Day 126: Discussion and Assessment

As usual, even after 1.5 class periods to work, most students weren't finished with their work. I did still check the worksheet for completion at the start of class (to confirm my suspicion), then went through as many problems on the worksheet as we could to still allow 15 mins at the end of class for a quiz. 

I don't normally give quizzes on the day we go over something, because it's not a measure of retention. Possibly just a confirmation bias, but results on the quiz were much higher than usual. My main reason for doing this was that I have tomorrow planned in the computer lab, and I hate trying to proctor a quiz in a foreign environment.
