On each calendar day, the part above the line is what you should be ready to do in class; the part below the line is what you need to do before the next class period.
“Q&D” stands for “Quiz and Discuss”, and means that you should be ready to share your effort on any homework problem for the section, both on an Effort Quiz and by participating in discussions and board work.
