On Friday, Oct. 16th during the drop-in tutorial meet, we have gone over the answers to Quiz 1. These answers are also found in the Content section, under Unit 1.
Quiz 1a was posted on Friday afternoon and was not mandatory for those who did well on the first one. Either way, I will be taking the higher of the 2 marks (if the students have done both of them). Both quizzes are on the same material, namely Topics 1.1 and 1.2 from Unit 1.
