Today in math class, Mr. Juan gave us a pop quiz. 

Correct answer:

Today in math class, Mr. Juan gave us a pop quiz. 

Explanation:

To answer this question correctly, we need to know that titles need to be capitalized. Titles such as Mr., Miss., and Mrs. always need to be capitalized and end with a period. Also, when we are talking about a specific president, "President" needs to be capitalized because it is the person's title. 

"Today in math class, Mr. Juan gave us a pop quiz." is the correct answer.
