Could you ace this year's state math tests?

Alan Petersime

How good are you at elementary and middle school math—and how good do you think the questions on this year’s state tests are?

Try your hand at two questions each from grades 3 through 8, which we took from the set released Wednesday by the State Education Department. After you answer each question, you can read the state’s explanations for why you might have gotten it right or wrong.

Then, tell us whether the questions are age-appropriate, Common Core-aligned, confusing, or thought-provoking. Let us know in the comments or @ChalkbeatNY.
