You may use the attached equation sheet, R, and a calculator. No other materials. Show your work in the space provided. If you choose to use R, write what you typed on the test or copy and paste your work into a word document labeling the question number it corresponds to. When you are done with the test print out the document and turn it in with the test. Be sure to save often on a memory stick just in case. Using any other program or having any other documents open on the computer will constitute cheating. You have until the end of class to finish the exam, manage your time wisely. If something is unclear quietly come up and ask me. If the question is legitimate I will inform the whole class. Express all final answers to 3 significant digits. Probabilities should be given as a decimal number unless a percent is requested. Circle final answers, ambiguous or multiple answers will not be accepted. Show steps where appropriate. The exam consists of 16 questions for a total of 80 points on 9 pages. This Exam is being given under the guidelines of our institution’s Code of Academic Ethics .
