**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 20 minutes long and consist of one short answer question and two long answer questions. 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. - Also, you must
**code your student ID number**in the boxes on the front of the quiz, and you must**use a black pen**to do so. (You can write the quiz itself with any kind of pen or pencil, except for red pens.)

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, and there will not be a list of formulas provided for you (with only a few specific exceptions, listed on the course syllabus page). 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 quizzes, 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.

WeBWorK problems and suggested problems are an excellent source of quiz questions, so they also provide an excellent way to study for the quizzes. In addition, you may look at all of last year's MATH 101 quizzes for additional practice material (though note that the quiz format, while quite similar, is not exactly the same as it is be this year).

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

There are no make-up quizzes in MATH 101. 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 units of material (where “unit” 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

Your physical quiz papers will not be returned to you; instead, scanned copies of your marked quizzes will be available online. To obtain your marked quiz, first go to Connect (where you can find your quiz scores themselves) and take note of the "quiz code" associated with your quizzes. Then, go to the **MATH 101 quiz return page** and type in your student number and your quiz code. Finally, simply select the quiz you want to view; you may either view it online or download a PDF copy for yourself. The files will remain online all semester, if you want to view your old quizzes later.

Quizzes should be ready for retrieval a week after you write each quiz. You should make it part of your study habit to read each marked quiz carefully and compare your answers against the solutions posted above. The purpose of the quizzes is to provide you with important feedback—take advantage of that feedback!

If you find a recording error (the score on your quiz paper doesn't match the score recorded in Connect), just bring the error to the attention of your instructor, who will verify and correct the error.

If, after your quiz 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. Remember that the grader can only grade what you wrote on the quiz, not what you were thinking at the time.
- If you still believe that the problem wasn't graded correctly, print out and complete a
**quiz regrade form**. Also print out a copy of your quiz paper itself, but*do not write on the quiz paper*! Staple the completed quiz regrade form to the front of your quiz paper and give it your instructor. - 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.

We emphasize: there is *never* any need to write on a printed copy of your quiz paper. Doing so, especially in the context of a regrade request, will be interpreted as trying to cheat by changing answers to quiz questions after the fact. Such an action, of course, is a serious violation of UBC's academic misconduct policy, as well as a breach of personal integrity.
