**Please note: this web page is from a past edition of MATH 101. Make sure you go to the current MATH 101 web page to get the proper information.**

Quizzes will be held every second week in your **normal lecture time and place**. Each quiz will be 15 minutes long and consist of one very short answer question, two short answer questions, and (on the back of the page) one long answer question. We will enforce the following policies to help prevent students from cheating on the quizzes:

- You must write the quiz
**in your own section**(the one you are officially registered in), unless you have explicit prior permission from your instructor. If you are physically present in any section other than your own during a quiz, you will receive a mark of 0 on that quiz. - You must bring
**your student ID**to each quiz and be prepared to show it to the invigilators. If you do not have proper identification for a quiz, you will receive a mark of 0 on that quiz.

Other than your student ID, all you need for each quiz is something to write with. (Pens are preferred, but pencils are allowed as long as they write darkly enough to be easily read. Red pens are not allowed.) The quizzes are completely **closed book**: you cannot use any books or notes of any kind. Also, you **cannot use calculators** on the quizzes. (For this reason, you should get used to not using calculators when you do the homework assignments.) You will **not be allowed** to have phones, pencil cases, or other electronic devices out while taking the midterms, nor will you be allowed to use headphones or earbuds.

We will post detailed solutions to the quizzes so that they are a good resource for your studying. Your solutions on the timed quizzes won't need to be as verbose. That being said, *don't be afraid to use words in addition to clearly written mathematics*! The better we can see your thought process, the more partial credit we will be able to give if the final answer isn't exactly right.

Each of the six quizzes will be weighted equally to determine the quiz portion of your overall grade; no quiz scores will be dropped.

See the missed assessment web page about what to do if you are unable to attend a quiz.

Each quiz will focus on the previous two weeks of material (where “week” is to be understood as described on the syllabus), but may contain earlier material as well. The **dates** of the quizzes are listed below.

The quizzes, with solutions and marking schemes, will be posted during the weekend after each quiz. The quiz you took can be found among the versions in the column corresponding to your section:

- Thursdays: sections 209 and 210
- Friday mornings: sections 201, 202, 203, and 213 (even though noon isn't technically “morning”)
- Friday afternoons: sections 205, 206, 207, and 211

Some sections of MATH 101 will return your quiz papers to you in class, a week after the quiz. For other sections, however, you will need to go to the Math Learning Centre (MLC), which is in rooms LSK 301 and 302 (Leonard S. Klinck Building), to pick up your quiz paper.

You can check your individual section's web page: if it instructs you to get your quiz papers from the MLC, you can go there anytime between 10:00 AM and 6:00 PM Monday through Friday to pick up your quiz from the Quick Help desk; quizzes will be available there starting on the Thursday after your quiz. (If your section's web page doesn't say anything about returning quizzes, it means you will get them back in class.)

You will need your student ID and your section number to obtain your quiz; quizzes will not be given to anyone besides the person who wrote it. You should pick up your quiz as soon as possible; unclaimed quizzes will be shredded five weeks after the quiz date.

If you find an addition error in totaling your problem grades to yield your overall grade, you can simply circle your grade and show the error to your instructor, who will verify and correct the error and record the corrected grade.

If, after your midterm is returned to you, you feel that your grade on an individual problem deserves to be reconsidered, you can request a regrade from your instructor—but **only** by following these steps:

- First, check your answer carefully against the solutions and grading scheme posted on your section's web page. The majority of the time, doing so will help you realize why the problem was graded the way it was.
- If you still believe that the problem wasn't graded correctly, print out and complete a
**quiz regrade form**to give to your instructor with your quiz paper. - On the regrade form, state your specific argument for believing you earned more marks than were given. "I think my solution to #4 is right" is not a specific argument; it would have to be something like "I only received 1 mark on problem #4, but the grading scheme has 2 marks for the correct initial equation and 2 marks for an attempt at integrating by parts, and I did both those things in the bottom left part of the page." Requests for regrades that are not specific, or that do not use the regrade form, will not be accepted. Also note that "I had the right idea" or "I think I deserve more marks" are not valid arguments. Remember that we can grade only what you wrote, not what you were thinking at the time.

Occasionally some students try to cheat by changing their answers to quiz questions and then requesting a regrade. Such an action, of course, is a serious violation of UBC's academic misconduct policy, as well as a breach of personal integrity. We scan every single student's quiz papers as a way to detect these rare cases of cheating.
