Answer key for review sheets?


#1

Having finished studying the review sheet to the best of my ability, I wonder if there is an answer sheet for the review sheet??

No - I do not create answer keys for review sheets. I figure that, given a week to work on a review sheet, students can typically find a way to check there answers in any number of ways - including:

  • Asking in class, if you’ve worked on a problem by Wednesday,
  • Going to our awesome Math Lab,
  • Checking with other students,
  • Checking straight computation problems with WolframAlpha, or
  • Post on this very forum!

More generally, I think that answer keys are a bad idea. Worse than a crutch, they discourage students from thinking about things from multiple angles - which is really the way to double check things when you’ve got to solve a problem by yourself.
