Please open your laptops, log in to the MyMathLab course web site, and open Daily Quiz 9. • Remember: If you have time left out of your five minutes after you finish the two problems on this quiz, use it to check your answers before you submit the quiz! • A scientific calculator may be used on this quiz. No notes, cell phones, graphing calculators or other devices are allowed. • Remember to turn in your answer sheet to the TA when the quiz time is up. Please CLOSE YOUR LAPTOPS, and turn off and put away your cell phones, and get out your notetaking materials. 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! http://www.mathxl.com/mmllogin.htm 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. Why you should take advantage of the opportunity to take the practice test multiple times: Practice Test Tries Average Test Score Grade number of students 0 61 F 9 1 68 C- 6 2 76 C+ 13 3 89 A- 7 Test 1 Score vs # of Practice Test Tries (Math 110-004, Fall 2005) 100 Test 1 Score (%) 90 89 80 76 70 68 60 61 50 0 1 2 Number of Tries at Practice Test 1 3 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.
