MaA1NVCO09 Arithmatics Part II: VG/MVG-Level WARNING: THERE ARE DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF THE TEST
Instructions Test period Resources The test 110 minutes: 8:10-10:00 Friday Oct 2, 2009 Formula sheet, your personalised formula booklet, ruler, protractor, a graphic calculator, and a lexicon. For all items a single answer is not enough. It is also expected • that you write down what you do • that you explain/motivate your reasoning • that you draw any necessary illustrations. Try all of the problems. It can be relatively easy, even towards the end of the test, to receive some points for partial solutions. A positive evaluation can be given even for unfinished solutions. Score and mark levels The maximum score is 34 points, 25 of them VG points. The maximum number of points you can receive for each solution is indicated after each problem. If a problem can give 2 ”Pass”-points and 1 ”Pass with distinction”-point this is written [2/1]. Some problems are marked with ¤, which means that they more than other problems offer opportunities to show knowledge that can be related to the criteria for ”Pass with Special Distinction” in Assessment Criteria 2000. Lower limit for the mark on the test G: Pass: 11 points At least 30 points on the G-level test, and 8 VG points in this test. Alternative: Minimum of 22 points in this test where 8 points are at least VG points. MVG: At least 35 points on the G-level test, and 17 VG points in this test. High quality of calculations and deep level of understanding must be illustrated through out the test, especially in problems 7-10 marked ¤. Alternative: Minimum of 25 points in this test where 17 points are at least VG points an high quality solutions marked ¤.

⎧(− a )n = a n n : even number ⎪ ⎨ ⎪(− a )n = − a n n : odd number ⎩

With addition and subtraction we may add the individual margin of errors! a + b = (427 ± 1) + (5.5 ± 0.5) = 432.5 ± 1.5 a − b = (427 ± 1) − (5.5 ± 0.5) = 421.5 ± 1.5
