## Unit 0 - Day 9

##### All Units
###### Writing a Precalculus Assessment
• Include questions in multiple representations (graphical, analytical, tabular, verbal)

• Write questions that reflect learning targets and require conceptual understanding

• Include multiple choice and short answer or free response questions

• Determine scoring rubric before administering the assessment (see below)

• Offer opportunities to practice with and without calculators throughout the year

###### Questions to Include
• A scenario that requires interpreting a constant rate of change and writing a linear equation, interpreting the slope and y-intercept in context

• Novel applications of the distance and midpoint formulas; consider giving an endpoint and midpoint and having students find the other endpoint, or solving for missing coordinates given a distance between two points

• Given a volume, working backwards to find a missing dimension

• Writing equations of two lines that are parallel/perpendicular, then justifying that they are parallel/perpendicular in at least two ways (graphical, analytical)

• Describing a range of numbers using set, interval, and algebraic notation

• Writing equations of circles or identifying center and radius from a given equation

• Describing the effect of scaling a variable in a non-volume equation (like kinetic energy KE=½ mv^2)
