Problem 1

Lin and Tyler are drawing circles. Tyler's circle has twice the diameter of Lin’s circle. Tyler thinks that his circle will have twice the area of Lin’s circle as well. Do you agree with Tyler?

(From Grade7, Unit 3, Lesson 7.)

Problem 2

Jada and Priya are trying to solve the equation \(\frac23+x=4\).

  • Jada says, “I think we should multiply each side by \(\frac32\) because that is the reciprocal of \(\frac23\).”

  • Priya says, “I think we should add \(\text-\frac23\) to each side because that is the opposite of \(\frac23\).”

  1. Which person’s strategy should they use? Why?

  2. Write an equation that can be solved using the other person’s strategy.

(From Grade7, Unit 5, Lesson 15.)

Problem 3

What are the missing operations?

  1. 48 ? (-8) = (-6)
  2. (-40) ? 8 =( -5)
  3. 12 ? (-2) = 14
  4. 18 ? (-12) = 6
  5. 18 ? (-20) = -2
  6. 22 ? (-0.5) = -11
(From Grade7, Unit 5, Lesson 13.)

Problem 4

In football, the team that has the ball has four chances to gain at least ten yards. If they don't gain at least ten yards, the other team gets the ball. Positive numbers represent a gain and negative numbers represent a loss. Select all of the sequences of four plays that result in the team getting to keep the ball.

A:

8, -3, 4, 21

B:

30, -7, -8, -12

C:

2, 16, -5, -3

D:

5, -2, 20, -1

E:

20, -3, -13, 2

(From Grade7, Unit 5, Lesson 14.)

Problem 5
