After now seeing multiple algebra 1 common core exams what do you feel are common theme questions and specific focus for June 2016, which ones repeated the most?
Heavy focus on quadratic functions and equations and equivalent forms. Which is a step in solving, or which factored form has the same solution, etc.
A couple of questions about exponential functions and their graphs.
What is and isn't a function. Domain and range of a function, particularly writing them as inequalities -- and explaining what the limits of them are in context with a real world problem, such as the ball stops falling when it hits the ground, or only whole numbers of people make sense for the domain of the function. And describing the transformation of a function.
I also expect to see at least one question on residuals and correlation coefficients and one on adding rational and irrational numbers, but those are more one-shot questions which don't extend to other topics as much.
Mr. Burke is a high school math teacher in New York as well as a part-time writer, and a fan of science-fiction/fantasy books and films.
He started making his own math webcomic totally by accident as a way of amusing his students and trying to make them think just a little bit more.
Unless otherwise stated, all math cartoons and other images on this webpage are the creation and property of Mr. Chris Burke and cannot be reused without permission.
Thank you.
