# MPM2D Examination Review

WARNING !!!! • This EXAM REVIEW is a merely a collection of many questions that have appeared on previous assignments, tests, and quizzes. It acts as a set of review questions and is NOT a copy of any previous exams nor is it intended to be an exam “simulation” ! • Completing this exam is only PART of a good strategy of preparation for the final exam. Other suggestions include: o Consulting the checklist of skills from the exam outline posted on the conference o Completing the suggested review questions from your text that are listed on the conference o Re-doing questions from old quizzes and tests and comparing your new solution to your corrections • During the real exam, you may use but not share: o TI-83+ graphing calculator whose memory may be checked and cleared o Pencil o Ruler o Eraser • Rely on the graphing capabilities of your calculator as part of your solution ONLY when explicitly prompted to do so, e.g., “Use your graphing calculator…” • Present your final answers in the form stated e.g., “to the nearest meter”. • Be sure to set your calculator’s MODE to “Degree” and when using trigonometric ratios, use 4 decimal places of accuracy, e.g., sin 45o = 0.7071. Use this space to write some useful formulas Midpoint Primary Trigonometric Ratios
