Although many problems will be assigned, only a representative sampling will actually be graded. Since you will not know in advance which questions will be graded, it is in your best interest to do all of the assigned problems. Pop quizzes will occasionally be given to ensure that you are keeping up on the reading. If you miss a quiz, you will receive a zero.
