Quizzes After each homework assignment has been completed, you will take an online quiz. Quizzes are due each Friday at 11:55 p.m. The quizzes will be given on Blackboard. Their purpose is to help you solidify the concepts you have learned and to help me to assess how well you have learned the lesson material. Each quiz consists of a combination of multiple-choice questions and problems. Therefore, to do well on the quizzes, you will need to understand concepts as well as work problems.
