To pass the course you must complete 1000 units of work with a GPA of C = 2.00 or better e.g. (C + = 2.33, B‐ = 2.67, B = 3.00, B+ = 3.33, A‐ = 3.67, A = 4.00, A+ = 4.33). The units of work are distributed as follows. Assignment Number Units Possible Units Quizzes 10 35 350 Homework 5 50 250 Bonus Problems 10 10 100 Class Notes 2 150 300 Midterm 1 250 250 Final 1 250 250 1500 1 PHI 330 Advanced Symbolic Logic Professor Gary Mar The system of grading depends on distinguishing units of work for an assignment (quantity) and the grade you earn on that assignment (quality). Your cumulative grade in the course is computed as the weighted average of your grades on the various assignments, i.e., the sum of the product of the units times the grades on each assignment divided by the total number of units earned. You can therefore compute your GPA for the course during the semester. For example, if you’ve done 4 quizzes with (B, B‐, B+, A) and 3 homework assignments (A, A‐, B+) and two class notes (A, A) and one midterm (A‐) your course GPA would be calculated as follows: GPA = {[(3.00 * 35) + (2.67 * 35) + (3.33 * 35) + (4.00 * 35)] + [(4.0...
