PRE-CLASS READING QUESTIONS These questions are designed to guide your reading in the text before you come to class. Answer the questions as you read. Make notes of points that are unclear so that we can discuss them in class. Be sure to bring the pages for what we’re covering to class each time as well as the problem set pages. HOW TO USE THE TEXT: (text p. xxx) What feature of the book allows you to compare your background knowledge to that needed to master each chapter? ____________________________________________________________________ What is the function of the colored blocks found in the text next to figure numbers? ____________________________________________________________________________________ What is the function of the blue blocks with chain links found inside brackets with a page number? ____________________________________________________________________________________ A figure that has a graph has a question about the graph associated with it. Where would you find the answer to that question so that you can check to see if you answered it correctly? ____________________________________________________________________________________ The Concept Check questions act as ‘speed bumps’ to make you think about what you just read. Where do you find the answers to these?________________________________________________________ Where do you find answers to the questions at the end of each chapter? ___________________________ CHAPTER 1 1.
