Homework & Quizzes  Students
are required to do the homework every week. The weekly quiz on
Wednesday will be a test based on the
homework of the week. The homework will NOT be graded, but students
needing
some feedback are advised to turn it in at the
Monday
recitation class and to ask the TA to grade it. There will be 12
quizzes
during the Fall semester but only the 10 best ones will be counted in
the final grade.
An absence on a quiz will be graded 0 (zero) (so that only if a student is absent less than twice, it will not affect his final grade). 
1Hour Test  There
will be
twice a 1Hour test (50') during the Fall semester. The first one on Wednesday September 27th after the end of the Analysis course, The other one on Wednesday November 1st in the middle of the Algebra course
