Tutorials: Each student must attend their assigned tutorial on Tuesday of each week. In the first tutorial, the tutors will go over the class information and start a review of algebra. In subsequent tutorials, worksheets and quizzes will be administered and collected in the tutorials.

Each tutorial in which a quiz and worksheet is given, will be given a score of 10 points. The lowest of these tutorial grades will be dropped to calculate your grade out of 100 points.
