When there are calculations involved, you should show how you come up with your answers with critical work and/or necessary tables. You must show why you choose certain answer for true-or-false and multiple choice questions. Answers that come straight from program software packages will not be accepted. The quiz is open book and open notes . This means that you may refer to your textbook, notes, and online course materials, but you must work independently and may not consult anyone . The brief honor statement is on top of the exam. If you fail to put your name under the statement, your quiz will not be accepted.
