1.2 Assignments this week

Check the due date for each assignment and put a reminder in your agenda, calendar, and digital assistant.

1.2.1 Worksheets

Form a small study group to do the worksheets. Each person tries the example given, and you make sure you all get the same answers. Worksheets teach you how commands work. Worksheets are not for hand-in; they are not worth marks.

The worksheets are available in four formats: Open Office (ODT), PDF, HTML, and Text. Only the Open Office format allows you “fill in the blanks” in the worksheet. The PDF format looks good but doesn’t allow you to type into the blanks in the worksheet. The HTML format is crude but useful for quick for viewing online.

Do NOT open the ODT files using any Microsoft products; they will mangle the format and mis-number the questions. Use the free Libre Office or Open Office programs to open these ODT documents. On campus, you can download Libre Office here.

1.3 Lab work this week

1.4 Upcoming tests

Read the Test Instructions (all the words) before all your tests and exams.

Midterm tests take place in class during your usual one-hour lecture hour, not in your lab period. The Final Exam is in the room noted above.

1.4.1 Midterm Test #2 – November 6

  • Midterm #2 takes place on Friday, November 6 (Week 9) in your scheduled lecture hour (not in your lab period).
  • For full marks, you must read the Test Instructions before the test for important directions on how to enter your answers, your lab (not lecture) section number, and the test version number on the question sheet and the mark-sense forms.
  • There may be more questions on the test than you can answer in the time allowed; answer the ones you know, first.
  • A set of practice questions and answers for the second midterm test is posted: Practice Tests and Answers.

1.4.2 Quizzes: Midterm #2 Quiz

  • Blackboard has some quizzes taken randomly from the practice test. This second quiz set is one of several marked quizzes in this course.
  • See a previous week for the details on how quizzes are marked.
  • See the Course Outline for the mark weight of all the quizzes.
