I Promised There Would Be No Grades, So,
        There is No Test

    It is with great pleasure that I write this page. There is no test.

    I leave you with an assignment I give to each algebra I and basic math student as part of graded work in each of these courses. The assignment is questions 3, 4, and 5 in the Algebra Question Book. There is no answer key to the assignment and my students judge it to be a difficult question.

    You may consider it a final exam rather than a test.

6, 7, 8: Chapter 1
1st: Write your birth year.
2nd: Write the four digits of your birth year
[ex. 1949 becomes 1, 4, 9, and 9].
3rd: Using the digits of your birth year as 4 numbers,
and using any operation you wish [+, -,, X, , , 1/x, x (where x and n are two of the four numbers)] and as many parenthesis as you wish, write an expressions equal to each whole number from 0 to 10.
Ex: 0 = (9 - 9)(4 - 1)

    I hope this lesson has been as much a pleasure for you to use as it has been for me to write. Hope to "see" you soon.
