Final Exam is on Friday December 6, 8:00 to 9:10 AM (70 minutes allowed) in our class room, SV3K. Get there early for a little extra time.
Bring your calculator for the exam. You are not allowed to use a cell phone for a calculator, phones must be turned off and put away. As was done for midterms, you'll use backside of exam sheets for scratch paper, you will not be allowed to use your own paper.
The exam was produced by the Math Department. It is closed book and will cover the entire course. There are 25 questions on the exam. 16 questions are multiple choice covering Student Learning Outcomes (SLO's). The rest you will give the answer.
Many questions will be of similar type as the midterms so review your midterm exams. Questions on subjects covered since the last midterm will be on the exam. These subjects are Percentages with Applications (Chapter 8), Reading Graphs (9.2), Plotting Points and Linear Equations (9.4), and Measurements (Chapter 10).
For units of measurements, know how to convert between inches, feet and yards. Know how to add measurements given in feet and inches. For metric measurements, know how to convert between basic units and centi, for example 1 centimeter = .01 meter and 1 meter = 100 centimeters. Know how to convert between basic units and kilo, for example 1 kilometer = 1000 meters. There will be no conversions between English and Metric systems.
Know how to compute area and circumference of circles. Those formulas can be useful in everyday life plus you will need to know them in Math 70 and Math 102 -- so you may as well learn them now. You will be given the value to use for π.
