Slide Materials

"Optional Resources" may be used in answering the exam questions, but they are not, strictly speaking, required

How much time will I have?

The MIDTERM ON-LINE EXAM will be timed at 1-1/2 hrs.

The timing will start after you read the introduction, when you say 'go'."



Hi Tim,

I want to make sure I prepare well for the mid term approaching. What do you suggest is the best way to prepare? Should I go through all the chapters we've gone over? (slides, etc...)

is the exam multiple choice and essay questions?

 

The exam is an open-book essay exam.

You and your colleagues will each submit one or more questions in the midterm question wiki, I will comment on those, and I will add a few questions (one, for e.g., from current affairs).

That will be your list of study questions.  The exam itself will be four questions (for the midterm) drawn at random by "James" Moodle.

The best preparation is to work with that list of study questions, go through all of the materials (it will be a timed test).

More information [on the Midtermm Exam] is on the web at <http://www.d.umn.edu/cla/faculty/troufs/anthfood/afexams_midterm.html#title>.

The wiki to put your question(s) is listed in your Moodle Activities for Week 5 (for the Midterm) and Week 14 (for the Final).

How about going to the wiki and submitting a question?  I'll check it, and comment on it in a way that will indicate how that question might appear in the pool of questions.

Does that help?

Tim Roufs

 

How long should an answer be, and what might an answer look like?

Aim for about 1-1/2 "standard" double-spaced pages
(with 1" margins and11 or 12 pt. fonts)

On line, the questions and answers might look like this . . .

Quiz 1 sample question, from fall 2010, on lactose intolerance, score 95/100
