2 Requirements and Grading Creation/Application  Comprehension/Coercion In-Lecture Writing: [5%] Over the course of the semester, between three and nine pop quizzes and other assignments will occur during lecture. Pop quizzes may cover a reading due on the day of the quiz, any item from the previous two lectures, or other materials you would reasonably be expected to know on a given day. Although they will be closed book and closed note, pop quizzes are designed to be easy, to reward your for keeping up with the course. (Students who require special exam accommodations should notify the professor during the first week of class.) We will drop your two lowest quiz scores (including “0” scores for nonattendance). Beyond the two freebies, missed pop quizzes or in-class assignments cannot be made up and are not “excused” for any reason whatsoever. Final Exam
