Review for Test 1
If at any time you are unable to access
assignments from the PearsonMyLab web site:
You can still get to your homework assignments and
practice tests and quizzes during this time by using
the following login site:
http://www.mathxl.com/mmllogin.htm
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THIS WEBSITE
ADDED TO YOUR “FAVORITES” LIST,
AND KNOW HOW TO USE IT TO ACCESS
HOMEWORK AND PRACTICE TESTS!

REMINDERS:
• You can use your laptop and a scientific
calculator on the test, but no other devices (cell
phones, iPads, headphones, graphing calculators,
etc.) or notes are allowed.
• If you will need formulas for any test problems,
they will be given to you within the problem, on the
whiteboard, or on a printed formulas sheet.
• Any attempt to use notes or unauthorized
devices or other students’ help will result in a
zero score being assigned to your test. If it
happens again, you’ll get an F for the course
and an academic misconduct citation in your
permanent record.
Test 1 Covers:
Chapter 1 (Operations on real numbers)
Chapter 2 (Linear equations/inequalities)
To study for the test:
1). Take
Practice Test 1 as many times as you want.
(Remember, your best score on the practice test DOES count 5
points toward your course grade. A 100% score gives you 8 points,
50% gives you 4 points, and not taking it at all gives you 0 out of the
5 points.)
2). Review
the homework from the sections in which you
missed questions on the practice test. (Review homework by using
the “Gradebook” function, not the “Assignments” button.)
3). Review Weekly Quizzes 1 and 2 using the Gradebook .
Using the online gradebook: Click “Review” to view any completed
quiz/test (including practice versions) or HW assignment. The online help
buttons (like “Help Me Solve This” )will be available when reviewing a
submitted quiz or test.
4). Review
your notes and/or the online lecture
slides (from the Course Materials link on your MyMathLab course
home page, or http://www.uwstout.edu/mathtlc/math110.cfm)
Another good study aid:
“Chapter Highlights” pages in textbook:
Ch. 1: Online textbook: pages
Hardcopy text: pages 41-42
Ch. 2: Online textbook: pages 157-162
Hardcopy text: pages 108-110
Practice Test Tips:
• There is no password needed for the practice test.
• There are 20 questions on the practice test, the
same number of questions as on the real test.
• The time limit on the practice test is 75 minutes,
but the time limit on the real (in-class) test is only
55 minutes.
• Each time you take the practice test you will get
a different set of questions, so taking it at least
twice will help you review more of the topics and
problems that might appear on the test.
More Practice Test Tips:
• The more work you show on the worksheet for the real test, the
more chance you have for getting partial credit points back from
your teacher on the problems that are marked wrong by the
computer. If you finish the test early, use the extra time to check
your work, and show the steps for the check on your worksheet.
• This means you should get in the habit of showing work for each
practice test problem in your notebook, and practice checking
answers before submitting your practice test. Make sure you know
the steps for checking answers to “solve equations” problems!
• You DON’T have to finish a practice test all on one session. On
the PRACTICE test, you can do part of it, then close it (DON’T
submit the unfinished quiz, just close the window and leave the
page) and come back later to finish it without losing any time off
your clock.
• When you REVIEW submitted tests, the online help buttons like
“help me solve this” will become visible for each question.

Teachers:
• Based on your section’s performance on
the Daily and Weekly Quizzes (using the
Item Analysis function), select about 15-20
minutes of concepts and problems to
review with your section before having
them start working on the practice test in
class.
You may now OPEN
your LAPTOPS
and begin working on
Practice Test 1.
We expect all students to stay in the classroom
to work on your homework till the end of the 55minute class period. Even if you have already
taken this practice test one or more times, taking
it again will give you a wider variety of different
test questions to study.
