There will be a short quiz at the beginning of class each Monday (see the course calendar for exact dates). This quiz will cover material from the homework and class lectures from the preceding week (the information covered by the WeBWorK and written homework assignments).
The questions on the quiz will be similar to the homework problems, but will not be identical to them. That is, they will not simply be the same problems you have already seen but with the numbers changed. You may be asked to combine ideas from class to solve a problem that you have never seen before. See the course philosophy for information about why this is the case.
See the discussion of the grading policy for the percentage of your grade that will come from your quizzes, and for policy on missed and dropped quizzes.
If you have a learning disability for which you should receive extra time on quizzes, you must inform me of this by Monday of the second week of class (since the first quiz will be on the next Wednesday). You also should make arrangements with the office of the Dean of Students to inform me that they have the proper documentation for your condition on file.
