Preparing for the Quiz: 1. Review the homework from all five Chapter 1 homework assignments using the “Gradebook” function: –Click on the “Gradebook” menu button –Go to desired HW section, select “Review You can review homework problems even after the deadline has passed. This is a great way to study for quiz, since all problems on the quiz and practice quiz will have been selected from the homework assignments,
Preparing for the Quiz: 2). Take the Practice Quiz (under Quizzes and Tests, Practice Quiz 1). The practice quiz has the same number of problems as the real quiz, and has similar problems and will give you a chance to see the difference between doing problems in a homework setting vs. a timed quiz with no “help” or “check answer” functions. Each time you take the practice quiz you’ll get a different set of questions (not just different numbers in the same questions), so taking it multiple times will make it more likely that you’ll have seem most of the types of problems that will be an the actual quiz. 3). Review your daily class notes and/or the online lecture slides (under “Course Home” Link to Math 010 course Materials ).
–You can take the practice quiz as many times as you want, and the computer will generate new problems for you each time. –You don’t need a password to access the practice versions of tests and quizzes. –Your best practice quiz score WILL count a small percentage in your overall course grade. –After each try, you can review your quiz and see how to do the problems you got wrong. (Come to the open lab if you need help.)

(Or just take the practice quiz in the open lab to start with …)
