- A pencil/pen.
- A calculator (optional).

For all problems: If
your code for one of the problems works properly, you should get it
checked off. There are points associated with the check off
itself. The only code in
the programs should be the code which is necessary to accomplish the
task—points will be deducted if there is extra stuff that we
need to sort through. At the end of the test, put your code in
the Moodle drop box.
