The quiz covers Chapters 1, 2 and 3.

In particular, when there are calculations involved, you should show how you come up with your answers with critical work and/or necessary tables. Answers that come straight from program software packages will not be accepted.

The quiz is open book and open notes. This means that you may refer to your textbook, notes, and online course materials, but you must work independently and may not consult anyone.

You may take as much time as you wish, provided you turn in your quiz via LEO assignments folder by 11:59 pm EDT on Sunday, September 7.
