Test 3 Information

Test 3 will be administered in class on Wednesday, November 29, which is the Wednesday following Thanksgiving Break. In a slight deviation from the original syllabus, Test 3 will cover the material starting with section 5.2 on logarithms and running through section 6.6 on inverse trigonometric functions. In other words, the material will stem from:

Problem Set/Quiz 9: Sections 5.2, 5.3, 5.4

Problem Set/Quiz 10: Sections 6.1, 6.2, 6.3

Problem Set/Quiz 11 (not taken in class): Sections 6.4, 6.5, 6.6

I will post a review sheet here, similar to the ones I prepared for the first two test, by the time we leave for Thanksgiving break. In addition, I prepared a document including a completed unit circle chart, along with information and tips, that you may find helpful:

Unit Circle Info/Chart

We will review in class on Monday, November 27, and I will host an evening Q+A review session on Tuesday, November 28, specific time and location to be announced.
