Final Exam Review.

Your final exam will consist of a written exam that will be taken in class during exams week. It will
consist of a multiple choice test and possibly a free response section. There will be problems that will
require mathematical calculations on this exam. The exam will basically cover any information you have
been given this year. It is a requirement that anything you were given this year be kept in your notebook,
or notebooks. It is your responsibility to get this information if you do not have it.

Things you should review for the final exam:

1. All class notes taken this year. This will not be much because most of the notes you need were given
   to you in the form of handouts, not lecture notes.
2. Any handouts you received this year especially the Hewitt multiple choice tests you received for
   chapters 2-8 in the Hewitt book, and chapter 34.
3. All test and quizzes.
4. All in class problems.
5. All homework problems.
6. The equation sheet located on Ms. Nettler‟s Portal – You will receive equations for the test but it is up
   to you to know how and when to use each one.

As a general observation, most students do prepare well for exams. Exam week is a very difficult week
for students. We as teachers realize this; however, it is something you will be faced with as long as you
are in school. I would advise spending at least 5 hours (minimum) studying for this and any exam. That
does not mean that you should spend 5 hours studying the night before. You need to prepare over a
longer period of time. This means that you may not be able to “go out” or otherwise have a social life the
weekend prior to, and during the week of exams. You should plan now to be studying most of that
weekend, and in the evenings of that week. If you wait until the night before this exam to begin
reviewing for this exam, you will most likely not do well. Do not expect to review 36 weeks worth of
material in an hour or two. Break studying down into manageable chunks by topic if that will help.
Make an appointment to see or e-mail Ms. Nettler immediately if you have any questions.

Projectile Motion

         already had for motion.
Practice problems: If you get stuck, try writing out what you are given and what you are trying to find.
You may be amazed how much this can help. Use your equation sheet.
