Unformatted text preview: CH 302 Random Musings, Bottom of the Ninth 1. Sadly, the semester has come to an end. I have actually come to know so many of your faces, if not your names, and will remember you kindly. Today in class I will briefly review things to think about for the exam tonight, hand out your very own brass penny, and review issues related to examinations and final grades, and then set off the traditional quadruple thunderstorm. 2. Evaluations. It is your responsibility as a student to complete course instructor evaluations for every course you take. You should have received an electronic invitation to complete this survey, but if you haven’t, you can do so by going to the following web link: https://utdirect.utexas.edu/diia/ecis/ and opening up the survey for CH302 unique number 51635. You have until 5/6/2007 (this Friday) to complete the survey. Thanks for remembering to do this. 3. I have the good fortune of being able to handpick my TAs, and I do a pretty great job of it. Mostly being freshmen, you will not have the experience yet, to know that this is about as good as it gets. I can’t thank them enough for their efforts—you will be lucky to see something like this again from TAs at UT. 4. Reprinted below are the grading cutoffs for the course. There are both the original cutoffs and the new cutoffs that apply IF you turn in all your extra credits. The weight of the extra credit depends on the grading scheme but corresponds to 1% of the grade for each extra credit handed in. Do not worry about which of these grading schemes applies to you. I will assign the one that best benefits you. Grading: The Cutoffs 5. Extra credit points. You have had the chance to 3% back on your grade from extra credit. There will certainly be some errors in recording your extra credit what with the manual recording process so please do not panic if points are missing. I will reconcile what I have for your totals versus what you say you have done the green sheet you will turn in today. If there is a contradiction, I will e-mail you to confirm. I need these extra credits to determine exemption, so please get them in as soon as possible. 6. If you are missing Quest scores or believe that they are in error, it is your job to fill out a regrade request. Travis will send me the information to post about how to get errors remedied and it is up to you to follow no extra credit submitted three extra credit submitted—3% reduction course grade exemption (700 points) cumulative (1000 points) final (300 points) exemption (700 points) cumulative (1000 points) final (300 points) A 651 930 279 630 900 270 A- 630 900 270 609 870 261 B+ 870 261 830 249 B 830 249 800 240 B- 800 240 770 231 C+ 770 231 730 219 C 730 219 700 210 C- 700 210 670 201 D <700 <210 <670 <201 F <600 <180 <570 <171...
