Instructions for Exam Solutions
for Exam Solutions. Errors on exams show some amount
of misunderstanding of
the material, and working on solutons is your chance to learn the ideas
missed. If a group's solutions do not show mastery of this
material, for example because there are still incorrect
answers to some of the exam items, that indicates to me that the group
members do not
care very much about whether they understand the missed items.
- Working in a group of 3 - 5 students, work out correct
answers to all the exam questions. You may consult any reference
and discuss your questions with anyone you wish, including me.
The objective is to turn in a completed exam that is 100% correct.
- Each group member is required to study the correct solutions for
items he or she missed on the exam. If asked, you should be
prepared to explain what you did wrong when you took the exam and what
the correction is.
- Your group will turn in one completed exam paper, with the names
of all group members. For this purpose, blank copies of the exam
will be made available in class and/or on blackboard.
- I will grade the handed in exam solutions and return them to one
member of each group. Your individual score for this assignment
will be the score assigned to the entire group. Each member of
the group should be given a copy of the returned paper for his or her
- You are free to consult any authority or reference
wish, including other students, our text, and me. However, please
review the academic integrity policy
on group work (paragraph 4).
