2) The person with exam code 629 .... it IS 624 and NOT 629.

3) The students with following exam codes did not give me the bottom part of their first page of exam and therefore I don't have their names in my list. They need to come to my office (with the bottom half of the first page of their quiz 1). The exam codes are 268, 400, 454, 458, 604

Some students do not have Ch.  21 in their version of the text.  You can find Ch. 21 here.  The quiz will cover only the part of Ch. 21 that was discussed in class.
