This homework set is intended as a quick and relatively painless way for you to brush up on your math
skills, and for me to understand your math background so that I can teach you more effectively. Please
answer the questions without consulting your calculator or other resources.
Questions of these types
will appear in lectures and exams, so treat this seriously.
I believe that the following sheets contain all
the basic math concepts you will need in this course.
You will be graded on whether you complete this
homework, not on how many questions you answer correctly, so please answer honestly.
I will not
judge you in any way based on your ability to answer these questions.
This homework consists of two “selftests”.
Questions appear on one side of the sheet and the answers
are on the back.
Please try all
of the problems in the first selftest before looking at the answers and
recording your score below.
If you get everything right on the first selftest, then there is no need to do
the second one.
Most students improve dramatically by the second time through.
