Year 8 Mathematics Examination Preparation Sheet 2012 General Information for Candidates As in Year 7, the end-of-year assessment in mathematics consists of two one-hour examinations, which will be given equal weighting on your end-of-year report. Paper 1 is a non-calculator paper; paper 2 is a calculator paper. Each paper is worth a total of 50 marks. You will need a ruler, a blue/black pen, a pencil, an eraser, a protractor and compasses for both papers, and obviously a scientific/mathematical calculator for the second one. (The recommended CASIO FX83GT models are available from your mathematics teacher for £6.) You will be writing your answers on the question paper in the spaces provided. There will be enough space to set out your method clearly in the way that your teacher has shown you in class. You need to realise that VERY FEW MARKS WILL BE AWARDED FOR MERELY WRITING DOWN A CORRECT ANSWER WITH NO INDICATION OF METHOD. We are not looking for rough jottings – we want to see that you can follow the procedures and formal mathematical layout that your teacher has shown you during the year. This applies just as much to the calculator paper as to the noncalculator paper. The practice questions below are similar to those you will be expected to answer. NON-CALCULATOR PAPER You must write down all stages in your working. 1. Draw x and y axes from –10 to 10. On the same axes, draw and label the following graphs: (a) y = 3x + 1 (b) y = 3x – 1 (c) y = 1 – 3x (d) y = x + 3 For each graph, state the gradient and the y-intercept. A straight line passes through the points (0, 5) and (3, 11). Work out the gradient of the line and write down its equation. (You do not need to draw the line.) Put the following in order of size, starting with the smallest: 7.3 ÷ 0.1 7.3 × 0.001 7.3 × 1000 7.3 ÷ 0.01 Illustrate the following ranges of values on number lines. (a) 2.7 ≤ x < 3.1
