NC Dept of Public Instruction math tasks for k-2
"These tasks are grade-level formative performance assessment tasks with accompanying scoring rubrics and discussion of student work samples. They are aligned to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics. You may download and use these tasks for professional development purposes without modifying the tasks.
The tasks for grades 3 through High School were developed by the Mathematics Assessment Resource Service (MARS) of the Shell Centre for Mathematical Education, University of Nottingham, England. The tasks for grade 2 were developed by the Silicon Valley Mathematics Initiative's Mathematics Assessment Collaborative (MAC).
The tasks below are arranged by grade level. To search for tasks by mathematical strand or to see information about alignment to specific standards, use the "shortcuts" field at the top of the page, or visit the Common Core mathematical content standards page."
