STA2023 – EXAM 1 REVIEW/OUTLINE
The following is a list of key concepts that could be included on the exam.

Many of these topics will be
included on the exam, but not necessarily all of them.
Furthermore, other questions may be asked that are
not included in the list.

Getting the correct answer without showing your work is not sufficient

Also bring at least 2 pencils and your Santa Fe student ID.
You may also bring a 3x5 index card (one side
only) to the exam.
You may write anything you want on the index card, but I suggest using it for formulas,
keywords, steps for using your calculator, and anything else you feel is appropriate.
