These in-class quizzes will be worth 10 points each. Your ten best quiz scores will count toward your course grade. No make-up quizzes will be given.
"Tens Digit" Rule
Scores for missed quizzes and any quiz score that is lower than the "tens" digit of your score on the in-class exam covering the same material will replaced by the minimum of that digit and your highest quiz score over this period. For example, if you score 83 on the first in-class exam and your highest quiz score over that period is at least 5 then the score of any of the first three quizzes that is lower than 8 will be raised to 8. Notice that this policy does not apply to quizzes given after the last in-class exam.
WARNING: Because it rounds down, if you rely on this policy for most of your quizzes then your net quiz score could be one letter grade lower than your average in-class exam score! This policy is intended to provide a safety net that can be used a few times, not as something that should be used often.
If the University closes on the day of a scheduled quiz and no in-class is scheduled for the next lecture period then the quiz will be given during that lecture period. If the University closes on the day of a scheduled quiz and an in-class exam is scheduled for the next lecture period then the quiz will be cancelled and your quiz score will be the "tens" digit of your score on the exam. If the University closes on the day of the last lecture in the term and a quiz scheduled for that day then the quiz will be cancelled without a score replacement.
