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 clicker 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 a comprehensive review.  It serves merely to illustrate a mix of question styles (procedures, 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 will include and leave out exactly the same topics as the sample questions.  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 a portfolio,  BRING YOUR PORTFOLIO TO THE EXAM for me to review.  Also BE SURE TO PICK IT UP BEFORE YOU LEAVE after the exam.
