and it will cover review
material from today’s lecture.
Two evaluation surveys –
Please take time to do both!
You should have received two separate survey email requests:
• One was from Professor Foley (via Pearson)
– This one is an evaluation of the Math 010/110 Teaching
and Learning Center structure. This will help us evaluate
our course setup, software, tutor lab, TAs, and online
grading/assignments/learning aids.
• The other was from Dr. Chris Bendel, MSCS dept. chair
-- This one is an evaluation of the teacher of your Math 010
or 110 class section. This will give feedback to the department and
to your own teacher about how you rate the effectiveness of instruction in
your particular class section.
Your feedback on both of these surveys will be very
helpful to us in evaluating and improving our teaching
methods and the Math TLC program – THANK YOU!!!
Final Exam Review Materials:
There are three review homework assignments.
These are each worth 8 points, vs. the usual homework assignment of 4 points.
• Unit 1 review homework (Chapters 1, 2, 3)
Due at the start class yesterday, but you CAN still access it to improve your
score if you haven’t yet reached the 80% score needed to access the next one.
• Unit 2 review homework (Chapters 4, 5, 8)
Due at the start class today, but you CAN still access it to improve your score
if you haven’t yet reached the 80% score needed to access the next one.
• Unit 3 review homework (Chapters 6, 7, 10, 11)
NOTE: You must get at least 80% on the Unit 2 Review before you can start
the Unit 3 review. Due at 8 a.m. next Monday, Dec. 15.
• Practice Final Exam
NOTE: You must get at least 80% on the Unit 3 Review before you can start
the Practice final. Due at the start time of your scheduled final exam period.
More info about the Practice Final:
• The practice final has 45 questions, as does the regular final
exam. The questions will NOT be exactly the same as those on the
regular final, but they will be similar in content and are distributed
across sections the same way as on the regular final.
• Each time you take the practice final you will get a different set of
questions, AND your highest score will earn you that percentage of
20 extra credit points on the final, so it will pay off if you can find
the time to take it more than once.
• You CAN stop the time clock on your practice final by closing the
window without submitting the test. You can then come back and
finish it ater, and any answers you’ve already entered will be saved.
• REMINDER: You must get at least 80% on the all three Final Exam
Review Homework assignments before you can start the practice
• Completing those assignments to 100% will prepare you much
better for the final, however… And it will get you the full 8 HW
points for each (24 total).

the determinant of the quadratic formula to find the number and kinds of solutions.
ESPECIALLY take time to go over Test 4 problems that your students didn’t do well on (use Item analysis to determine what to
