Elementary Math Models -- Fall 2017
Information about the third exam
Our third exam will be Friday, 11/10/2017. It will cover
Chapter 3 section 3, and chapter 4 sections 1-4.
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 some sample exam questions: CLICK
HERE. The formulas that appear on
this set of problems 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. The sample exam also includes some clicker questions
that may or may not have appeared in class. Note that the inclass
questions generally have only one correct response, but on exams some
multiple choice items have more than one correct response, and you are
expected to identify ALL of them.
As was true for the earlier sample exams, this is not
review. It serves merely to illustrate a mix of question styles
conceptual understanding, definitions and notation)
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 questions. But do not assume that the real exam
include and leave out exactly the same topics as the sample
There will almost certainly be concepts or methods covered by the
sample questions that do not
appear on the real exam, and vice versa.
PORTFOLIO. Repeating the
information from the earlier exams, if you are compiling
BRING YOUR PORTFOLIO TO THE EXAM for me to review. Also BE SURE TO PICK IT UP
BEFORE YOU LEAVE after the exam.
