Try the problems on your own and then compare them to the solution given. Old set of lecture notes that contain some additional practice problems --------------------------------------------- If you have questions on any of these, take a picture of your work and either email or text it to me with your question! The final will cover homework problems and lecture examples from sections 5.1, 5.2, 5.3 and the finance handouts (HW21 - HW24). I don't have any practice problems so the best way to study is to do the following: 1) Work every homework problem to the point where you can take it and re-work it without looking at any previous work. 2) Try working all my examples from the lecture notes. Cover my work, do the problem and compare your results. 3) Try working the text examples that are similar to the homework problems. 4) Find similar problems on the chapter 11, 12 and 13 reviews and tests and try to work them. 5) Any of the above problems that you are getting the correct answer, take a picture of your work and either email it or text it to me with your question. Good luck! Remember to bring two study sheets, your finance formulas handout and your calculator! The final exam for MAT1311.03 (the T/Th 1:00 - 2:15 section) is on Tuesday from 7:45 - 9:45 am in this room. Bring your calculator (NOT a phone, ipad, android, or other internet capable device) and study sheet. The final exam for MAT1311.01 (the T/Th 9:30 - 10:45 section) is on Monday from 10:00 - Noon in this room. Bring your calculator (NOT a phone, ipad, android, or other internet capable device) and study sheet. If you have questions on anything, send me an email requesting a time to meet. I will have many students and will always give first priority to those who scheduled an appointment! Note: On all emails for this course, start the subject line out with MAT1311, followed by whatever else is appropriate. Emails without this subject line formatting may not be accepted!
