2) Show the completed problems to Mr. Cappetta for class points.
3) Start working on the review problems attached.
4) These are due when you walk into class on Tuesday (Monday for Per. A). We will go over any questions in class.
5) For the second half of Tuesday (all of Tuesday for Per. A), you will take a unit exam covering everything we have learned so far.
YOU ARE ALLOWED TO CREATE A ONE PAGE SHEET TO HELP YOU ON THE TEST.
- Per 5,8 will be given time the first half of Tuesday to create sheet
OF COURSE, YOU CAN COMPLETE IT OVER THE WEEKEND IF YOU ARE GOOD LIKE THAT I would review vocabulary words such as disjoint, mutually exclusive and independence if I were you... (re-reading Ch. 15 might help)
