Elementary Math Models -- Fall 2017
Information about the second exam
Our second exam will be Tuesday, 10/10/2017. It will cover
2 sections 3 and 4, and
Chapter 3 sections 1 and 2. You should be prepared for a
variety of types of questions: including reading comprehension, math
skills, problem in context items, and multiple choice
items like the "clicker questions" we have seen in class several times.
To help you study, I am providing a sample exam: CLICK
HERE. The formulas that appear on page 2 of the sample exam
will also be provided on the real
exam. It is up to you to know what the equations are for and how
to use them. I am also providing some "clicker questions" HERE. Some of these were discussed in
As was true for the first sample exam, this is not
review. It serves merely to illustrate a mix of question styles
conceptual understanding, definitions and notation) and the approximate
you can expect. In general, an exam on a body of material cannot
directly test every single topic or idea covered. There is not
enough time. So, in making up an exam, I have to choose certain
things to include and others to leave out. The same is true of
the sample exam. But do not assume that the real exam will
include and leave out exactly the same topics as the sample exam.
There will almost certainly be things on the sample exam that do not
appear on the real exam, and vice versa.
PORTFOLIO. Repeating the
information from the first exam, if you are compiling
