Algebra 1 50-question Midterm Assessment Study Guide
The midterm study guide was designed to allow students an opportunity to utilize all resources available to ensure comprehension before taking the Algebra 1 midterm. Students have been learning about basic and metric unit conversions, polynomial operations, simplifying radicals, constructing linear equations, systems of equations, systems of inequalities, exponential equations, as well as vertical, horizontal, and reverse transformations of basic exponential functions.
The Midterm study guide is formatted using multiple question types including opened ended, selected response, multiple-choice, etc. Questions prompt students to utilize provided information to perform specific tasks, such as constructing a function, determining specific formulas to find parts of an equation, and discussing topics, such as slope/y-intercept of a linear equation and average rate of change/initial value of an exponential equation. Some questions are progressive and include changing one aspect of a situation and describing the impact on the equation, graph, situation, etc.
Note: This was used in Georgia (GA) to prepare for the Georgia Milestones EOC Test
The goal is to prepare students for the type of questions found on common core standardized assessments like the Georgia Milestones/NAAVY/MAPs.
