IMPORTANT: I WILL ALLOW THE STUDENTS TO HAVE A “CHEAT SHEET” FOR THEIR FINAL EXAM ON WED JAN 28.

STUDENTS CAN BRING THE CHEAT SHEET TO THEIR EXAM ON JAN 28.
I began the class today by taking up the questions from the package I gave the students on Mon Jan 19 titled “MFM1P Exam Review #2″. I took this up on the digital projector and mentioned to the students that I would post a copy on this blog posting (see below). After taking up this review package, I then told the students to either work on their “cheat sheets” or they could do the package I gave them today titled “Cumulative Review Chapter 1 – 7” which is from the textbook (I gave this to the students towards the end of the period). This review package is from the textbook and is for extra practice for those students that would like to have additional questions to help them study for the final exam. I told the students they did not have to complete this review package for homework but can ask me questions in class tomorrow or can email me up till the final exam on Jan 28. My email address is (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Below you will find a copies of the handouts/worksheets that were distributed/assigned in today’s class.
MFM1P Exam Review #1 Solutions (I took this up at the start of yesterday’s class on the digital projector)
MFM1P Exam Review #2 Solutions (I took this up at the start of today’s class on the digital projector)
Cumulative review from the textbook for chapter 1 to 7 with answers (This is not for homework tonight but I gave it to the students for additional practice. If there are students that have questions from this package that they would like me to take up then I will take them up at the start of class tomorrow or they can email me)
