What to do
if you have received a low grade on a quiz

want to receive a better grade
for a similar problem on a forthcoming test

  1. In the corresponding homework assignment, find a problem that is most similar to the quiz problem for which you received a low grade.
  2. Redo that homework problem.  That is, first try to work out that problem without consulting your class notes or your own solution that you had written previously.  If you have difficulty doing so, find an example in the class notes (or in the book) that is most similar to that homework problem, read that example, and follow its lines to do the homework problem in question.
  3. Return to the quiz problem and attempt it again.

If you have difficulty completing Step 2 above, see the instructor for help.
