Minitests will be made available about once every week. Click on the links below as they become active. An announcement will be made on the syde114 yahoo group to let you know when the test is available.  
You can prepare for the minitest by working on the assigned problems and studying provided solutions.  
Print the pdf file and write your solution on that paper. Be sure to provide your name and ID!  
Solutions should be handed in for marking on Thursday (as indicated below) by 2:30pm.  
An important objective is to teach you how to answer exam problems properly.  
Marks will be allocated for answers which are: correct (no less than is required), succinct (no more than is required), clear, and neatly arranged.  
Annotated model solutions will be provided at the original 'TEST' links below. Available for downloading when indicated.
