Scaling personalized learning at the district level may seem like a daunting task, and it is. But when the right conditions are put in place, schools can move beyond pockets of excellence to a truly personalized approach for every student. Building a vision with district stakeholders and creating a culture of innovation where everyone is encouraged to try new things and learn from failure while ensuring the transparency required for each person to understand their role in pursuing that vision are the foundation for aligning all aspects of the system behind your district's vision for personalized teaching and learning.

Open Middle provides math problems that have a closed beginning, a closed end, and an open middle. This means that there are multiple ways to approach and ultimately solve the problems. Open middle problems generally require a higher Depth of Knowledge than most problems that assess procedural and conceptual understanding.

This Illustrative Mathematics task is a refinement of "Carbon 14 dating" which focuses on accuracy. While the mathematical part of this task is suitable for assessment, the context makes it more appropriate for instructional purposes. This type of question is very important in science and it also provides an opportunity to study the very subtle question of how errors behave when applying a function: in some cases the errors can be magnified while in others they are lessened.

The problem statement describes a changing algae population as reported by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. In part (a), students are expected to build an exponential function modeling algae concentration from the description given of the relationship between concentrations in cells/ml and days of rapid growth (F-LE.2). The intent of part (b) is for students to gain an appreciation for the exponential growth exhibited despite an apparently modest growth rate of 1 cell division per day.
