When I look at the heavy representation of fractions in the 7th grade Sample Questions, it seems at odds with the March 2012 memo from the state that says students in Grades 7&8 must have scientific calculator for the entire test. 
If they truly wanted students to be able to work with fractions then why are they allowing them to use a calculator for the entire exam?

>Hello fellow math teachers,
>Common Core sample questions are out for review and comments.  Each grade 3 - 8 teacher should review these questions and complete the survey. I know we are all swamped with finals, report card grades, etc but this is important to view.  In the fall, we will probably have sample tests to review.  Right now SED is asking for feedback on these specific questions.  Please do respond. 
>These questions are going to be really challenging for my students. All I can say is wow, when I looked at the 7th grade ones.
