The test

Things that immediately pops up....
Having them able to use the TEXT to describe their variables and present their solutions neatly. We focused so much on the math work that I didn't do enough on using the text component to explain the setup and solution. Sigh.... only so many hours in a class is one excuse, but it is an excuse, I should have done it. Goal for the next unit.
And another thing... having them use the HELP function in case they got stuck during a test.
They are also spending a long time (relatively speaking) per question on the Maple as opposed to the written portion. They finished up the written part (3 algebraic solutions, 1 graphical, 2 analysis questions) in about a half hour, then took another half hour to finish up 1 graphical & 1 algebraic question in Maple. Something is up there... going to survey them to see what they thought.
