**Strand Number Sense and Numeration: Factors and Exponents.**

*Test: Friday, November 29th, 2019*

If you choose Test A: you will need to complete Test B, before Winter Break. If you choose Test C, you do not need to do Test B at all. You will have a conference with me to choose the best test for your learning.

**Who is Test A for?** Students who need some more time and support understanding concepts and skills.

**Who is Test B for?** Students who are ready and can use the unit skills and concepts with good explanation and consistency.

**Who is Test C for?** Students who have displayed consistent work in excellent quiz results, can teach the concepts with great accuracy and are ready for a challenge.

**What’s on the test? Test B?**

- Factors, factoring, Prime Factorization
