2 Domain: Functions Item: CR 1 A trainer for a professional football team keeps track of the amount of water players consume throughout practice. The trainer observes that the amount of water consumed is a linear function of the temperature on a given day. The trainer finds that when it is 90 F the players consume about 0 gallons of water, and when it is 76 F the players consume about 178 gallons of water. Part A: Write a linear function to model the relationship between the gallons of water consumed and the temperature. Part B: Explain the meaning of the slope in the context of the problem. Key: Part A: y = 3x 50 Part B: For every one degree increase in temperature, the number of gallons consumed increases by 3. Aligned CCLS: 8.F.4 Commentary: This question aligns to CCLS 8.F.4 because it assesses a student s ability to construct a function that models a linear relationship from a description of a relationship between two values (x,y) and interpret the rate of change. Rationale: The correct answer indicates the ability to construct a function to model a linear relationship. Given that water consumption is a function of temperature, the values cited in the problem are understood as coordinate pairs that can be related by a linear function. Part A: y = 3x +b 0 = 3(90) + b 50 = b Part B: The slope indicates 3 gallons per degree ( 1 3 ), which shows that for every temperature increase in one degree, the number of gallons of water consumed would increase by three. Grade 8 Mathematics Common Core Sample Questions

3 Domain: Expressions and Equations Item: MC 1 Which of the following expressions is not equivalent to? 5 A B C D Key: D Aligned CCLS: 8.EE.1 Commentary: This question aligns to CCLS 8.EE.1 because it assesses a student s ability to apply properties of exponents to rewrite exponential expressions. Rationale: Selecting Option D could indicate that student recognizes the incorrect addition of exponents or confusion on the concept of equivalence (5 4 x 5 = 5). Options A, B, and C involve the correct application of the properties of integer exponents. Grade 8 Mathematics 3 Common Core Sample Questions

4 Domain: Expressions and Equations Item: CR 3 A computer can do 1000 operations in seconds. How many operations can be done by this computer in one hour? Express your answer in scientific notation. Key: Aligned CCLS: 8.EE.4 Commentary: This question aligns to CCLS 8.EE.4 because it assesses a student s ability to perform operations with numbers expressed in scientific notation. Rationale: The computer works at the rate of the 1000 operations in seconds, or multiplications per second (1000/ ). Application of the conversion of 1 hour = 3600 seconds [( ) x 3600] gives the number of operations ( ) the computer can complete in one hour. Grade 8 Mathematics 4 Common Core Sample Questions

5 Domain: Expressions and Equations Item: MC x y If a line contains the points in the table above, the equation of the line is A y = x + 5 B y = x 5 C y = 5x D y = 5x Key: C Aligned CCLS: 8.EE.6 Commentary: This question aligns to CCLS 8.EE.6 because a student uses y = mx + b to write the equation of a line given its slope and the y intercept. Rationale: Option C is correct. The equation of a line can be represented in slopeintercept form (y = mx + b) if the slope and y intercept is known or can be found. The slope, m, can be found by performing the following with any two pairs of the given points: 8 ( ) 30 m 5. The y intercept, b, is given in the table as (0, ) Accurately substituting these values into the slope intercept form of the equation gives y = 5x. Option C can also be determined by testing each of the options to determine which equation is satisfied by the set of points in the table. Selecting Option A indicates confusion in the proper location of these two values in a slope intercept form. Selecting Option B also indicates confusion in the proper location of these two values in a slope intercept form, as well as possible sign errors for the values of both the slope and the y intercept. Selecting Option D indicates an incorrect calculation of slope from the given table. Grade 8 Mathematics 5 Common Core Sample Questions

6 Domain: Expressions and Equations Item: MC 5 If a line passes through the two points above, the equation of the line is A y = x + 5 B y = x 5 C y = 5x D y = 5x Key: C Aligned CCLS: 8.EE.6 Commentary: This question aligns to CCLS 8.EE.6 because a student uses y = mx + b to write the equation of a line given its slope and the y intercept. Grade 8 Mathematics 6 Common Core Sample Questions

7 Rationale: Option C is correct. The student can determine the slope graphically or algebraically and can identify (0, ) as the y intercept from the graph. Algebraically the slope can be determined by 8 ( ) 10 m 5. Accurately substituting these values 0 into the slope intercept form of a linear equation gives y = 5x. Grade 8 Mathematics 7 Common Core Sample Questions

8 Domain: Geometry/Expressions and Equations Item: CR 6 In the diagram below, ABC is similar to ART. Part A: What is the scale factor from ABC to ART? Part B: If the slope of AC is, what is the value of x for coordinate C? Part C: Using the information from parts A and B, what is the length of RT? Key: Part A: AB 8 AR 5 Part B: 4 Part C:.5 Aligned CCLS: 8.G.4, 8.EE.6, and 8.EE.7b Commentary: This question aligns to CCLS 8.G.4, 8.EE.6, and 8.EE.7b because it assesses the construction and application of a similarity ratio, the creation of a linear equation, and solving a linear equation with one variable. Grade 8 Mathematics 8 Common Core Sample Questions

9 Rationale: Part A: The ratio of side AB to side AR is determined by AB AR Part B: The y intercept is (0,8) and the given slope of yields the resulting linear equation for segment AB of y = x + 8. Solving this equation for y = 0 yields the following value for C: 0 = x = x 4 = x x = 4 Part C: The length of side BC is the difference in x values between point B and 8 point C, 4 0 = 4. The ratio of side BC to side RT is. Using these two 5 pieces of information the solution to side RT can be found by solving the 8 4 proportion. 5 x x 8x = x = = =.5 8 Grade 8 Mathematics 9 Common Core Sample Questions

10 Domain: Expressions and Equations Item: CR 7 In the coordinate plane below, ABC is similar to AEF. What is the value of x? Key: x = 4 Aligned CCLS: 8.EE.6 Commentary: This question aligns to CCLS 8.EE.6 because it assesses the student s understanding that slope is the same along a line between any two distinct points Rationale: The student can compute to find the slope of AC. Next, the 6 0 student finds the slope, FA 8 6, x 0 x and then the student will set ratios equal to find x = x Grade 8 Mathematics 10 Common Core Sample Questions

11 Domain: Expressions and Equations Item: MC 8 ( 3 x 1) x Which step would not be a possible first step for solving this equation algebraically? A multiplying every term in the equation by six 1 B subtracting from C subtracting x from x D multiplying 1 by 3 Key: C Aligned CCLS: 8.EE.7b Commentary: This question aligns to CCLS 8.EE.7b because it assesses the student s ability to use the distributive property and to combine like terms when solving an equation. Rationale: Option C is correct. Given that x is multiplying a factor of 3, distribution or some other algebraic beginning that would be necessary before subtracting x.

12 Domain: Expressions and Equations Item: CR 9 David currently has a square garden. He wants to redesign his garden and make it into a rectangle with a length that is 3 feet shorter than twice its width. He decides that the perimeter should be 60 feet. Determine the dimensions, in feet, of his new garden. Show your work. Key: 11 feet wide and 19 feet long Aligned CCLS: 8.EE.7b Commentary: This question aligns to CCLS 8.EE.7b because it assesses the student s ability to find the perimeter of a rectangle by expanding expressions using the distributive property and collecting terms. Rationale: Width = 11 and length = 19 produces a rectangle with a perimeter of 60. The length is 3 feet shorter than twice the width. Let w = width w 3 = length (w + w 3) = 60 w + 4w 6 = 60 6w = 66 w = 11 w 3 = 19 Other processes may also result in the correct answer. Grade 8 Mathematics 1 Common Core Sample Questions
