# Quizzes

On most days, 15 minutes of class will be a quiz taken from the homework assigned on the previous day. There will be no quizzes on exam days or on the first or last day of class, so there will be 17 quizzes in all. If (for any reason) we cannot hold a quiz as scheduled, then we'll make it up on the next class day. These will be based heavily on the homework.

For a quiz, you may use your notes, so you may refer to your homework assignment if you did it. However, you may not use your book or anything else not written by you. You certainly should not talk to other people. Calculators will usually be allowed, although you shouldn't really need them; all of the numbers in the problems will be simple.

When I return a quiz, I'll post my solutions here; see the downloading help if you have trouble reading them. (If you took a Quiz early or late, then you may have taken a different version.)
