Extra Credit Quiz
Prof. Glenn Ledder of the Math Department is doing a study
to see how web testing can most effectively promote
student learning. To help him with this study, I
am making available an extra credit quiz.
This quiz has 10 parts for a total of 10 points
(just like any other quiz), but unlike in-class quizzes
this quiz is unproctored: you can do this quiz at any computer
with web access. However, you can't do all of
the parts at once. The computer will make available
each part according to the schedule below:
1 - Simple Indefinite Integrals 9/20 to 6pm 9/24
2 - Simple Definite Integrals 9/20 to 6pm 9/27
3 - Indefinite Substitution 9/22 to 6pm 9/29
4 - Definite Substitution 9/24 to 6pm 10/1
5 - Harder Indefinite Substitution 9/27 to 6pm 10/4
6 - Completing the Square 9/29 to 6pm 10/6
7 - Integration by Parts 10/1 to 6pm 10/8
8 - Trigonometric Integrals 10/4 to 6pm 10/11
9 - Harder Integration by Parts 10/5 to 6pm 10/12
10 - Partial Fractions 10/6 to 6pm 10/13
Each of the 10 parts has 3 or 4 questions drawn from the
database for the actual Gateway exam. Each part is available
for the limited time shown only. If you answer more than half
of the problems on a given part correctly, you get the 1 point
for that part. If not, you can try it again
and keep trying again until the deadline for that part.
If your eventual total score out of 10 is higher
than the average of your other quizzes, I'll average this score
in as another quiz, which will raise your quiz average. Otherwise
I'll ignore what you do on these web problems. Thus not doing
them won't hurt, while doing them can help, not only by raising
your quiz average but also by making you better prepared for
the Gateway exam and any other exams and quizzes that
involve integration (i.e., almost all of them!).
