                      Your glossary
                      Your cheat sheet

On exam day make sure you bring the following to class:

      Your glossary, your cheat sheet (if you worked on one)
      A number 2 pencil (Do not expect me to provide you with one!!!!)
      One piece of paper

How your semester grade will be figured:

       Best six week grade =           x3
       Middle six week grade =         x2
       Worst six week grade =          x1
       Final Exam =                    x2

As you can see, it will greatly benefit you to have worked hard all semester on your glossary, to be sure to
bring it on exam day, and to come prepared with your materials so that you can do your best.
