Anyone have comments on the Free response... Most of my students
thought the first five were easy and 6 was hard.... Guess I need to
work on exponentials a little harder next year...
Four of five thought they had gotten a 9 on question 5 and were
worried that they had overlooked something deeper...
ABOUT problem 6 part B.... One who had a good background in Physics
did the problem without Calculus and then worried that they wouldn't
get credit for solving 2v=-32 so they wrote out the limit problem with
their answer from part a, and discovered they had the wrong answer and
quickly erased the limit and went back to the simple equation (???
points off????)... One did part B without getting part A, and wondered
if he would get credit... I suggested that he should have written a
note saying if velocity is terminal then dv/dt =0 and thus...but I
think that is the influence of doing AP stats this year also....

Most said there was a time crunch on the MC as opposed to the Stats MC
test where they had so much time they got bored....
Curious about other students?????
