I have left room below each question for you to write your answer. If you need more room then use the back of any of the pages but be sure to indicate which problem is being continued on the back page. At the end of each problem I have noted the number of points that the problem is worth — obviously, you want to put more effort into those problems which are worth more points than those which are worth less. The test is worth 100 points. Remember to check your work. Good luck. i . a a , . m = .. r. T. F. i 74 .. a s: o - Some of our common crabs Mid-Term #2 I AGE 312-02! Winter 2000 , ~1- Name: I.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
