CABT 102 Syllabus and Instructions 102syllabusS16.docx p. 2 Using the CTC Calculators Calculator Keys: The keys on the calculators in the CTC are slightly different from those in the book. Refer to the following list of keys which differ from the book according to the Lesson number. On Canon MP11DX Description T * Press to total your calculation and clear the calculator. CE None – Use Right Shift Key (→) Clears last number entered. Right Shift (arrow) key will erase the last digit on the display, if not yet entered into calculation. Clear C CE/C Clears the entire pending calculation, not just the latest entry. Lesson 2 Subtotal ◊ ◊ Displays and prints the subtotal at that moment. Does not change actual total. Lesson 4 Add Mode + This switch is at the top of the calculator. Set to + for Lesson 4. Lesson 6 Round switch (center top of calculator) 5/4 When set to 5/4, it automatically rounds calculation to the number of decimal places set in the Decimal Selector switch. Lesson 7 Decimal Selector Set to 5 at Ex 44-60 Set to 6 MP11DX does not have a 5 decimal setting. Set to 6 and round mentally for Exercises 4460. Lesson 8 Constant Operator K Lesson 9 Continuous Multiplication Lesson 11 Memory Register M+ M += Adds an entry or answer into memory and prints the number with the symbol M+. Recall (Total) Memory MR, RM M* Totals memory and clears memory register. Subtotal Memory M◊ Subtotals the contents of the memory without clearing; not used in assignment. Negative Memory M- M◊ M= Type of Key Lesson 1 Total Key Clear Entry Lesson 12 Used in book 5/4 No Constant key; no need to change any settings, but constant operation will work. Follow instructions for continuous, rather than non-continuous multiplication. Note instructions re: how many decimals to use. Subtracts an entry or an answer from the memory total. MP11DX CALCULATOR Setup Keys Set the calculator switches as shown for basic setup. In later lessons you will change them.

Lesson 8: Constant Multiplication and Division (using the calculator to multiply or divide by the same number many times, without re-entering that number) Lesson 9: Continuous Multiplication (multiplying two or more factors, setting decimal correctly based on number of decimals you are working with in the problem) Lesson 10: Mixed Operations (dividing and adding or multiplying and subtracting, etc, in the same problem) Lesson 11: Accumulative Multiplication (using Memory Register) Lesson 12: Negative Multiplication (using Memory Register) How to prepare for the final exam? • • • Complete Practice Test 2 (in your textbook after lesson 12). Repeat it as necessary until you can complete the practice test within 20 minutes (you will have 30 minutes to take the final, but the final is slightly longer than the practice test). Check your answers in the answer binder, as you would check the answers for any lesson. Note: The practice test does not include any mixed operations problems, so review lesson 10 before taking your final. Review the rules for the required number of decimal places in Lesson 9. Practice using the memory keys as in lessons 11 and 12. Factors involved in grading the final exam: A correct answer is correct on the printed calculator tape, and also written in correctly on the test sheet. A correct answer has the correct number of decimal places, based on the following guidelines: 1. Are you working with money? The first few lessons dealt with setting decimal places for problems involving money. As a general rule, use 2 decimal places when working with money. 2. Did you look for instructions for each section of the exam, to see whether you are instructed to set your calculator for a certain number of decimal places? 3. If there is no instruction to use a certain number of decimal places, and if you are not working with money, did you use the rule as demonstrated in Lesson 9 to determine the correct number of decimal places for continuous multiplication? Final Points and Grades: There are 40 problems on the final exam. Each problem is worth 2.5 points. A grade: No more than 4 incorrect problems (4 incorrect = 90%) B grade: No more than 8 incorrect problems (8 incorrect = 80%) C grade: No more than 12 incorrect problems (12 incorrect = 70%) D grade: No more than 16 incorrect problems (16 incorrect = 60%) CABT 102 Syllabus and Instructions 102syllabusS16.docx p. 4 CABT 102 - 10-Key Calculator Student Progress/Grade Sheet FILL THIS OUT AND TURN IT IN TO THE INSTRUCTOR Name Last ____________________________________ First _______________________________ Street, City, Zip______________________________________________________________________ E-mail Address _______________________________ Phone _____________________________ Cabrillo Student ID# ___________________________ Section: Aptos Watsonville At Home Instructor: ________________________ Semester___________ Date began_________________ I am taking this for a Certificate/Degree in: CABT Accounting Medical Assisting Other______________ Date/ Assignment Score ________ Read the Preface, Keyboard Features in the Introduction of the text. ________ Do Lesson 1 (Progress Test 1, p. 218, is optional) ________ Do Lesson 2 (Progress Test 2 is optional) ________ Do Lesson 3 ________ Do Lesson 4 (Progress Test 3 is optional) ________ Do Lesson 5 (Progress Test 4 is optional) ________ Do Lesson 6 ________ Do Lesson 7 (Skip pp. 40-41 on the TI calculator.) ________ Do Practice Test 1 to prepare for the Midterm ________ See Instructor to take Speed and Accuracy Test 1 (10 min.)
