They won't be collected, but I **STRONGLY** encourage you to keep up with them because...
### Quizzes

Most discussion sections will begin with a 10-15 minute quiz **which consists of problems taken DIRECTLY from the assigned homework**. I will drop the lowest **two** quiz scores when computing your final grade.
### Exams

There will be two in-class midterm exams:

**Midterm 1:** Monday, October 22

**Midterm 2:** Monday, November 19

You **MUST** bring your student ID with name matching that on the exam and picture matching the face on your head. There are **NO MAKE-UP MIDTERMS.** If you have to miss a midterm for whatever reason, it will be dropped and your final grade will be calculated according to formula 1 above.

The final exam is on Thursday, December 13th at 3pm. You **MUST** take the final to pass the class, and there are **NO MAKE-UPS**. Keep this in mind when scheduling holiday travel, for instance.
### Resources

Aside from myself and the TAs, there are various in-person and online resources available to you as you learn this material. Here are a few:

### Academic Integrity

Cheating is an extremely dumb idea. If you cheat, you could easily ruin your college career. So, don't do it.
