Midterm Exam 48 points Final Exam 48 points Homeworks 4 points ------------ Total 100 points Note: Homework must be turned in the day of class to receive credit. I realize that there are days you may need to miss class for legitimate reasons. Although late homeworks are not accepted for any reason, the lowest score of the homeworks will be dropped. There is no “extra credit” available, the final grade is based totally on the above assignments. At anytime, you can compute how you are doing in the class by computing the points earned as indicated above, and dividing that by the total possible points to date (do not round in calculating the points earned). Grades may be curved, with the final grades being assigned as follows (with no rounding): A 94 - 100 points C 74 - 76 A- 90 - 93 C- 70 - 73 B+ 87 - 89 D+ 67- 69 B 84 – 86 D 64 - 66
