Announcement Optional makeup quiz To be given same day as final (Tues. 4/20, 3 weeks from now) Same day as final exam. Will be CUMULATIVE; 10 questions multiple choice Will replace lowest quiz grade Intended for those students who have missed two quizzes due to illness or other unavoidable absence Students who’ve missed three quizzes will have to live with one zero grade More than what should be expected, so please be APPRECIATEIVE and don’t whine for more “You have nothing to lose by taking this quiz.” Trojan War “Meanwhile, back at Troy…” Hector and Andromache Hector’s scene with his wife Andromache and their infant son, Astyanax (Said: Wife asks him to stay inside, he cannot, they talk plainly about the wife and infant being a slave.
