Quiz 12 solutions .

No make-ups will be given after that.

If you are doing well, keep it up but remember GRADE DROPS AFTER FINAL for most students. The reason is that majority of students find it hard to get even a C on final, for various reasons. So If you want an A in final, you need to have close to or more than 100% before final, and so on.
