No homework this week: study and prepare your note card for the test on Thursday. You can bring a note card to the test, and it can have anything on it, including formulas and example problems. You are limited to one note card. It can be 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches printed double sided, or 8 1/2 x 11 inches printed on a single side. You can use your textbook for conversion tables only. You will not be allowed to use the book for any other purpose.
