- Practice problems for Quiz 1
- Quiz1a Answers - AADCCA(AorC)BAC
- Quiz 1 Results. The average for quiz 1 was 82.3% (St.Dev. 14.5%). According to the absolute grading scale, this is an A. This is considered a very high average, and this is unlikely to continue for future quizzes. Note that, because two answers were accepted for one of the problems, this average is higher than what it would have been by 5%.
- Practice problems for Quiz 2
- Solution to Problem P21.45
- Quiz2d Answers - ACACBBBBCB
- Quiz 2 Results. The average for quiz 2 was 64.0% (St.Dev. 17.6%).
- Practice problems for Quiz 3
- Quiz3b Answers - BA(B)CCDACEB. Question #3 was not counted since the topic was not supposed to be covered by quiz 3.
- Quiz 3 Results. The average for quiz 3 was 70.5% (St.Dev. 17.5%).
- Practice problems for Quiz 4
- Quiz4b Answers - CAEEDCACDC
- Quiz 4 Results. The average for quiz 4 was 59.5% (St.Dev. 19.5%).
- Practice problems for Quiz 5
- Quiz5a Answers - BBCDBBBCEA
- Quiz 5 Results. The average for quiz 5 was 55.7% (St.Dev. 18.0%).
- Practice problems for Quiz 6
- Quiz6c Answers - (AorD)EDBDEDDDC. If you do the first problem correctly, you get 1.4 (the corner of the cube is the first thing you can see). If you only consider a 2D cross-section of the cube, you get 1.8. Because the book has this exact same problem (P35.15), with the incorrect answer, both are accepted.
- Quiz 6 Results. The average for quiz 6 was 71.5% (St.Dev. 19.8%).
- Practice problems for Quiz 7
- Quiz7a Answers - DCCCCECEAA
- Quiz 7 Results. The average for quiz 7 was 67.4% (St.Dev. 20.7%).
