Test-Taking Tips
• Go to bed early the night before the test. You will think more clearly after a good night’s rest. • Read each problem carefully and think about ways to solve the problem before you try to answer the question. • Relax. Most people get nervous when taking a test. It’s natural. Just do your best. • Answer questions you are sure about first. If you do not know the answer to a question, skip it and go back to that question later. • Think positively. Some problems may seem hard to you, but you may be able to figure out what to do if you read each question carefully. • If no figure is provided, draw one. If one is furnished, mark it up to help you solve the problem. • When you have finished each problem, reread it to make sure your answer is reasonable. • Become familiar with a variety of formulas and when they should be used. • Make sure that the number of the question on the answer sheet matches the number of the question on which you are working in your test booklet.

Identify different ways of selecting a sample (e.g., convenience sampling, responses to a survey, random sampling) and which makes a sampling more representative for a population.

Examples 1 Suppose a textbook company sends a letter to the parents of 200 students in
California asking whether the students would like to answer questions to help them design a new math textbook. Which of the following best describes this method of selecting a sample. A Random B Convenience C Survey D Cluster This is a survey. The parents of 200 students were asked whether their children could answer questions. Those who say yes will become the sample for the population. C
