We’ll be spending a few minutes talking about Quiz 2 on Sections 2.1-2.3 that you’ll be taking the next class session, before you work on Practice Quiz #2 for the rest of the class hour.
Quiz 2 covers sections 2.1 through 2.3 15 questions; 50 minute time limit Taken in class, but via the online course web site Worth 60 points 1 attempt No calculators allowed Practice Quiz 2 should be taken at least 2-3 times before the quiz day: 15 questions; 50 minute time limit; can take it anywhere Worth 6 points Unlimited attempts, only best score counts Each time you take it, you will get a different set of questions, so the more times you take it, the more chances you’ll have of seeing all the types of questions that might be on the real quiz. Don’t use a calculator, since you can’t on the real quiz. REMEMBER: Come to the open lab in 203 if you need help. M – Th: 8:00 a.m. – 7:30 p.m.
IMPORTANT: Be on time so you’re logged in and ready to go when I give you the password. Bring your –POWER CORD –ETHERNET CORD SHOW ALL OF YOUR WORK on the answer/worksheet provided so that we can award partial credit for partially correct work or typos.
Preparing for the Quiz: STEP 1. Take the Practice Quiz (under Assignments, Review for Quiz 2). 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.
–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.)
