Could you pass a Common Core English or Math exam?

Students across the state are opting out of taking standardized testing. If you want to give it a shot, you can visit the Common Core website. But here are a few questions from the Math portions of the exams.

Grade 8:


Grade 7:


Grade 6:

Ms. Peterson wrote an expression below on the chalkboard for her class. She Asked the students to write an equivalent expression using no more than one set of parantheses.

4(3x+5y+2z) + 3(x-z)

Tom wrote 12x +20y + 8z

Jenna wrote 5(3x + 4y +z)

Chris wrote 15x + 20y - 5z

Which, if any, of these 3 students wrote an expression that is the equivalent to Ms. Peterson's expression.
