### Five Tips for Tests

Tip 1: Gauge your time

Unless it's a take home test, you only have so much time to get it done. Look at the mark's for each question. Figure out the time to give each answer.

Tip 2: Know the rules

Tip 3: Plan your attack

Often it's to take a minute or two to think about HOW you're going to answer the question.

Tip 4: Fill the space

If there are five lines for an answer, or a big space on the sheet, fill the lines or the space. They give you an idea how big an answer your teacher expects.**Tip 5: Check your answer**

In math, work backwards to make sure your is right. Language arts, proofread to make sure your spelling and punctuation are correct.

* Here are some easy tips for doing better in test. Keep them in mind when you get ready for the next one *

### Exam Review (:

*300*kids were asked what was their favourite color ( shown on circle graph )

*Answers :*

*estimated*ratio of circumference to diameter ?

*****

**2r = d**

*** c = 2 pi r**( sorry, i couldnt find the pi symbol on my laptop )

12 x 3.14

circumference = 37.68 cm

* MEMORIZE THESE FORMULAS *

d = 2r

c = pi d

Find the *area* when the *diameter* is 10 meters

A = 3.14 x 5 (5)

**72 degrees.**

*** remember all circles are made up of 360 degrees.**

*How much space do I have left in my yard*

**450**

**113.04 m**

**336.96 m squared.**

Ao = pi r squared.

Ao = 3.14 x 17 squared

A0 = 3.14 x 289

A0 = 907.46 ft squared
