What we did today...a running blog-style commentary
Homework Assignments, Daily Topics & Tasks
Final Exam detail attached. This is the knowledge mastery list that I will draw the final exam questions from.
Also attached is the first semester final. You can see how I turn the statements into multiple choice and True/False questions. As an added bonus...many of the questions on the first semester final will find their way onto the second semester final. Don't miss the same question twice!
