## 90092 MTH 1002 A -- Fundamentals of Mathematics -- Fall 2012 Online Course Quiz 5

This web page is http://www.bernstein-plus-sons.com/.dowling/MTH1002F12/MTH1002_Quiz_5.html

This is the weekly quiz for 16 October 2012 for the MTH 1002 course. Please do this quiz after you have completed the rest of assignment 5. It should take between one half hour and 2 1/2 hours to complete if you are well prepared, longer if not.

There are 2 parts to this quiz. For the first part you are to answer questions on this web page. For the second part you are to register for the Khan Academy, list the instructor (yayahjb@gmail.com) as coach and do all the drill pages on the following web pages as best you can:

In answer questions on this page, when you need to show an exponent as in xa show the raised part using ^ and (), as in x^(a). For division, use / and (), as in (x^3-1)/(x-1).

Be sure to be logged into the Khan Academy when you do the drills. Showling proficiency is half the value of the quiz.
