Unit 5: End of Unit Exam
This assignment consists of four parts. The first is a review with a couple of practice questions linked directly to their answers. The second is a short quiz that you take using Blackboard. It will be instantly scored for you by Blackboard; you only get one chance to take it, however, so be sure you are ready! The third part is an essay question. The question appears below; when you are ready to answer it, log on to Blackboard and submit your essay. Finally, for each unit, you should log on to Blackboard and contribute a question, an answer, or a comment to one of the posted topics. If you would like to introduce a new topic instead of contributing to an existing thread, please send your topic idea to your instructor. If you find the material in this unit challenging, you might want to start with the "discussion" part of the assignment in order to get some help with some of the ideas.
To use Blackboard you will need to be signed up as a student in the course. That means that first you must enroll for credit and then you can login to Blackboard. The instructor will verify that you are enrolled in the course and verify your enrollment in EveningStar.
Brief summary of Unit Five:
When you are ready, login to Blackboard and take Quiz Five.
You will get instant feedback on your score on Quiz Five (and your instructor will also be informed of your score). If your score is OK, you may proceed directly to the Essay Question Four on Blackboard. Otherwise, you might want to look at what you missed, ask your instructor about questions you missed, or review relevant parts of the unit.
A baseball game in space. Taking a break
from assembling the space station, a bunch of astronauts decide to
try playing baseball. They put on their spacesuits and jetpacks and
go "outside" to play. In each part, when I say "what
happens to ..." I mean does he or it start or stop moving? How
fast and in what direction? In each case explain how you know the
answer to the question.
Don't forget to contribute to the discussion on Blackboard on one of the topics in this unit!
