Question:

A quick quiz to test your study skills and knowledge - please choose the correct answer: 1. The surest way to remember important information is to read it once and then reread it immediately. True False 2. As I read, I like to relate what I'm learning to what I already know. True False 3. I always ask "Why?" questions, such as "Why did that happen?" or "Why would that be true?" True False 4. I tend to wait until shortly before an exam to start studying. True False 5. I love using flash cards to test my knowledge as I prepare. True False

Answer:

The great thing about this quiz is generally, there are no "right" or "wrong" answers - however, if you normally find yourself in a bad study situation or you've found yourself answering "false" for questions 1, 2, 3, and 5 and "true" for question 4 - there may be some improvements you can make to make sure you are getting the most out of your material - and yourself - for upcoming examinations. Rereading information, knowing the correct things to highlight and study, as well as focusing on concepts - and leaving enough time to study - are some of the most important building blocks to get better grades, and performing better on assessments. I can help you to develop these skills and habits, as well as help you to discover what methods may work best for you!

Question:

Choose the answer that makes the most sense grammatically: 1. Air pollution is obviously one of the major ......... of city life. a) references b) disadvantages c) attempts d) definitions e) expressions

Tiana G.
Answer:

The correct answer is (b) disadvantages. This is because air pollution would be considered a negative aspect of city life, a.k.a. a disadvantage.

Question:

Determine whether each of the following numbers are solutions to the given equation. (a) (x=6) in x^2 - 36 = 0 (b) (z= -2) in 3(z + 1) = 4z - 5

Tiana G.
Answer:

(a) We first plug the proposed solution into the equation: (6)^2 - 36 = 0 36 - 36 = 0 0 = 0 THIS WORKS So, what we are asking here is does the right side equal the left side after we plug in the proposed solution - because the left and right sides match, we can say that x = 6 satisfies this equation. (b) In this case, we do essentially the same thing that we did in the previous example - plug in the number given, and see if it satisfies the equation. 3 ( (-2) + 1) = 4(-2) - 5 3 (-1) = (-8) - 5 -3 = -13 THIS DOES NOT WORK Because the left side (-3) is not the same as the right side (-13), this equation is not satisfied and therefore, z = -2 is NOT a solution.
