Given Upcoming Math test..
I know I have to show all work and support answers. But how detailed do we have to explain?
Like For example:
E^(ax)/(2E^(ax))
I would look at this and think.. ok..
negative exponent first.
E^(ax) (2E^ax)^1
Then product rule, on the whole expression, exponent with constant multiple on the left, with chain rule on the right, then a constant with difference rule, and exponent with constant multiple again.. Then applying product rule, after getting d/dx Left and right, I then need add up f[x]g'[x]+g[x]f'[x], then simplify. thats a lot so is the algebra enough?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or do I need to state what Im thinking at every turn? Or would you think it's enought to jsut say, Im going to use product rule on the expression, and chain on the right term. then just show the algebra and move on.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and when you actually give an answer, how do you identify the actual final answer given all the scribble all over the page? Is there a formal method? Do you think they allow colored pens?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just need general advice on how you approach tests, cant find anything about this on google or youtube.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This is what I do add a short description of what you are doing like start by saying 'Applying the Produce/Chain Rule' then do the algebra Finally write 'Answer ' as the last word.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There's certainly no need to write what you are thinking at every turn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Unless it's a proof or your questions is in the format of Prove or disprove Show that Prove/ Disprove the Converse/ Contrapositive you just have to do computation. Writing too much in computation can waste your time and you won't be able to finish the test.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thanks guys, yes, thats what I was looking for. I'm inherently slow and cautious and take 4 times longer than I should on every problem, and 3rd guess every step. I've tried some mock 20 question tests, and been trying to finish them in under 90 minutes, but I barely get half way. so looking for shortcuts to speed things up.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you dont have to write stuff like f[x]g'[x]+g[x]f'[x] then... just using ..product rule..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1don't have to... just solve... solve solve quickly, yet accurately as possible.
