You should expect a quiz in every meeting (starting with the second meeting). All quizzes will be administered EXACTLY at the scheduled beginning of the laboratory period, which means that you will need to already be in your seat, with your personal items already put away, prepared to take the quiz. In other words, you will not be allowed to be tardy at all. If you arrive late for a quiz, the very least that will happen is that your score will be reduced by 10% for each whole or fractional minute that you are late. Yes, that means that showing up one second late will result in a 10% reduction. So now that you know that, just don't let it happen. If you arrive substantially late, you will receive a zero for the quiz.

Each quiz will include a mix of question types (multiple-choice, short-answer, etc.) that will treat material from both the previous meeting and the current meeting. In other words, you'll need to know and understand what you did previously and what you'll be doing that day.

The best way to study for quizzes is to carefully read the appropriate part of the Laboratory Manual, carefully listen to me (and take notes) when I address the class, carefully listen to the recording, and make thorough and meaningful notes in your laboratory notebook so that you'll be able to refer to your own notebook as a resource for study. In some cases, the Laboratory Manual will instruct you to read something else (like a section of the lecture textbook) to study for a quiz. If you read these sources and assure yourself that you understand the concepts, techniques, or problem-types, then you should do well on the quizzes. If you try to skip the reading, you will likely score poorly on the quizzes.
