Hi Everyone,

Here are a couple of tips about this worksheet. It isn't as hard or easy as you might think. Not hard because all the answers are in the textbook. You don't need to find any other sources. Not as easy, because you have to really read the textbook to find all the answers. I would like to see citations for your short answers, but not the fill in the blank or matching questions and no, there isn't a word count requirement for those short answers. Also, you may use bullet points for those short answers.
