High School Algebra Tests and Topic Quizzes
If you like television or streaming shows that center around detectives, then you will love algebra. This branch of mathematics is entirely focused on finding the hidden part of the overall math message. Algebra is big on using symbols to indicate a value that is unknown. These symbols are known as variables and can often be determined by simply evaluating a system and getting the unknown (variable) by itself. Equations are math statements that have two equal sides. You will also encounter inequalities that state that on side of the statement is lopsided and almost unable to come to terms with the outcome. In any case, Algebra is a challenging section of math. That is why it is so important to help students not be overwhelmed by the concepts that are presented by modern high school algebra courses. The key here is to make it fun and to focus on the purpose of Algebra. When well understood Algebra can be the main center of your employment. When missed, it can just be a whole bunch of numbers and a few letters. Having been an Algebra teacher for over 20 years, this is where I have to say that the Core Curriculum has made some pretty drastic changes at the High School level. I always remember a section on logic, proofs, and probabilities. Those section are attached to other standard sets. The concept of a spiral curriculum at this level no longer exists; at least not to the extent it would in the past.
- Sample Algebra Common Core Test - We cover the most popular questions that we see on this topic. Everything is in short response format.
Choice Questions Form A Version 1 - This is the primary format
that you will see all sample tests in. I haven't seen any tests
released that cover all the standards such as this.
Choice Questions Form A Version 2 - By request, we add some
non-related, but happy images and graphics to liven it up a bit.
Choice Questions Form A Version 3 - By request also, this is
just barebones algebra. Some members weren't fans of the happy clips
in version 2.
Response Questions Form B - It should be termed "Medium"
length. All questions at this level require you to take at least
3 steps minimum.
Response Questions Form C - This took me several days to write.
Coming up with scenarios that were fitting were tough. This is version
Equations Quiz - I wrote these story based problems with the
help of niece and her friends to make them real for kids.
in Expressions Quiz - The geometric sequences problem is what
most students have trouble with. There is more practice in the topic
& Rational Expressions Quiz - This section is filled with complex
operations. Many students work for that next level here.
- Equations & Inequalities Quiz - A great chunk of this area revolves around you setting two equations equal to one another.
