On the exam: 1. 30 points = Passing 2. 60 points = highest C+ 3. 90 points = highest B+ 4. 120 points = highest possible score I will come up with questions such that: 1. Getting all zero star questions will be enough to pass (30 points) 2. Getting all the zero and one star questions will be a C+ (30 points) 3. Getting all zero, one, and two star questions will be a B+ (30 points) 4. Getting all zero, one, two, and three star questions will be an A (A+ if that were possible) (30 points) Note: points are points, so if you miss some zero star questions but get three star questions, they will compensate.

Lecture notes For example, there are no elasticity questions in this document, but they may very well be on the final. The final is cumulative.
