Is there another final exam available anywhere? The one that I see is the same as in years past. I would have assumed that this assessment would have been updated into PARCC style like the unit tests. Also, this one is very poorly formatted with the way fractions are written, I teach a large population of Special Ed students and writing them with the slash "/" is very confusing especially when radicals are involved. Please advise.

Dear Ms. Souders, Thank you for your comment. Our Algebra team is working on the final units by making adjustments to the presentations, CW-HW, and assessments. The final exam will be adjusted shortly as the other units become completed. If you could provide me with a range of dates when you needed the final exam completed by, we can make sure that it gets finished for you. Kind regards, Audra

We are currently making sure that all of our assessments are aligned to the state standards and have been given a district deadline of May 15th.

Dear Ms. Souders, Thank you for that information. I will let the members of our Algebra team know about your deadline and get this exam finished and posted prior to your due date. Kind regards, Audra

Thank you for all of the hard work that you fellow educators put into this; it is greatly appreciated.

Dear Ms. Souders, Thank you again for all of your messages about the final exam. The file has been updated, and the answer key is included at the end of the file (last 2 pages). Kind regards, Audra

Final contains errors (11, 17 at first glance??) but also, it seems that there is an answer key attached to the bottom of the final and one that is separate. They are not the same. Thoughts?

Audra Crist • 1 year, 9 months agologin to reply

Dear Ms. McGeehan, Thank you for your comment. After making the revisions to the final exam (2016-05-18...did not have the answer key ready yet & 2016-05-23...with answer key), the file that is listed separately as an Excel file is no longer required (answers for the old final dated 2012-08-29). Over the summer, the "Answer Key" attachment will be removed. We will make sure that the Midterm answers are at the end of the Midterm file prior to removing the separate Answer Key attachment. Kind regards, Audra

Note to all users: The Mid-Year Assessment & End of Year Assessment are located in the unit sequence of our course material.

The unit on functions has a mistake. class/ h.w problem # 105, 114 as well as functions quiz 2/ re quiz 2 # 7 An arithmetic sequence is a linear function. Instead of y=mx+b, we write an=dn+c where d is the common difference and c is a constant (not the first term of the sequence, however).

Hi there! You are absolutely correct. These 4 problems have been updated and new copies of the documents have been uploaded to the website. We appreciate your comment as we strive to constantly improve our material. Thank you!
