6.096 Quiz 1 Handout
The first in-class examination will be held on Monday, 6 October, 1997,
in 66-110. It will cover material from lecture and lecture notes up to
and including 24 September and laboratories up to and including Laboratory
2, Nodes and Channels.
You will have 75 minutes for the exam.
You may bring one sheet of 8.5"x11" paper containing handwritten notes
to the exam. You must write out your own paper, although you may work together
with other students to decide what to put on the paper. You may use both
sides of the paper.
The format of this exam will be "negative multiple choice". Each question
has exactly one correct answer and five incorrect ones. Instead of getting
points for picking the right answer, you get points for eliminating the
other (wrong) answers. Each wrong answer that you cross out is worth +2
points. However, if you cross out the right answer, that is worth -10 points.
This means that if you cross out all six answers, you will get (5 x 2)
- 10 points (0).
This way, you can get full credit if you know which answer is correct
(by crossing out all of the incorrect answers). You can also get partial
credit if you are sure that one of the answers is incorrect, even if you
don't know which other answer is the correct one.
We will consider an answer to be crossed out if you have put an X through
the letter at the beginning of the answer.
What is the name of the instructor of this class?
If you were pretty sure that Elle McPherson is not hanging around MIT,
you could cross her name out. This would be worth 2 points.
Lynn Andrea Stein
Similarly, you might remember that Lt. Uhura only seems like
an MIT type, so you could eliminate her name. You're up to 4 points now.
If you reach this point and are stumped, you can stop here. You would
receive 4 points out of a possible 10.
If you're pretty sure that you can eliminate Anne Hunter, Course VI
Goddess, because she wouldn't be caught dead this far away from building
38, you'd get another 2 points: 6/10.
And if you now decide that Stephanie Hong is an oft-seen face around
the 6.096 lab, you could eliminate Barbara Liskov and Lynn Andrea Stein.
Unfortunately, this would get you another +2 for Barbara Liskov, whom
you'll meet in 6.170, but a -10 for crossing out the name of the 6.096
professor, for a total of -2. It's a bad idea to eliminate a choice unless
you're sure it's wrong.
