A group of people associated with the Mathematics Department at the University of Arizona put a great deal of thought and effort into a set of quiz/review programs for students about to start first and second year courses in Mathematics.
I've been constructing web-versions (cgi applications) of the programs. This makes the quiz/reviews immediately available to anyone on the net. All that is needed is a web browser that supports forms.
Students (or anyone else) can
Students should work out the answer to the each question with pencil and paper, before selecting a response.
The set of web-based quiz/reviews is not as comprehensive as the original set of "Are You Ready" programs. The original programs have two versions of each question, and switch between the versions at (random?) times. The present web-implementations have only a single version of each question. The web-implementation of "Preparation for the advanced placement test" is not available.
"Are You Ready" Acknowledgments
I would like to thank Bob Meyer at the University at Buffalo for helping with getting these cgi applications up on the web server in the Math Department, and Ross Winston for help with cgi applications on the university-wide web server.
The Web-based "Are You Ready" quiz/reviews are implementations in perl of programs written by David Lovelock of the Math Department at the University of Arizona. Prof. Lovelock includes the following note of appreciation with his programs:
