on the separate answer sheet. No partial credit will be allowed on the multiple-choice section.
For Parts II, III, and IV, clearly indicate the necessary steps, including appropriate formula substitutions,
diagrams, graphs, charts, etc. For all questions in these parts, a correct numerical answer with no work shown
A reference sheet that you may need to answer some questions in this examination is included.
Scrap paper is not permitted for any part of this examination, but you may use the blank spaces in this
examination as scrap paper. Scrap graph paper is provided at the end of this examination for any question for
which graphing may be helpful but is not required. Any work done on this sheet of scrap graph paper will not be
scored. Write all your work in pen, except graphs and drawings, which should be done in pencil.
Note: A graphing calculator and a straightedge (ruler) must be available for you to use while taking this
examination.
