Chapter Practice Exam:

This test (found at the end of every chapter) provides you an excellent opportunity to both practice and review for class exams. Take this test to see how
much of the chapter you have mastered and retained. Do the assigned practice exam problems and check your answers with those provided at the back
of the text to see whether you have correctly solved each problem; rework all problems that are incorrect. If you need to review any of these problems,
simply refer back to the chapter review section of the chapter on pages 405-407, 481-484, and 675.

Practice Chapter Test: pp. 409-410 #3-12 all, 15-28 all AND pp.485-486 #1-11 all, 16, 22 AND p.677 #10, 11
Chapter Test Date and Practice Chapter Test Due Date: ___________________________

Additional Practice : Chapter Review (optional): pp. 405-407, 481-484, and 675
Cumulative Reviews (optional): pp.181-182 and pp.487-489

Misc. Chapter Notes:

Chapter Homework Assignments:

You learn math by doing math. The best way to learn math is to practice, practice, practice. The assigned homework examples provide you with an
opportunity to practice. Be sure to complete every assigned problem (or more if you need additional practice). Check your answers to the oddnumbered
problems in the back of the text to see whether you have correctly solved each problem; rework all problems that are incorrect.
