Sunday, Dec. 14 (the day before the first day of final exams) TAs Courtney Staycoff and Josh Kressmer will be on duty in the open lab (room 203) to answer questions on Math 010 and Math 110 Final Exam material, include the practice finals and final exam review homework assignments. Math 118 students should bring specific problems or study questions. 5:00-7:00 PM: Open lab in 203 for individual help with Math 010, 110, and 118
Please CLOSE YOUR LAPTOPS, and turn off and put away your cell phones, and get out your note-taking materials. Today’s daily quiz will be given at the end of the hour, and it will cover review material from today’s lecture.
Two evaluation surveys – Please take time to do both! You should have received two separate survey requests: One was from Professor Foley (via Pearson) – This one is an evaluation of the Math 010/110 Teaching and Learning Center structure. This will help us evaluate our course setup, software, tutor lab, TAs, and online grading/assignments/learning aids. The other was from Dr. Chris Bendel, MSCS dept. chair -- This one is an evaluation of the teacher of your Math 010 or 110 class section. This will give feedback to the department and to your own teacher about how you rate the effectiveness of instruction in your particular class section. Your feedback on both of these surveys will be very helpful to us in evaluating and improving our teaching methods and the Math TLC program – THANK YOU!!!
Final Exam Review Materials: There are three review homework assignments. These are each worth 8 points, vs. the usual homework assignment of 4 points. Unit 1 review homework (Chapters 1, 2, 3) Due at the start class yesterday, but you CAN still access it to improve your score if you haven’t yet reached the 80% score needed to access the next one. Unit 2 review homework (Chapters 4, 5, 8) Due at the start class today, but you CAN still access it to improve your score if you haven’t yet reached the 80% score needed to access the next one. Unit 3 review homework (Chapters 6, 7, 10, 11) NOTE: You must get at least 80% on the Unit 2 Review before you can start the Unit 3 review. Due at 8 a.m. next Monday, Dec. 15. Practice Final Exam NOTE: You must get at least 80% on the Unit 3 Review before you can start the Practice final. Due at the start time of your scheduled final exam period.
More info about the Practice Final: The practice final has 45 questions, as does the regular final exam. The questions will NOT be exactly the same as those on the regular final, but they will be similar in content and are distributed across sections the same way as on the regular final. Each time you take the practice final you will get a different set of questions, AND your highest score will earn you that percentage of 20 extra credit points on the final, so it will pay off if you can find the time to take it more than once. You CAN stop the time clock on your practice final by closing the window without submitting the test. You can then come back and finish it ater, and any answers you’ve already entered will be saved. REMINDER: You must get at least 80% on the all three Final Exam Review Homework assignments before you can start the practice final. Completing those assignments to 100% will prepare you much better for the final, however… And it will get you the full 8 HW points for each (24 total).
Final Exam Review, Part 3
Part 3 of the Final Exam Review HW covers: -Chapter 6 (Factoring polynomials) -Section 7.1 (Rational expressions) -Chapter 10 (Working with radicals) -Sections 11.2 and 11.5 (Quadratic formula) Make sure you look over your graded worksheets from TEST 3 and TEST 4 as part of your preparation for the final exam.
Teachers: Go over problems that students in your section need work on, especially rational expression problems, simplifying radicals, and using the determinant of the quadratic formula to find the number and kinds of solutions. ESPECIALLY take time to go over Test 4 problems that your students didn’t do well on (use Item analysis to determine what to cover.)
