Important things to remember when taking tests:

  • Tests auto-save your answers! Don't worry if you close the page or walk away from the computer, all of your selections will be remembered when you come back.
  • When you are finished, click the "Submit" button at the bottom of the test. Be careful: submitting tests cannot be undone.

Instructions

You may use any course materials, websites, books, computer programs, calculators, etc. for this test.  Just don't ask another person for the answers or share your answers with other people.  Be aware that simply typing the question text into google is unlikely to get you directly to the right answer; you're going to have to read what you find there in order to extract that answer, and the course videos are probably a faster way to do that.

"Experts" notes clarify situations that haven't been covered in this course, but that may introduce subtleties into the exam answers.  Do not worry about them unless  you understand the terms and issues in those notes.

If you have questions about this test, please email us at nonlinear@complexityexplorer.org rather than posting on the forum.

Note: the placement of the radio buttons for questions 2-4 in the downloadable pdf file for this unit test is different than their placement in the web version.  In the former, the buttons are to the bottom left of the images from which you are to choose; in the latter, they're to the top left.  Since the pdf version is generated automatically by the website software, there's no way for me to fix this.  So please be careful!
