                   December Examination
           Wednesday, December 16 (9 a.m. – 12 noon)
                                          MAT 7A
                                          Ms. Wong


Overall expectations:
    translate between equivalent forms of a number (i.e., decimals, fractions, percents) e.g.,
    3/4 = 0.75)
    solve problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division with simple
    fractions
    evaluate the multiplication and division of integers
    evaluate expressions that involve integers, including expressions that contain brackets
    and exponents, using order of operations
    evaluate negative exponents
    solve problems requiring the manipulation of expressions arising from applications of
    percent, ratio, rate, and proportion
    solve problems involving the calculation of the circumference and the area of a circle
    determine the relationship between the area of the base and height and the volume of a
    cylinder, and generalize to develop the formula (i.e., Volume = area of base x height)
    determine the surface area and lateral surface area of a cylinder
    determine the perimeter and area of regular and irregular geometric shapes
    evaluate algebraic expressions with up to three terms, by substituting fractions,
    decimals, and integers for the variables (e.g., evaluate 3x + 4y = 2z, where x = 1/2, y =
    0.6, and z = –1)
