MYP 5 - 12/16/13

All right folks, time to show your stuff!
Study Advice:
> Go through the handout with review problem sets from various chapters.
> Look through all the problems. But only do those that you're not clear on. Generally the later problems are harder, do 4-5 of those even if you think you understand things.
> Check the answers (the books are available through links below)
> Focus on older ideas, the ones that we haven't seen in a while.
> In addition, review the basic constructions - you will need to do a couple constructions.
> There will be a timed portion of the exam where you may be asked to write down from memory Pythagorean Triples, perfect squares, or powers of two. Review them.
> Relax and get a good night's sleep and have a good breakfast. That will be worth a lot more than another couple hours at midnight.

SL2A - 12/16/13

Week of 12/16/13                (Last Update - 12/9/13)

All right folks, time to show your stuff!
Study Advice:
> The exam will be a unit exam on derivatives of power functions and their applications (Ch 16-18).
> Do selected questionbank problems from the Calculus set here (MarkScheme). Choose problems that involve only power functions and differentiation. If you need more, I suggest more problems from 18D, F, & G (you've been assigned a bunch of them, but there are more) and all of the problems in the end of chapter review sets (there are 3 such sets, starting on p 547).
> Look at the markschemes and answers to be sure you are correct and to understand the scoring.
> Create a formula sheet that you would like to have. Then look at the actual formula sheet (here). Do some problems using the formulas that are not on the actual sheet to solidify your understanding of them.
> Relax and get a good night's sleep and have a good breakfast. That will be worth a lot more than another couple hours at midnight.
