The 3rd Trimester Extra Credit is here!
Same rules as usual. 10 questions, 3 points each, for a total of 30 points. Answer each question completely--no partial credit given. You may choose which questions you want to answer. Two of them? Great. All of them? Ok.
When you turn your extra credit in (either by e-mail or handing it to me in school), you will not get it back. I will tell you which questions are incorrect, if any. You may re-do those questions and resubmit answers to me.
