4.2 There is NO guarantee that final grades will be curved. Individual components of the grade will not be adjusted during the semester to achieve a grade distribution curve, and, therefore, should be viewed on a traditional scale as follows: A 93% and above A- 90% – 92% B+ 87% - 89% B 83% - 86% B- 80% - 82% C+ 77% - 79% C 73% - 76% C- 70% - 72% D+ 67% - 69% D 63% - 66% D- 60% - 62% F 0% – 59% Section 5. Important Information: 5.1 This course is coordinated by Dr. Easterwood. Dr. Easterwood prepares all the exams and determines final grades. You may contact Dr. Easterwood by email at cmeast@vt.edu or by phone at 231-7920. 5.2 This course is a difficult course. Exam averages tend to be in the 60’s. Unlike other courses you may have taken, you cannot get by with simply reading the lecture notes and/or listening to the lecture. This is a course where students must study and must PRACTICE applying the concepts learned in class. If you merely read the book and listen to the comments made in class, you might think you understand the material but when it comes time to work a problem on a test you won’t know how to do it. You must work problems and exercises in order to do well in this class. Learning
