Please be neat-we cannot grade what we cannot decipher.
All work and answers must be in the space provided on the exam booklet. You are welcome to use
scratch pages that we provide but when you hand in the exam we will not accept any pages other
than the exam booklet.
Exam Grading
In grading of the exams we will be focusing on your level of understanding of the material
associated with each problem. When we grade each part of a problem we will do our best to assess, from
your work, your level of understanding. On each part of an exam question we will also indicate the
percentage of the total exam grade represented by that part, and your numerical score on the exam will
then be calculated accordingly.
Our assessment of your level of understanding will be based upon what is given in your solution. A
correct answer with no explanation will not receive full credit, and may not receive much-if any. An
incorrect final answer having a solution and explanation that shows excellent understanding quite likely
will receive full (or close to full) credit.
