In this paper a combination of discontinuous, piecewise linear, finite elements with implicit-explicit time stepping is considered for convection-reaction equations. Combined with low order quadrature rules, this leads to convenient schemes. We shall consider the effect of such low order quadrature rules on accuracy and stability for one-dimensional problems.
