Take out a piece of paper
On the Front Side:
List the assignment 1.0 11-91odd {41}
Copy original exercise 11.
Do intermediate work
Do 41. (then written work)
On the Other Side of the paper:
Do 91. (last exercise)
textbook answers. Circle the correct ones,
Mark 41 wrong (big X).
• Assume you did 35 out of 41 correctly…
GO BACK TO 1st PIECE for Scoring
On top, left of your name, write 35/41
• Staple multiple sheets together and hand
in (you can use both sides)
•
Multiple sections? Staple all together, in order.

11. t + 5 = 11 and 3t = 18
t = 11 – 5
t = 18 / 3

91. 2 { 9 – 3 [ -2x – 4 ] } = 12x + 42
2 { 9 + 6x + 12 } = 12x + 42
2 { 6x + 21} = 12x + 42
12x + 42 = 12x + 42
All Real #s Identity
 On the first page of each homework Section:
 Put your Name &amp; Assignment in the right top corner of first page
 For each problem:
 Write problem number and the original problem (word problems: summarize briefly)
 Write down intermediate work steps – most problems will have them
 Suggested - Every 5 problems:
 Check these 5 answers in the back of the textbook
 Correct any wrong answers (if you can ) by fixing the work steps
 Circle only the correct answers.
 Mark any wrong or missing answers with a big X – do not circle or count as correct!
 Use both front and back pages but leave a little space between problems
 After working all the problems that you can, determine the SCORE:
 Count the number of correct problems
 Get the number of assigned problems from the assignment line {##}
 Your SCORE is the ratio of correct problems to the total assigned. Example: 27
31
 Write the SCORE at the page top just left of your name
 If more than one page was used for this section, Staple them together top left
 When it’s time to Submit one of the 13 Homework Packages:
 Staple (top left) the 3 to 5 sections together, in order
 Pass in to me for Grading (0 to 10 points) based on percentage of problems done correctly
