Progress Test 1 (Evaluation 51) covers the course materials that were assigned in Units 1 and 2. Although the progress test is similar in style to the unit evaluations, the progress test is a closed-book test. You may not have access to notes or any of the course materials while you are taking the test. You may also use your graphing calculator on this test.

The Summary of Formulas and Trigonometric Tables from the Appendix is included for your use during the test. ____ 1.
