Please contact me ASAP regarding any needs for auxiliary aids/services (alternative methods of meeting course requirement, special test taking needs, etc.). WEEKLY QUIZ: A short quiz (~3 questions) will be given at the end of class every Friday based on material covered in lectures that week. Quizzes CANNOT BE MADE UP if missed, but can taken early if needed (you can miss 2 with no penalty- or if you miss none, you can end up with up to 30 pts extra!). Questions on the Exams will draw directly from questions on the quizzes. HOMEWORK: Homework is due 4 times during the semester (1/30, 2/20, 3/26 & 4/16). You are required to turn in one HW assignment at each of the due dates. Late homework will NOT BE ACCEPTED. If you must miss class the day HW is due, turn it in early. Two will be “current news items” and two will be “suggested quiz / exam questions”. You decide what to turn in on required HW due dates (note: you can work on these all ASAP!).

    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.
