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.
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.
