G RADING Your grade for this course will be based on six problem sets, one mid-term exam, and a final exam. The fraction of the points allocated to each is shown below. The problem set with the lowest score will be dropped. Thus, your score on the problem sets will be calculated from your score on your five best problem sets. An alternative grade breakdown is provided for students who do poorly on the midterm but who do better on the final. Your score will be calculated using both point allocations, and the highest score will be chosen automatically.
