In order to begin the online quiz, you must score at least 70% on the associated online homework assignment . (If you do not score a 70% or higher on the homework by the due date, you will not be able to take the associated quiz which will result in you earning a 0% on that quiz.) Quizzes can be taken up to seven times and the highest score of all the attempts will be the recorded grade for that particular quiz. Quizzes constitute 8% of your course grade. In the unlikely event that you are unable to access My Math Lab through the website, please use the following: . Calculator: You may use a Texas Instruments TI-30XA calculator on the tests.
