Unformatted text preview: MatE 153 Section 1
You have 2 hours & 15 minutes to complete this test. The test is closed book, closed
Show all your work! The neater and clearer your work is, the more partial credit you will
receive. Check all your math after you have completed the test. Read and sign the honor
I have received no information about the exact questions on this test. I will utilize no
outside material during this test including my text or the work of my fellow students. I
will utilize no programmed in text or equations on my calculator. I realize that if I am
found to reference any other material or the work of my students during the test, I will
receive a zero grade for this midterm and be reported through the University channels
for academic dishonesty.
