12/6   Mr. B-B's thought for the day
Whether you are exempting or not, work on the exam review today. I have revised the review so that it matches very closely what's on the actual exam. Try to complte half of this today (about 13 problems) and finish the other half on Friday. The sub will be chacking that you have completed the review by Friday for a grade. I will get solutions posted on the website so you can check over your work.
