## Drills & Reading Quizzes

### General policy

**Drills**must be completed before your problem session on Friday. They are worth 2 points, and you get full credit for completing the drill.**Reading Quizzes**must be completed by**9:00 AM**on the Tuesday they are due. They are worth 2 points each, and your score depends on how many out of 5 you get correct: 2 points for a 5/5 or 4/5, 1 point for 3/5 or 2/5, and 0 points for 1/5 or 0/5.

If there are ever any problems with the drills or reading quizzes, please send an email to Tom Solomon.
