Statement on the Grading of Problem Sets
Hand in your problem set on time.
Circle your final answers.
Staple your work.
We don’t necessarily grade every question on the problem set.
The problem sets are out
of ten points, so we are usually just looking for ten specific numbers.
We don’t give partial credit on the problem sets for a number of reasons.
First, what we
are testing is your ability to actually correctly solve each problem.
Second, it is not
feasible for us to give partial credit on the problem sets given the size of the class.
If we
are grading at least 100 problems sets per week, that means we have to check over 1000
numbers per week.
We always want to be looking for the exact same ten numbers every
time we grade a problem set.
Hence, you should take the time to check over your final
answers.
If you ever have questions on any of the problem sets, you should feel free to come see
us.
Once the scores for a particular problem set are posted on the web page, you have one
week to come see us if you think your score was recorded incorrectly.
