The best way to prepare for the exam is to make sure you understand the material and can communicate that understanding through your work. What to expect on Friday, September 16th (and every other midterm day in this class). • Exam 1 is 10 questions each question worth 10 point (a total of 100 points). Some of the questions have multiple parts. • You should bring a pencil(s) and an eraser. • You should NOT bring a pen, calculator, cell phone, iPod, any other electronics, headphones, notes, scratch paper, etc. • You will be required to turn your ball caps with the brim backwards. • If anyone has any restricted material out during the exam for any reason they will receive a zero on the exam – No questions asked. (This includes cell phones, iPods, headphones, calculators, etc.) • You will not be allowed to leave the classroom until your exam has been turned in. • Once you have turned in your exam it will not be available to you until it has been graded. • Coming late to the exam results in less time to complete the exam. And you will not be allowed to begin the exam if any person in the class has turned in their exam and left. (The best plan is to be on-­‐time… better yet be early.) • You will be assigned a seat for the exam.
