Bonus points opportunity, next 18 hours

Bonus point opportunity:

Every semester, I initiate a study activity for bonus points: post a question for a midterm or final exam.

In this case, you create a question for out Exam 1 tomorrow (Friday), based on your notes, readings or other materials.

Here are the rules:

  1. Create a multiple choice question with four or five options.
  2. Indicate the correct option with an * asterisk.
  3. In the Subject box, type in a short phrase that decries your question.
  4. Below your question's options, skip a few lines and type in the page in the textbook where another student can study up on the correct concept.
  5. Dr. Brueckner will comment or maybe ask you to revise the question.
  6. Only if your question is good enough to use on the exam, you will earn one bonus point.
  7. Take a look at the example question on friction and work.

The bonus questions can make a nifty study guide, too.
