“We
must prepare the next generation to be logical, flexible thinkers in a world
that is increasingly complex and mathematical.”

Be
sure to follow directions very carefully in order to receive credit.

Put your name on your cheat sheet (one 8.5 x 11 sheet with
writing on both sides is allowed along with your calculator) and turn this in
when you turn in your exam.

If you need more space, then you may write on the back of any
page.

Recall that there is hw that has been previously assigned
that you must complete before Monday’s lab (see front board and main web
page).

**Work
quickly and efficiently**. Some of the problems are the same or
similar to problems that you have seen before - **read each question
carefully in order to be sure that you answer the question that was asked. Do not spend too much time on any one
problem or part of a problem except those marked WORTH MORE**.
Return to questions that you are struggling with after you complete
those that you can do more easily.
**Partial credit will be granted**
so do continue on with a problem even if you know that one part is wrong.
If part b) depends on part a), full credit can still be obtained for b) by
showing the correct process for b).
.

“**
Set up a formula with numbers substituted in for the variables
**”
means that you should set up something similar to

100 (1 + .049) ^{100} (using the appropriate formula and numbers) as we
have been doing in class when we set up formulas.

“**Show work**”
means that you should show what numbers you plugged in to get an answer (ie 3*2
+1=7) but there is no need to explain in words.

“**Does your answer in part
a) make sense? Why?**” means that you
should write about answer a, relate it back to the problem it answered and
explain why the answer(s) fits or does not fit with the problem. Sometimes you will need to do
additional work to explain (for example, calculating the total paid,
…). If you know you’ve
gotten the wrong answer because it doesn’t make sense, explain why you
know this.

“Explain
why the formula that you chose was the only one that was appropriate to use in
this case.”
requires a similar explanation as on the Jane and Joan worksheet.

“WORTH
MORE” is similar
to the labs

GOOD LUCK!!
