Test 2 Study Guide: 8.1, 8.2, 8.4 (density only), 8.5 (work only), 9.1, 9.2 and 9.3, test 1 material and related material from prior classes

At the Test

  • NO calculators will be allowed.
  • I'll bring scratch paper. Ask me if you need more.
  • I will staple a copy of Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry and Derivative Review and the Series Theorems to your test.
  • In addition, you may make yourself reference notes on the small card I hand out (additional cards are on my door if you need to rewrite it). The reference card must be handwritten. Think of the card as a way to include some important examples or concepts that you aren't as comfortable with. You won't have room for everything, and you should try to internalize as much as you can.
  • You may have out food, hydration, ear plugs, or similar if they will help you (however any ear plugs must be stand alone--no cell phone, internet or other technological connections)
  • Your grade will be based on the quality of your responses in a timed environment. All tests must be turned in when class ends.
