Midterm Review Packet

This packet is an overview of what we have covered

during the first half of the year. This packet is a guide

to help you study for the midterm. This is just a

minimum of what you should be doing to prepare for

this high-stakes test. You should be using your past

assessments, homework, and notes to also help you

prepare.

Review packet:

1. Due Dates:

2. You must write out the ORIGINAL problem with

the work underneath for full credit.

3. If you have no work to support your answer, you

will not get credit.
