Review for Semester One Exam
I have attached the REVIEW problems for the semester one exam for period 1 class and the few students who where absent the day I past out the review.
I have opened up the other chapter work we have completed so you can look back at any formulas or examples.
I did attach all the answers for the students who have been working the problems and want to check their work. If you are having trouble with a particular problem, you can email me and I will try to anwer what I can on line.
Please be working through these problems and prepare yourself for the exam! Have questions ready for class, work through as much of the problem as you can so you can SEE where you actually have trouble. You may surprise yourself and know more than you think if you SEE what you can get completed or attempted ON paper!
