Math 010 online work that is due today at the start of class: Gateway Homework #3 (turn in worksheet now, while I take roll) Section 1.2/1.8 Online Homework
Any questions on the homework for Sections 1.2/1.8 before we start today’s review for the Gateway Quiz?
Homework Assignment due at start of next class: Take the Practice Gateway at least once before class. (You can take it as many times as you like, and only your best score counts for points.) You should also try Practice Quiz 1 at least once before the next class period. (This is different from the Practice Gateway quiz. You have until the class session after next to re-do Practice Quiz 1 as many times as you want, and you’ll have a chance to ask about any problems on it before we take the Gateway Quiz at the next class session.)
Gateway Quiz, first try: 8 questions, 35 minutes. Online, but you’ll get a paper worksheet for showing your work No calculators We’ll be reviewing for this in class today. Answers must be completely correct, with fractions in simplest form. Reminders: – Passing the Gateway Quiz with a 100% (8/8) score at some point during the semester is a requirement for passing this class. – You may take the quiz multiple times until you pass. – Only your best score out of all attempts on the “real” gateway will count towards your overall grade. (And since you’ll eventually get 100%, there’s 80 points towards you course score!) – The second attempt will also be given in class 3 weeks from now. After that, there will be weekly opportunities to take the quiz outside of class. – In previous semesters, all students who have passed the other requirements for the course have also passed the Gateway requirement. (The average student took 4-5 attempts to pass.) Quiz coming up next class session:
You have had a number of practice Gateway questions mixed in with your regular homework assignments, but you should also take Practice Gateways before the next class session: 8 questions, same type as on the actual Gateway. Time limit of 35 minutes, same as the actual Gateway. Can take it as many times as you want. Best score counts for that percent of 8 points. (Each time you take the practice quiz, your overall course score will be updated to only include you best attempt.) Additional paper versions of practice Gateways can be picked up in the open lab from any TA or teacher. REMEMBER: Gateway study/help available every MTWTh from 8:00 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. in Room 203 JHSW..
Quiz coming up the next class session after the Gateway Quiz: Quiz 1 on sections 1.2 through 1.8 15 questions; 50 minute time limit Taken in class, but via the online course web site, with Lockdown Browser Worth 60 points 1 attempt No calculators allowed Practice Quiz 1 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.
Review for the Gateway Quiz: You’ll get a chance to take an 8-point Preview Gateway in class to practice for the 80-point Gateway that will be given at the next class session. If you don’t finish the preview Gateway by the end of this class session, you’re welcome to stay after class and finish it in the open lab next door. You should go over any problems you miss on this preview quiz with a teacher or TA in the open lab to make sure you know how to do them all before the “real” Gateway Quiz at the next class session.

Then select In-Class Gateway Preview. Enter the password (on whiteboard). Click on the button that says I am ready to start. Your time clock doesn’t begin until the loading process is finished and your first question appears on the screen. Now we will install the Lockdown Browser.
