Quiz Policy: If you have missed the QUIZ entirely or you just "missed" individual answers, you are invited to submit a take-home version of ALL missed or corrected answers next week, by Thursday at the latest, just to show you "are with it".
There will be ONE in-class make-up (or "grade-improvement") quiz at the end of the quarter for one missed or "missed" quiz. This make-up is open to all who have submitted at least the take-home version for this missed (or to be improved) quiz at the due date.
All quiz grades can be partially improved by submitting take-home versions with answers formulated in your own words. These take-home responses will count as "participation" and will count more if they are submitted before the originals are returned in class, i.e. one week after the quiz was given.
