ICLICKER QUIZ ANNOUNCEMENTS Slide : Announcements 1. Problem Set #3 is due on Thursday. 2. The midterm is one week from today. a. You can bring scratch paper, but you won’t be able to turn it in b. You cannot bring a graphing calculator, but you may bring any other calculator 3. The midterm will have three sections, not necessarily in this order: a. Short answer. i. Mostly this will involve identifying terms and concepts ii. You can find most of this in the book iii. If there is any discrepancy between my lecture and the book, go with the book. b. What would happen if. .? i. For each question you will be given an economic situation. You will use graphs and words to explain what will happen in that situation. c. Problem solving. i. One, or at most two, more extensive problems which you will solve mathematically. Student: How many questions will there be? I have not written the exam yet, but the time for section A should be the shortest, section B should take a little longer, and section C should take the longest time. I don’t know how many questions that will add up to, though. Student : If we can’t go buy another calculator for the exam, can we leave the answer in unsimplified form? You can’t use a calculator to do your algebra; you can use a calculator to do your arithmetic. I would say just to buy a calculator, but if not, then just solve the problem. Student: Are problem sets a good gauge for the midterm? It is probably a good gauge for Part c. Parts A and B are not going to be a lot like the problem sets. The best way to prepare for exams are by looking at past exams, but I don’t have any past exams, so I have no other way to give you an idea than showing you the format. Student: Are there any review sessions? I believe that the GSI’s will be doing review sessions during section, and some may be doing review sessions during some other times. I will not be holding a review session myself. The midterm covers up through today. It includes today and the reading material for today. Lecture and reading material for Thursday will not be on the exam. There are no regrades for the problem sets, but if you feel like the grade has been added up wrong or the GSI has skipped a problem while grading, go directly to your GSI.
