First Graded Quiz

The first graded quiz will be given on Tuesday next week.

The questions from the graded quiz are taken from the ungraded quizzes of the previous week.

Unless I tell you otherwise, you should expect a graded quiz each week.

If you miss the graded quiz on Tuesday you can take it on Thursday.

If you miss it on both Tuesday and Thursday you will get a 0 on the quiz.
