You are to mark the correct choice on your 815-E (Quizzstrip) scantron (bring a blank one to the exam on Thursday) . You should also circle the correct choice on your exam for your own records. Part II will consist of 5 workout problems (some with multiple parts). All answers must be justified with appropriate algebraic work. Partial credit will be given for appropriate work shown on these problems.
  • Calculators are NOT allowed at any time on the exam.
  • Bring: Writing Utensils, Picture ID. All other materials should be left at the sides or front of the room during the exam. Electronic devices must be OFF or SILENT and out of sight during the exam.
