of Materials Designed to Support Teaching: Limited (1)

I had to provide a lot of guidance for my students to complete this activity. The task does not give a lot of expectations of the teacher or inform what the necessary prerequisites would be for the students to be best able to complete.

Quality of Instructional and Practice Exercises: Limited (1)

This is one task designed to help students work with precision. There is an answer key, but there is only one problem to be solved so there is no variety or extra practice.

Opportunities for Deeper Learning: Superior (3)

This task requires critical thinking to solve a complex problem, the students worked in groups of 2 or 3 so it covered collaboration, and the application of discrete knowledge & skills to real-world situations.
