The grading system for this class: THANKS ! to the students who came on Wednesday afternoon to figure this out! A. Quizzes are worth 30%, Midterm 30%, and Final 40%. Each exam is normalized by dividing by the mean. There are different versions of each quiz, and there is a make-up for the midterm and for the final, but the normalized scores can be compared. We intend for the median course grade to be a B+. If you got the mean on every test, you would get a B+ in the course. B. There will be a total of 10 quizzes during the semester. Each student should plan to take 9 . In other words, a student can miss one of the first 9 quizzes for ANY REASON (and no need to explain why!) , then take the very last quiz, and still have 9 quizzes taken.

A total of 9 quizzes can be taken ( 8 counted toward your grade) from among the 10 quizzes that will be offered . If you took fewer than 9 for any reason, then you would be eligible to take the "make-up quiz" on Wed 12/1 .

If you miss more than two quizzes, e-mail Prof. F. DO NOT see Prof. F. to explain why you missed any given one quiz or even up to two quizzes (You could still take the make-up quiz and thereby have the necessary 8 quizzes for calculating your quiz grade).
