Formula Writing Quiz Retakes at the beginning of lunch on Tuesday (Nov 1) OR Wednesday (Nov 2).

Note: this is the only quiz or test during the year that you can retake.
I think that this topic is so full of details that it is possible to go in to the test with a false confidence.
If this happened to you, come in and take a new version of the quiz.
I will only plug the "retake" score into your grade if it is higher than your original quiz score.
So even if you got a 14/15 and want to try for a 15/15, go for it! You should definitely do the retake if you scored less than 10/15 on the original.
Check every last detail of your answers while you study for the retake. The practice quizzes are still posted below.
