Crap, I got a 9/10 in what took me longer than it should have.  It didn't tell me which one though.  It's good to know I could still get an A in 8th grade math.

I couldn't remember what the mode, median, or standard deviation were. And I guessed wrong.

Got the rest right though.

9\10

It was that 'mode, median, average' question that threw me.

I'm assuming I missed the mode, median, standard deviation one, as it's the only one I thought about for more than a couple seconds.  Wish my nursing school tests were this easy.  biggrin

9/10.  I cry foul.  I missed the whole number vs. integer question.  

From Mathworld
Quote
Some authors also interpret "whole number" to mean "a number having fractional part of zero," making the whole numbers equivalent to the integers.


I would be one of those authors.

I got 8/10, I have no idea about the medium on.  Hand me a problem and I'll figure how to solve it, but when they ask questions like that I totally draw a blank.

I got 10/10, but I didn't know wtf a "mode" was, only got that one by process of elimination.  I have never heard that term applied to numbers before in my life.

I got 10/10, but then again, I teach 8th grade math.

However, I felt that quiz was not representative of 8th grade math - too much algebra and not enough (if any) geometry.

Yeah, I felt that way too.  I got an 8/10, which I thought was actually amazingly high for me due to my horrific math skills.

Basic algebra I'm pretty good at.  Geometry, which was the bulk of my 8th grade math class way back when, I stink at.

Bah, 8/10.  It was the "mode/median" question that got me and the "integer, prime, irrational" question that also got me.  I'm surprised I remembered any of that stuff at all to be honest.

10/10, but that was really a 7th Grade math test, not eighth grade. An eighth grade math test would have to have a quadratic and and rational equation as well as a system of equations with multiple variables. Algebra I is an eighth grade standard now.

But my eighth graders are actually taking geometry. So take this simple test. Put three points on a piece of paper and then construct the circle that passes through all three points.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Draw the triangle formed by the three points and construct the perpindicular bisector of each side. The concurrency point of each bisector is the center of the circle and from the center to one of your original points is your radius.


Congratulations, you passes the chapter 4 test. Next up, finding the third side of a triangle using the law of cosines. (Eighth grade math is fun!)

Of course they can add.  But multiplication is their forte:

Math was okay up to around grade 9 or 10.  Then I failed at it completely.
