There will be short Brightspace quizzes due before each lecture. These are intended to serve as a test of basic understanding of the material that is to be read before that lecture.
In the computation of the Brightspace quizzes portion of your grade, your lowest two Brightspace quiz marks will be dropped.
There will be nine DGD quizzes, completed during DGDs on the dates indicated below. DGD quizzes will be conducted using Zoom. See here for details. They will be submitted on Brightspace and should be in .pdf, .jpg, or .png format. Quiz topics will be announced several days before each quiz. Solutions will be posted in Brightspace.

Collaboration and academic fraud
Academic fraud is taken seriously in this course. See the university policy posted here.
You should complete the quizzes on your own. General discussions with others are okay, but you should not ask others for the answers, nor should you provide answers to other students. It is not acceptable to post quiz questions online asking for the answers.
All DGD quizzes are closed-book. Calculators are not allowed, nor are they needed. The use of online services or websites during DGD quizzes constitutes academic fraud.
