Homework & Quizzes  Students
are required to do the homework every week. The weekly quiz on
Wednesday will be a test on the
homework that
has been done. 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 should be about 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 the student is absent less than twice, it will not affect the final grade). 
OneHour Test  There will be
twice a 1Hour test during the Fall semester. The first one after the end of the Analysis course, The other one in the middle of the Algebra course
