Discussion Sections: Attendance Each discussion section will begin with a quiz covering the previous week’s lecture material (~10 min.). If you are late for discussion section, you will miss the quiz and receive a zero. In the remainder of the discussion section, TAs will lecture on a topic related to course material. These lectures will be covered on midterms and the final exam . Discussion section will account for 21.5% of your final grade. Your grade in discussion section will be based on attendance (3.5 points) and quizzes (18 points). There will be a total of 7 quizzes, and you will be allowed to drop your lowest grade (such as a zero for a missed quiz), so your quiz grade will be based on your best 6 quizzes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
