Quiz #3: Take-home quiz due Sunday

Quiz #3 is a take-home quiz due Sunday; I uploaded the pdf to Files yesterday, and also discussed it during yesterday’s Blackboard Collaborate class session.

It could be useful to review yesterday’s Blackboard Collaborate recording and/or Exam #1, since the quiz is about the probability experiment of flipping a coin 4 times in a row. During the Blackboard class session we discussed the similar experiment of flipping a coin 3 times in a row. There was also an exercise about it on Exam #1.

As I discussed, if you have access to a printer you can print out the quiz and write your solutions on that. Alternatively, you can write your solutions on separate pieces of paper. You don’t have to rewrite the statements of the exercises, but please number your solutions and write them in order (i.e., from #1 – #5).

After you have completed writing out your solutions:

  • scan your solutions to a pdf file using your phone or a tablet
    • there are a number of free apps that will allow you to scan to a pdf, such Adobe Scan or Genius Scan (those two plus a few others are discussed in this tech review)
    • if you have the Google Drive app on your phone, you can use that to scan to a pdf that will be uploaded to your Google Drive
  • upload the pdf to Blackboard: I have created a Blackboard Assignment for this quiz where you can submit your pdf
    • go to the “Content” section to find the assignment and submit by attaching your pdf.

Email me if you have any questions! I will also have office hours tomorrow via Blackboard Collaborate if you have questions.
