Reflection: Unit Exams Algebra Unit Exam - Section 2: Administering the Exam


In grading my students exams, I found several common mistakes:

#3 - Students multiplied the exponent by the base, rather than apply the exponent.

#5 - Students didn't reverse the order when translating "less than"

 #7 - Students distribute to both terms within the parentheses.

#8 - Students only added the two given sides.

#10 - Students are confused by key words "at least" and "no more than".

#11 - Since the variable is on the left side of the equation, students were unsure if it was the same operation.

#15 - Students were able to narrow the correct answer to A or B, but were unsure if the amount could be exactly $15.
